THIS is one of the best solutions that a cleanliness addict could ask for — a robot that makes floors squeaky clean.
Designed for domestic households, the Aquabot 4.0 is a high-tech gadget that comes with an advanced full wet mopping system, along with a small water reservoir for the purpose. “It also boasts of other features such as the robotic sixth sense, powerful suction and automated suction power control, UV radiation cleaning, automatic obstacle and fall detection, high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, and all-surface cleaning,” explains Anku Sharma, marketing head for Milagrow India that has developed the technology.
It also has an in-built infrared technology which helps map the room, detect obstacles in its path, in order to carry out the task. “It can also get under furniture as long as it has the ground clearance,” Sharma says. The remote-control enabled Aquabot 4.0 also has a battery backup of 120 minutes when fully charged, allowing it to cover 3,000 sq ft on a single charge. Much like your alarm clock, you set a timer on the robot and it automatically starts its job when the alarm goes off. In case of low battery, the robot goes back to its docking station to get recharged,” Sharma adds.
The technology has become an instant hit among the elderly, working couples and is also being ordered for cleaning server rooms and pharmaceuticals. It is currently available on major e-commerce sites such as Amazon and e-bay. And, Milagrow is also in talks with other e-commerce companies to make it more accessible.
