In 2010, iRobot released a vacuum-cleaning robot, the Roomba 564 Pet Series. The robot is well suited for high traffic areas and those that are frequented by pets and other domesticated animals. It utilizes an on-board scheduling system which allows it to have as many as seven prescheduled set ups for the entire week.
The Roomba 564 has a three-stage cleaning process like most of its predecessors from the vacuum-cleaning line. It comes with the combined effectiveness of a rotating bristle brush and a beater brush that work as a dustpan and broom respectively. This technology allows the automated vacuum cleaner to pick up dirt and dust as well as pet hair and deposit them into a bin.
