Neato Robotics XV-11 Robot Vacuum Revealed Neato Vacuum Uses Laser Guided Technology To Compete With Roomba

Neato Robotics has revealed the XV-11 Robot Vacuum, a laser-guided
vacuum cleaner designed for independent, obstacle-conscious operation.ย
The Neato XV-11 Robot Vacuum takes advantage of a small form factor to
not only clean a household in a low-profile, bu
t fit under couches and beds to provide a cleaner environment.
Neato Robotic's XV-11 vacuum is slated to compete directly with the
Roomba robot vacuum, but does so with different navigation and cleaning
technology.ย The Neato XV-11 uses a laser vision system that provides a
360-degree view of a room, doorways, furniture and other obstacles in
its path.ย This laser system allows the Neato Robotics XV-11 vacuum to
approach, but not touch its obstacles while maintaining a complete
cleaning radius.ย Also, the cornered edges of the Neato XV-11 robot
allow it to clean corners, whereas the rounded Roomba was unable to fit.
Under the Neato XV-11's possibly Autobot-symbol-inspired design is a
centrifugal compression impeller system that sucks up dust and
debris.ย This is also a departure from the Roomba standard, as the
Roomba used a sweeper system that consumed more energy than this new
Neato Robotics counterpart.ย While an A/B comparison of the energy
usage and effectiveness of the Roomba and the Neato Robotics XV-11 Robot
Vacuum has not been conducted, we'll have to take Neato's word on that
until its February release.ย Upon its release, it will be for sale on
Neato's website and select retail locations for $399.
