Roborock: The Next Generation of Smart Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

A robotic vacuum cleaner is an autonomous robotic vacuum cleaner that is programmed in such a way that it can clean the floor automatically or it can also be controlled by a person using the mobile application. As with everything there are multiple advantages and disadvantages of using a robotic vacuum cleaner compared to the traditional ones.

The robotic vacuum cleaner was first introduced in 1996, despite being innovative, it had a lot of flaws and the product failed in the market. Since then many companies have tried to build a robotic vacuum cleaner, but could not achieve the results that the audience wanted.

Until 2016, when a company called Roborock, which was being funded by Xiaomi created a robotic vacuum cleaner called MI Home Robotic Vacuum Cleaner.

About Roborock

Founded in 2014, Beijing Roborock Technology Co., Ltd. It is also known as Roborock started. Roborock is a research, development and, production company for robotic vacuum cleaners.

Roborock’s headquarters are in Beijing and they have multiple offices throughout China. Consisting of a team of people from multiple educational disciplines, and experience in different fields like algorithm development, electronic engineering, mechanical structure design, and manufacturing. Their end goal is to make a truly functional and durable product and help people in their daily lives.

History of Roborock

In July of 2014, Roborock was established, they started working on a robotic vacuum cleaner. Later that year in 2014, Roborock received an investment from the tech giant, Xiaomi which was a huge milestone for them. Two years of vigorous hard work finally paid off and in September 2016, they launched their first product called MI Home Robotic Vacuum Cleaner. The MI Home Robotic Vacuum Cleaner later became the bestselling robotic cleaner in China. Later in March 2017, they marketed their product in Taiwan, and a turnover of NTD 130 million was received.

Later that year, Roborock launched its second product in the market called “the Roborock robotic cleaner”, and through crowdfunding raised over 10 million CNY in 4 hours. Things moved along nicely, and they kept improving their design and functionality, and in 2019 they launched a new model called Roborock S6.

Features of the Roborock S6

The new Roborock S6 offers a verity of features so that you can customize the Roborock to your liking.

Smart Clean Plan

Using an array of sensors and an algorithm, the Roborock can create a floor plan that is 98% effective. The algorithm ensures that not even an inch of the floor is left to be cleaned. You can also control which portion of the house you want to clean and when you want it cleaned.

Smarter Chipset

The new Roborock comes equipped with an array of sensors that help Roborock navigate, it saves it from falling or getting trapped. Also, the sensors help in the mapping of the floor so that a floor clean plan can be made. The new Roborock has a quad-core microprocessor as the brain and helps it create a floor plan and manages the robot faster than ever.

Virtual Boundaries

Using the application, you can create virtual boundaries or no-go areas for the cleaner so that your precious items don’t get damaged.it can be as small or as large as you’d like, or you can just cordon off the entire room.

The Ultimate Cleaner

Roborock S6 comes new design allows better than ever cleaning because it now has a 1500 rpm fan and advanced airflow to suck every speck of dust. Roborock also has a new and improved cleaning brush, which is 250% denser and the bristles are softer as well so that it doesn’t damage the floor. The new Roborock comes with a mop attachment, with customizable water output.

In Essence

The new Roborock is the best vacuum cleaner so far, and judging by their history, the Roborock team is not finished with it as well.
