The Hom-Bot Turbo+ is the latest robotic vacuum cleaner from LG set to be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 at the beginning of January. The vacuum cleaner brings along some exciting new capabilities and features, including augmented reality and a home security function. It is designed to make home cleaning smarter.
Navigation and Power
The effectiveness of a robotic vacuum cleaner depends on its navigation system and available power. LG Hom-Bot Turbo+ is decked out for intelligent navigation with Robonavi software system, which enables it to avoid obstacles such as stairs and table legs while on duty.
With support provided by dual CPUs, the navigation software is able to make super-fast decisions on what direction the robot vacuum cleaner should go. LG fits the Hom-Bot Turbo+ with a Smart Inverter Motor and will provide a 10-year warranty to give buyers peace of mind on their purchase.
Triple Eye Camera
LG Hom-Bot Turbo+ is enabled to see its surroundings with an impressive Triple Eye Camera setup, featuring three camera sensors. The cameras can not only give front, back and side views, but also a view of the ceiling.
This way, the vacuum cleaner is able to detect areas that have been cleaned and those in need of attention. So you need not worry about some parts being left unclean or about the robotic cleaner hitting hard objects.
LG claims the Hom-Bot Turbo+ is the first robotic vacuum cleaner to come with augmented reality technology. It is used in a smart feature which is called Home-Joy. With this feature, users are able to direct the vacuum cleaner to spots in need of extra cleaning using their smartphones.
All a user needs to do to pass this instruction is to tap the portion(s) of the room in an image and the Hom-Bot Turbo+ heads there for cleaning.
LG Hom-Bot Turbo+ offers two other smart features that also use the three camera sensors provided. One of this is Home-View, a feature which transmits real-time feed to your smartphone and enables you give remote instruction to the vacuum cleaner to clean the home from wherever you may be.
The second, Home-Guard, sends images of happenings in your home whenever the vacuum cleaner senses movement.
