Consumers can experience intelligent cleaning without compromising on hygiene standards thanks to world-class object recognition technology

Samsung Electronics UK Ltd today announced the launch of its new robot vacuum cleaner, Jet Bot™AI+ in the UK. First unveiled at CES 2021, the new robot vacuum demonstrates Samsung’s leadership in offering consumers innovative and intelligent solutions to optimise home cleaning routines.

 

Jet Bot AI+ is a truly exciting launch that reflects Samsung’s ongoing dedication to creating connected appliances that deliver dynamic performance” says Dan Harvie, Vice President, Head of Home Appliances, Samsung Electronics UK Ltd. “With industry-leading object detection, AI driving, the ability to control the machine remotely using a smartphone and Live Cleaning Reports to check cleaning progress and status in real time with just a simple touch on the Smart Things App – consumers can now clean their homes more intelligently and efficiently whilst making cleaning more personalised and convenient.”

 

 

World-Class Object Recognition and AI Driving

 

Jet Bot™AI+ is the world’s first robot vacuum that comes with an active stereo-type 3D sensor, which accurately scans a wide area[1] to avoid small, hard-to-detect objects on the floor. Its 3D depth camera—equivalent to 256,000 distance sensors—can precisely detect obstacles as small[2] as 1cm. This game-changing object detection can prevent the unit from getting stuck on small obstacles in its cleaning path.

 

Jet Bot™ AI+ is also the world’s first robot vacuum to be equipped with an Intel AI solution, which powers its Jet AI Object Recognition technology. The smart solution allows the robot to navigate with more accuracy by recognising not only the objects on the floor, but also appliances and furniture[3]. The robot’s smart decision-making ensures users can have their unit clean closely around items such as children’s toys while maintaining a safe distance from delicate objects like porcelain vases[4]. It can also classify items such as pet excrements, glass cups, and electrical cables as dangerous or likely to cause secondary contamination in order to avoid them.

 

Jet Bot™ AI+ is even equipped with a LiDAR Sensor that calculates its location precisely to optimise its cleaning path by repeatedly scanning the room[5] to gather distance information. This technology works well in dark areas such as low-lit rooms or underneath furniture so the unit can cover a larger area[6] with minimal blind spots.

 

 

Powerful Clean from Start to Finish

 

Users can clean their homes much more thoroughly with advanced technologies that enable powerful cleaning. Jet Bot™AI+’s Digital Inverter Motor maximises the suction power for a deeper clean. And with its Intelligent Power Control function, the new robot vacuum can even identify the type of surface it needs to clean as well as the amount of dust that is on it. Using this information, the unit can automatically adjust its suction power for a more optimised cleaning session.

 

Jet Bot™AI+ also comes with a host of hygiene-related functionalities that enable effortless floor cleaning while ensuring that dust is securely trapped and less likely to be released back into the air. Its Advanced 5 Layered Filtration system traps 99.99%[7] of micro dust, including 0.5~4.2µm sized particles that easily escape. All parts and filters are washable, so they can be kept hygienic.

 

Jet Bot™ AI+ pairs with the Clean Station, which collects dirt and hair in a 2.5L dust bag and only needs to be replaced once every one to three months[8]. After cleaning, the robot vacuum automatically returns to the Clean Station, emptying itself[9] using Air Pulse technology complemented by a multi-layered filtration system that traps 99.999% of fine dust[10], ensuring virtually no dust is released back into the air.

 

 

Convenient Cleaning for Hassle-Free Usability

 

Users can control and monitor the Jet Bot™AI+ remotely using the SmartThings app[11] on their smartphones. The robot vacuum can be scheduled to clean selectively in either a single room or multiple rooms with the Select & Go function. The app can also be used to custom-define virtual No-Go Zones to prevent the unit from entering certain areas without the need for physical barriers.

 

The smart robot also offers Bixby voice recognition capabilities[12], meaning users can use voice commands to schedule cleaning sessions, change modes, or even ask for the latest information such as news or weather updates.

 

And with Live Cleaning Report, users can easily track the movement of their Jet Bot™ AI+ on a virtual map of their homes in real time. Users can see where it has cleaned, and even pause it or instruct it to stop cleaning. Once it has completed cleaning, users can check its cleaning history to see which areas have been cleaned, how long it took, and which path it followed.

 

Moreover, users can monitor their home remotely with the Jet Bot™AI+’s Patrol Mode, which uses the unit’s front camera to livestream video images through the SmartThings app. The Patrol Mode allows users to monitor the status of rooms they want to check while away, and even lets them enjoy this feature through scheduling. The smart unit also supports end-to-end encryption, so video clips are secure and can only be viewed by an authorised user.
