History of iRobot®
Founded in 1990 by roboticists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, iRobot is a leading innovator in the world of practical robots. Having developed robots for the home, military and defense, and remote workforce, iRobot has demonstrated the significant impacts that robots can have on the world, from exploring outer space to disposing of bombs. For the everyday consumer, iRobot’s robots take the dirty work out of household cleaning, doing the vacuuming, mopping, and more, giving you more time to focus on activities you really enjoy.
Roomba®: Effortless Vacuuming
Vacuuming is no longer a chore when you have the iRobot Roomba®. At the press of a button, this intelligent robot can vacuum your carpets and floors, removing dirt, dust, pet hair, and other debris. Featuring iAdapt® technology, the Roomba vacuum cleans the way you do. It navigates through rooms intuitively, manoeuvres around furniture and obstacles, and even cleans up against walls to ensure the whole room is covered. Using optical and acoustic sensors, the iRobot vacuum detects dirt and puts added effort into cleaning areas that need extra attention, just like you would. And although Roomba is battery powered, you don’t have to worry about recharging it. After it’s done vacuuming, Roomba diligently returns to its home base to rest and recharge itself for its next cleaning.
Scooba®: Intelligent Cleaning Power
With iRobot ScoobaTM, you no longer have to wring out dirty mops or strain your back scrubbing the floor. This floor-washing robot effectively cleans floors using a patented cleaning system that eliminates up to 98% of common household bacteria. Scooba is safe to use on a variety of hard floor surfaces by keeping the dirty water separated so your floors get a true clean. Plus, Scooba moves intelligently around furniture and along walls and bath fixtures, effectively cleaning grime in even the hardest-to-reach places.
BraavaTM: Mopping Made Easy
Designed to mop floors quickly and efficiently, the iRobot Braava™ systematically covers an entire floor in one pass. Simply attach a cleaning cloth, choose the dry mop or damp mop function, and let Braava do the work. Braava’s innovative robotic technology tracks where it’s been and what area is left to complete. And once your floor is clean, dispose of the cleaning cloth or wash the included microfiber cloth for the next cleaning session.
Changing Lives with Robots
While robots haven’t taken over the world yet, they’ve taken large steps in making lives easier. iRobot’s home-cleaning robots have transformed the notion of cleaning, turning tiresome chores such as vacuuming and mopping into effortless actions. With a focus on research and development, iRobot continues to introduce its ground-breaking robots to new markets, such as hospitals, businesses and academic institutions, all in an effort to improve quality of life and safety standards across the globe.
