Navibot VCR8855 by Samsung (2010)
Navibot VCR8855 is a vacuum cleaner robot developed by Samsung. Equipped with stunning features, Samsung’s Navibot is an innovative robot that thoroughly cleans your home with almost no human assistance. It uses its Visionary Mapping System in determining the best way to clean a particular area of your home or the whole house itself.
Samsung VCR has a unique way of knowing where its current position is and where it’s headed. It is capable of finding the recharging station dock each time it starts running low on power. The robot’s recharging time is much faster than other vacuum cleaners. It only takes 2 hours to fully charge. After recharging, the Navibot goes back to the precise spot it stopped and resumes cleaning.
With 38 sensors, Navibot VCR can detect obstacles and protect itself as well as the things around it. It comes in different modes: Auto, Manual, Max, Spot and Edge. It even has two convenient features, the Delay Start Mode and the Virtual Guard that make scheduled cleaning much easier. The former allows the user to schedule the cleaning operations of the robot while the latter allows one to limit the cleaning area of the robot to a particular location with the use of a virtual fence.
