Bangalore-based distributor Puresight Systems in partnership with iRobot brings a new range of home robots to India. The line-up consists of two new products namely, Roomba 980 robot vacuum and iRobot Braava mopping robot.

The Roomba 980 robot vacuum through the use of iAdapt 2.0 Responsive Navigation, navigates an entire level of your home, keeping track of its location and recharging as needed until the job is done. The AeroForce Cleaning System with Carpet Boost automatically increases power on carpets where it is needed most. With the iRobot Home app, users can clean and schedule the device on the go. According the company, the Roomba 980 robot vacuum captures 99 per cent of allergens, pollen and particles as small as 10 microns.

The iRobot Braava mopping robot on the other hand, makes use of either dry or damp cloths to clean up the dirt, the grime, the dust and the smudges at the press of a button. One simply needs to attach a cloth, put the robot down and press a button. The mopping robot through the use of advanced robotic technology will track where it has been and where it needs to go. The robot works on hard-surface floors, including tile, vinyl, hardwood and laminate.

The Braava cleans multiple rooms with its iAdapt 2.0 navigation system using NorthStar cubes, including under furniture while avoiding stairs and other drop-offs. The Turbo Charge Cradle provides sleek, compact storage and charges Braava in just 2 hours.

iRobot was founded in 1990 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology roboticists with the vision of making practical robots a reality.
