Although robotic vacuum cleaner debuted almost two decades ago, it is only recently that they are becoming common. From the first of these machines launched by Electrolux in the late 90s to the Roomba of the early millennium, the machines have come a long way. Consistent technological innovations for these machines have been the reason for manufacturers to add to their cleaning power and convenience features to ultimately develop highly efficient and fully automated vacuum cleaners that work on robotic technology.
Robovacs, as they are commonly known as, are primarily used for residential cleaning purposes such as pools, gutter, and floor. The superb design, component, and technology configuration of these machines allow them to perform superhuman functions, such as cleaning hard-to-reach surfaces and tight corners. Other than this, intelligent sensors, laser vision, room mapping, self-charging, and others add to the capabilities of robotic vacuum cleaners.
In the emerging economies of Asia Pacific, economic development is evident in changing living practices, which includes household management as well. In this regard, consumers exhibit a strong inclination for automated equipment, which saves on both time and human labor. For household cleaning, the use of robotic vacuum cleaners is upbeat, thereby favoring development of the robotic vacuum cleaner market.
Product manufacturers are consistently taking initiatives for product innovation, which is supported by substantial funding for R&D. With increasing count of market players, the robotic vacuum cleaner market will tread positive growth in the coming years.
Among the several robotic vacuum cleaners, Neato BotVacs, one of the newest of these machines is all-inclusive. The way this machine vacuum around the house is the real difference from its predecessor Roomba. Bigger motors and floor mapping are some of the noteworthy features of these machine. Not only does it make the whole vacuuming process efficient, it stops as soon as it starts getting low in battery.
Another stark difference is Neatos’ shape. Instead of a round shape, which is corner unfriendly, the brush sides of this machine are flat that make them ‘D’ shaped. This adds to its functionality like a regular vacuum. Some Neatos use lithium-ion batteries that have the advantage of not getting completely dead and not developing battery memory.
