Samsung has unveiled a robot vacuum that offers the best features around. What to compete with iRobot and Roborock?
When we ask to name the best robot vacuums on the market, the names iRobot naturally come to mind.pioneer and Roborock the innovative. Samsung is not immediately cited in this area. However, the JetBot 90 AI + announced at CES 2021 is very complete.
Samsung JetBot 90 AI +: LiDAR and 3D sensor
Samsung has decided to equip its intelligent robot with a LiDAR sensor, a laser that is very common in robot vacuum cleaners. This technology is similar to that used in self-driving cars or the new iPhone 12 Pro, capable of detecting distances from objects and walls, making a path that allows the robot to move around the house with precise movements.
The JetBot 90 AI + is also equipped with several real cameras to detect objects, like the Roborock S6 MaxV. This 3D sensor differentiates between objects such as a toy or the leg of a chair, detecting even small objects that might be on the floor and recognizing the floor plan of the room it enters.
In the presence of fragile objects, the JetBot 90 AI + robot vacuum would be able to get as close as possible to the object while maintaining a safe distance. Its special shape would also allow it to clean even under low furniture such as beds, sofas and coffee tables. The on-board cameras also allow you to check from your smartphone if everything is going well at home. He can thus go and check if your dog or your cat have not done yet another bullshit.
Once his cleaning session is finished, he returns independently to his base Clean Station, where it can recharge until the next cleaning program. The collected dust and debris is collected in a bag, with a self-emptying system that was designed to be replaced every two to three months, according to Samsung. This is a function that is also found on the iRobot S9 + with its base or the next iRobot Roomba i3 +, also announced during the virtual fair.
The interest of a Samsung robot vacuum cleaner is also its ability to work with other connected Samsung SmartThings devices. And the South Korean firm has even announced a partnership with Google Nest products.
We do not yet know if the Samsung JetBot 90 AI + will be marketed in France. No price was also communicated.
