Robot vacuum cleaner rock S6, incredible features with incredible sensors
Since the first robot vacuum cleaner was launched to the market in 1996, robotics has been primarily afflicted by the same problems. But before we go into the issues exclusive to free vacuuming, the wish to have a little help cleaning people’s floors dates. In 1869, a charter was filed for a “sweeping machine” that was designed for cleaning rugs. Before that, people used the mop, or even more frequently, beat their carpets with unique carpet beating sticks to remove dirt and debris. Almost 130 years after the Sweeping Machine was launched, and 95 years after the first motorized vacuum cleaner was invented in 1901, robot vacuums were dreamed up.
To create an operative autonomous robot vacuum, it needs to be able to expertly and safely clean the floor without much human interference. Some new robot vacuums appeared with remote control and claimed a person to govern. Now robot vacuums are supposed to go about the home on their own, efficiently navigating around corners, objects, and pets, all while safely averting quick drops like staircases and being able to ascend and descend from minor changes in elevation. To achieve this tall order, you need many accurate sensors. As technology continues to advance, more complicated sensors have emerged to take autonomous robot vacuums to the next level.
The new Robot rock S6 introduces the future of autonomous robot vacuums, claiming a total of 14 different sensor types that help it smartly administer your home for effective cleaning action. The S6 relies on laser navigation to develop a map of your home layout in real-time. It does this by completing five 360o scans/s. As the sensors receive and differentiate distance information about the sides, the S6 plans an entire cleaning route and starts cleaning. When using the Mi Home app, a visual layout of your home will create upon the robot’s first unbeaten cleaning run. The design enables you to divide each section of your home into individual rooms, giving you the ability to direct the S6 to clean particular rooms. With its adaptive routing method of the algorithm, the S6 also calculates the best path to clean a place based on its shape and size. It cleans full rooms horizontally and can switch to a lengthways way in long corridors.
Unlike robot vacuums that rely on visual navigation, the Robot rock S6 uses laser navigation to get around. Visual navigation uses onboard cameras to maneuver, but those cameras often fail in low light conditions. Laser navigation means not only being able to operate in complete darkness, but also more precise room mapping. Because of this, the S6 can pinpoint its exact location within space, ensuring a more efficient cleaning process. Combined with the features of the accompanying app, laser navigation capabilities enable the user to create “no-go” zones, or spaces the S6 isn’t allowed to clean within the layout of your home. The S6 remembers where it’s already cleaned during each session, and its progress is track able via the app.
In addition to its laser navigation sensors, the Robot rock S6 uses cliff, bumper, wall (and other) sensors to safely clean your home. Cliff sensors keep the S6 from tumbling down the stairs or falling off a ledge. It has bumper sensors on its top cover that will prevent it from going underneath objects that are too close to the ground so it won’t get stuck. The S6’s front bumper sensor allows it to bump into objects when necessary gently, without damaging itself or your furniture. The S6 also uses its sensors to identify and adapt to its surroundings. Along walls, it keeps a distance of 10mm while spinning its side brush at a quicker rate to effectively clean edges. The S6 can detect when it’s cleaning carpet, and will automatically maximize vacuum suction to ensure a deep clean.
If the S6’s batteries run low while it’s cleaning, it will automatically return to the dock, recharge, and resume precisely where it left off. It’s features like this that make it a remarkably convenient and intelligent device.
Robot rock S6 is incredibly smart. Through the combination of laser navigation, its total of 14 different sensor types, special features like automatic recharge and resumption and others that can be accessed via the Mi Home app, the S6 is the robot vacuum cleaner you never knew you needed.
