Roomba® robot vacuums are highly efficient, only drawing power when they’re charging in docks and to ensure uninterrupted connectivity with home WiFi systems. In fact, even if left plugged in all day, Roomba® consumes less energy than the typical upright vacuum cleaner. Roomba® is fully compliant with the U.S. Department of Energy, EU and other major regional regulations for power consumption and energy efficiency.
Today’s Roomba® i3 Series, i7 Series and s9 Series as well as the Braava® m6 mop are equipped with vSLAM® (Vision Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) technology, which make them far more efficient when cleaning than their counterparts using other sensor-based navigation techniques. vSLAM-based Roomba® robot vacuums calculate their relative position in a room in real time, which enables them to create a digital map of the area that they are cleaning while also vacuuming in straight lines, thereby increasing coverage efficiency. These robot vacuums and mops also know when they’re running low on power and will return to the docking station to recharge.
