Beijing-based Dreame Technology, a company specialized in smart home cleaning appliances, plans to launch this spring a new AI robot vacuum cleaner.
The Dreame Bot L10 Pro will feature precise navigation, intelligent obstacle recognition and avoidance, as well as simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) for a three-dimensional environment, the company said in a statement.
Company experts noted that the robot cleaning industry has been through rapid development since 2010 when random- and gyro-based navigation were retired after “poor cleaning performance.”
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Robotic Vacuum Cleaners estimated at US$2 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of $3. 4 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.9 percent over the period 2020-2027, according to recent independent estimates.
After that, vSLAM navigation (also referred as visual SLAM) and LiDAR SLAM navigation have been integrated to empower vacuums with more advanced cleaning competency. LiDAR SLAM navigation has been considered to outperform vSLAM navigation in terms of more accurate and faster mapping, and consistent working in the dim environment, the company said.
“We have optimized the LiDAR navigation system of Dreame Bot L10 Pro along with our self-developed SLAM algorithms to speed up its obstacle recognition after thousands of specific lab tests, so that the robot can move freely and clean efficiently,” said Kuan Shan, Head of overseas business at Dreame Technology. “It maps your house as it cleans in real time, knowing exactly where it has been and where to go.”
The new AI robot vacuum cleaner is equipped with upgraded LiDAR navigation system, self-developed SLAM algorithms and dual structured light technology which have also been widely used in self-driving industry, facial recognition area.
Dreame Bot L10 Pro’s millimeter-level detection of 360-degree view enables itself to automatically identify objects such as furniture, cable, slippers and avoid them accordingly in advance, reducing the risk of getting stuck or collided.
Also, the company noted, with multiple-floor mapping technology, the soon to be released robot can store maps of different floors so that users can personalize dynamic cleaning route for each floor and room.
Users can set specific cleaning areas and virtual no-go zones as they wish in the App. Besides that, twenty-six sets of smart sensors within the robot allows itself to perceive cliff and clean edges effectively at home, the company said.
“AI Robot vacuums are considered as one of the most popular home appliances that bring happiness and convenient lifestyles,” said Frank Wang, International Marketing Director of Dreame Technology. “The revolutionary Dreame Bot L10 Pro provides users with a more customized and automated home cleaning experience. We deeply understand users’ demand for robot vacuum cleaners and Dreame Bot L10 Pro can be your ideal home clean helper.”
