[Watch] Say Bye To Bai With Xiaomi’s Robotic Vacuum Cleaner For India

Tired of sweeping and moping the floor in this lockdown? Xiaomi has heard you. The Chinese tech company on Friday launched a robotic vacuum cleaner in India that does sweeping and mopping automatically without any human intervention. Confused what it is? Watch the video below:

The Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P has a two-in-one sweeping and mopping function with a Laser Detect System (LDS) for navigation. It has 12 high-precision sensors and can be controlled via the Mi Home app.

It has a Japanese brushless motor with 2,100Pa suction power. The mapping and navigation happens by the LDS-powered laser navigation and an upgraded SLAM algorithm that can scan up to eight metres along with a sampling rate of 2,016 times per second.

Being an India centric model, it has wet mopping in dual direction mimicking mopping by hand as well.

Users will have to top up water in the tank and clean the filters from time to time as indicated on the app.

The app has features such as remote control, real-time mapping, scheduled cleaning, and spot cleaning. 

The cleaner navigates, identifies, and saves the location of each room as a map on the Mi Home app after its first cleaning drive. Users can also name the rooms, divide areas, create virtual walls accordingly.

In case you are wondering, robotic vacuum cleaners will not fall off stairs or bump into chairs, they can detect it and stop there.

It is powered by a quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and has a 3,200mAh battery that gives a run time of 60-130 minutes. Like other robotic cleaners, it will automatically go and dock into the charging station when the battery is low. It resumes cleaning after it is charged or as scheduled.

It is priced at Rs 29,999 but is currently available at an introductory price of Rs 17,999. There’s no-cost EMI options starting at Rs 2,999 a month.

However, shipments will start from September 15.

This is not the first robotic vacuum cleaner in India. Eureka Forbes, Roomba and a few other makers sell similar products.
