As insulting as it may be for robots, we’ve always wanted a robot that does the cleaning for us. How can we not? After all, cleaning takes us away from playing with our kids, hanging out with friends, and relaxing as a family. However, even though it has been more than a decade since robotic vacuum cleaners were introduced, cleaning still remains a chore that we wish we could avoid.


At IFA 2014, Samsung’s latest robot vacuum machine, VR9000, was introduced. And with the hope of eliminating the negative connotation of cleaning, we would like to tell you why this is something you want to take a look at.



Stereotype 1. Robot Vacuum Cleaners are weak.


Compared to conventional vacuum cleaners, robotic vacuums are smaller, so it is understandable for people to think that Robotic vacuums have less suction power. But looks can be deceiving. Powerbot VR9000 sucks away that entire stereotype. Its suction power is enhanced up to 60 times more than the conventional robot cleaners! So from dog hair to dust balls, expect your floor to be swept clean. Stereotype demolished.



Stereotype 2. Robot Vacuum Cleaners are slow.


Because of their relatively small size, it takes more time for them to clean. However, the VR9000 features an enlarged 300mm-wide brush, so it covers more area in one sweep, reducing the overall time of its operation.



Stereotype 3. Robot Vacuum Cleaners are dumb.


For something that is called ‘robot’, people tend to think less of the technological advancement of the robot vacuums. If you think that way, it is cool; you are entitled to your opinion.




But let the Powerbot VR9000 tell you about some of its technology. First of all, it utilizes this tech called FullView Sensor, which allows the VR9000 to recognize and comprehend the surroundings more quickly with the onboard camera and CPU chips. Therefore, it doesn’t get stuck in the corner. Actually, it also utilizes various sensors to locate even very narrow or small obstacles, so it cleans the area more efficiently.



Stereotype 4. Robot Vacuum Cleaners can’t move.


It has been said that robot vacuum cleaners are not effective because they get stuck everywhere.  However, “Easy Pass” wheels were added to the wings of the Powerbot VR9000.  These allow for more  leverage to maneuver over obstacles on the floor, and the Powerbot VR9000 is able to overcome hurdles. This means it can operate on more than just 2 dimensional surfaces; like the lip of the door or over wires.



Obviously, VR9000 cannot complete all the chores you need to do around your house. However, it sure can reduce the amount of time and effort you spend on them, and allow you to enjoy some much-deserved “me time”. The exhibition visitors at IFA 2014 have seen what the VR9000 can do and have been impressed. The Powerbot VR9000 has literally been cleaning the floor, quietly and effectively.
