iRobot launches its most advanced robot vacuum and mop

iRobot Corp. is launching two new robots that work together to provide what it claims is the deepest clean possible in the home.

The Roomba s9+ robot vacuum with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal is the most intelligent, powerful, and deepest cleaning Roomba robot to date.

The Braava jet m6 robot mop tackles multiple rooms and large spaces with advanced navigation and mapping capabilities.

Together, the two robots can use Imprint Link Technology to talk to each other, automatically vacuuming and then mopping, without any effort from the user.

Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot, said: “With the launch of the Roomba s9+ and Braava jet m6, iRobot has achieved another automation milestone for home robots.

“Not only can customers forget about vacuuming for weeks at a time, but their robot vacuum and mop can now work together – automatically vacuuming then mopping – without any effort from the user.”

Mr Angle will be a keynote speaker at re:MARS, Amazon’s AI and robotics event taking place from June 4 – 7, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV, where he will present his vision for robotic automation in the home.

The Roomba s9+ and Braava jet m6 robots, as well as the forthcoming Terra robot mower, will be on display at re:MARS in the Alexa & iRobot Smart Home.
