iRobot Corp., a leading supplier of robotic floor cleaners, today announced two new additions to its line: the iRobot Scooba 230– a floor washing robot small enough to clean in tight spaces and around bathroom fixtures– and the iRobot Roomba 700 Series, what the company is calling, “the smartest and most effective” Roomba vacuum cleaning robots to date.
Both will debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 6.
“These new robots represent our ongoing commitment to developing innovative products that make a difference in people’s lives,” said Jeff Beck, president of iRobot’s Home Robots division. “While Roomba is already the world’s best-selling vacuum cleaning robot, we continue to make improvements to ensure it is the best on the market and stays at the head of the pack. With the compact Scooba 230, we focused on reducing size without compromising effectiveness and navigability. The launch of Scooba 230 has effectively made one of people’s least favorite household chores, cleaning the bathroom, a whole lot easier.”
iRobot Scooba 230 and iRobot Roomba 700 Series use iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology. The system of software and sensors monitors the environment 64 times per second, using dozens of behaviors to ensure the entire floor is thoroughly cleaned. The dirt sensitive technology ensures thorough coverage, including under and around furniture, and multiple passes over the areas that need it most.
