Electrolux has introduced a newly designed robotic vacuum, which the company said features advanced technologies and performance.
The robotic vacuum features the company’s 3D Vision technology, designed to accurately scan and map a room, detect and analyze obstacles in three dimensions— on the floor, above the floor and along edges— and decide the best cleaning path to avoid getting stuck. Powerful suction, triangular design and an external brush are said to work together to help the vacuum cleaner reach corners and small areas.
“This is no longer a gadget for early adopters but a high-performing vacuum cleaner that effortlessly cleans your home while you are away,” said Ola Nilsson, head of Electrolux business area home care and small domestic appliances. “Robotic vacuum cleaners should have tremendous market potential, but are still a small portion of vacuums sold. We intend to change that.”
In addition, the vacuum cleaner can be controlled through a mobile app, allowing consumers to set cleaning times and cycles and find information on the cleaning status.
Nilsson added, “Strategically, this is a key launch for the company that is in line with our strategy to drive profitable growth by creating best-in-class consumer experiences. It’s the first step in creating a truly responsive ecosystem of products for wellbeing in the home.”
