Roomba is an automated vacuum cleaning robot that was initially introduced in 2002. Roomba is powered by a rechargeable battery, and many models come with a docking station to which the Roomba should return at the end of its cleaning cycle to recharge. They work in conjunction with accessories that use both infrared and radiofrequency. In 2015, iRobot debuted the Roomba 980, an improved Roomba with a camera that maps out a room of its objects. The camera employs VSlam technology to map out a space and the things within it to clean a whole home’s floor. The Roomba 980 also has a Carpet boost, which increases suction when the Roomba sensor detects it on carpets or rugs. This Roomba was also one of the first to have Wi-Fi connectivity and app control. Customers are allowed to hack the robot on purpose since the corporation wants users to explore and improve the product. The serial API has been published, and the serial port has been made freely available, making it simple to make changes.
