Xiaomi, India’s number one smartphone and smart TV brand, today introduced a new innovation for Smart Homes – Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P. Equipped with Laser Distance Sensor (LDS) navigation system, 2-in-1 sweeping & mopping functionalities, smart app control, and quad-core Cortex-A7 processor, the robot can do thorough and efficient cleaning of every nook and corner of your home.
Raghu Reddy, Chief Business Officer, Xiaomi India said, “Today, technology has become an intrinsic part of every household and we are witnessing rising adoption of smart devices suitable for smart homes. Modern consumers want efficient tech-enabled devices that can help them improve their lifestyle and overall well-being.”
“Our latest offering, Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P is the perfect home assistance tool that features a 2-in-1 sweeping and mopping function allowing the robot to perform a dry and wet clean in one go. It is enabled by 12 different multi-directional sensors, a dedicated Laser Distance Sensor (LDS) navigation system, high end brushless motor and ease of control through the Mi Home App making the robot a smart, efficient and easy solution for modern households. We truly believe that this product can redefine the way consumers approach and interact with the idea of cleanliness at their homes.”
Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P is an intelligent home cleaning device equipped with 12 different multi-directional sensors and a dedicated Laser Distance Sensor (LDS) navigation system that can scan complex environments accurately and avoid obstacles during the cleaning process. Featuring the latest Laser Distance Sensor (LDS), Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P. It can scan a surrounding in 360° with an 8-meter range up to six times per second. The sampling rate is up to 2016 times per second with an accuracy deviation of less than 2%.
It supports two kinds of cleaning modes – Sweeping & Mopping mode and Sweeping only mode. The Sweeping & Mopping mode and the Sweeping Only mode use the 2-in-1 tank and a 550 ml large dust box (included with the product box) respectively. The robot can simulate manual cleaning with dual-direction repeated wiping to provide a thorough and deep clean. It has a 3200mAh lithium battery which ensures up to 110 minutes of cleaning. Its intelligent, electronically-controlled water tank comes with three gears of water for different floor materials. An outlet sensing technology makes the device immobile when it runs out of water.
The slim and compact design enables it to clean, even the narrow spaces. With the high-end brushless motor and new air duct design, the maximum suction can reach 2100Pa for effective cleaning. Powered by an anti-collision sensor, an anti-fall sensor coupled with LDS navigation based on SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) algorithm the device makes accurate navigation, crosses obstacles and senses the surrounding environment in a smart way.
The vacuum cleaner has built-in Wi-Fi capability and can connect to the Mi Home app to provide better control options. Users can view the virtual map that the vacuum “sees”. Users can also set automated cleaning schedules and give one a view of the cleaning history. Using the app it is possible to even schedule the cleaning of a particular partition at any specific time.
The quad-core Cortex-A7 processor, coupled with the dual-core Mali 400 GPU enables powerful computing performance, faster collection of data and information processing. With the help of SLAM algorithm, the robot can build maps in real time and plan more reasonable cleaning paths with the quad-core CPU.
With more than 200 million+ activated devices globally, Xiaomi continues to expand its smart home product portfolio in India with these new devices. Driven by the AIoT (AI + IoT) dual strategy, Xiaomi aims to improve the quality of life and enable healthier lifestyles for people through smart devices like the Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P.
