Let's talk about the characteristics and features of robot vacuum cleaners with mopping, which you should pay attention to when choosing.Complexity of the navigation system
The correctness of the movement of the device in the apartment depends on it. The following technologies and devices are used in the navigation systems of robot vacuum cleaners:
- Algorithmization of movement. Standard solutions include zigzags, spiral, perimeter and serpentine.
- Composition of navigation system. The simplest work on infrared sensors (contact, height difference). The navigation systems of advanced robotic vacuum cleaners with wet cleaning include gyroscopes, cameras and laser scanners.
- Room mapping. Robots equipped with cameras and laser scanners have this function. Such assistants move as correctly as possible.
In addition, navigation systems can include restrictive magnetic tapes and motion coordinators. Their use allows you to prohibit the robot vacuum cleaner to clean certain areas.Operating time and cleaning area
Each robot vacuum cleaner for dry and wet cleaning these characteristics are individual. This is due to the fact that the rate of battery discharge depends on its capacity, weight and size of the robot, suction power, the functionality of the device and other parameters.
The main rule of choosing a robot vacuum cleaner for wet cleaning - the larger the area of the apartment, the greater the capacity of the battery should have to ensure the possibility of cleaning the room for 1 cycle of work.
By the way, you can calculate the approximate cleaning area yourself. To do this, you need to subtract 10 from the battery life (in minutes). For example, if the robot can clean an apartment for 120 minutes, it can clean up to 110 m2 of area.
