LG’s robotic vacuum is both janitor and security guard
HOM-BOT Turbo+ is the phone controlled vacuum cleaner of your domestic dreams.
LG’s latest smart vacuum cleaner uses three camera sensors so that it can track the world around it, including the ceiling, to understand exactly where it is, where it has been and where it needs to go.
If there’s one downside to the holiday season it’s knowing that you have to clean up all that shredded wrapping paper and the fallen pines from the tree.LG’s latest robot vacuum, known as the Hom-Bot Turbo+, will have an impressive set of features, including remote camera capabilities and the ability to use your smartphone to select areas most in need of a clean.The FINANCIAL — LG Electronics (LG) will unveil an upgraded lineup of its CordZero collection at CES 2016 which will be headlined by HOM-BOT Turbo+, the industry’s first robotic vacuum cleaner equipped with augmented reality technology. We’ve seen several new units unveiled in the last few months, including the smartphone-controlled Neato Botvac Connected, the Wi-Fi-connected Roomba 980, and the bObi pet, which is great for dealing with, you guessed it, pet hair.
This exciting new user interface allows consumers to issue instructions to the vacuum cleaner by intuitively designating areas that need extra cleaning using the camera of any smartphone. The Turbo+ is powered by a dual core CPU, and uses intelligent Robonavi software to move around the room and avoid obstacles such as table legs and stairs. If you’re into your vacuum tech, LG states that its new Smart Inverter Motor is 76 percent smaller, 65 percent lighter and 24 percent more efficient on average than conventional vacuum motors. The former is designed to automatically send still images to the users’ smartphone if movement is detected when they’re not at home, while the latter transmits a real-time feed, allowing for remote control vacuuming from practically anywhere.
You might think that’s already a fairly impressive feature set, but LG has one more trick up its sleeve – an augmented reality feature called Home-Joy. The new handle enables the vacuum to be easily maneuvered in all directions without placing the weight of the vacuum hose on a user’s wrist or back. Rounding out LG’s cordless vacuum lineup is the versatile CordZero Handstick with long-lasting Dual PowerPack battery and the CordZero Bedding Cleaner with the Dual Punch feature to keep mattresses and beds free of dust mites and harmful allergens. “The powerful new technologies found on the latest LG CordZero products represent the company’s commitment to innovation and providing customers with a better life through better products,” said Jo Seong-jin, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “The smarter, more convenient lifestyle offered by LG’s CordZero collection will appeal to every consumer and contribute to elevating LG’s position as a leader in the home appliance market.”
