This robotic cleaner automatically maps out the area and cleans homes in an extremely ‘smart and efficient’ way. It uses a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm to map out the home layout and calculates the best sweeping path. However, it also supports Mi Home APP. This means users can control it remotely as well as set regular cleaning schedules for daily cleanings.
The Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner comes with a Laser Distance Sensor (LDS) accompanied with 11 other sensors. They are controlled by three dedicated processors (a quad-core processor from Allwinner, a STMicroelectronics ARM processor, and a Texas Instruments LDS image processor). These processors get data from those 12 sensors and calculate the cleaning path.
The company has cooperated with a Japanese NIDEC that is known as the world’s No.1 comprehensive motor manufacturer. The Xiaomi mi Robot Vacuum cleaner comes with a brushless DC motor that delivers up to 1800Pa air pressure. It comes with a rubber and fiber combo brush structure. Thus it is capable of cleaning hard floors as well as soft carpets made of different materials. Finally, there is a 5,200mAh 14.4V lithium-ion battery that is enough to clean up to 250 square meter area in about 2.5 hours on a single charge.
