Intelligently advanced

Robot vacuum cleaners have established themselves firmly in households, saving residents a lot of work. Following an innovative approach, the design of the Roomba i7+ extends the capabilities of such devices in terms of intelligence and automation. This appealingly designed robot offers the ability to “learn” by mapping a home’s floor plan and adapts itself accordingly in its cleaning actions. Featuring the new Imprint Smart Mapping technology, the robot can map up to ten different floor plans, remembering the rooms of each floor by name. The robot can then start to act self-sufficiently, eliminating the need for human interaction for weeks at a time. In addition, it also allows users to control which specific rooms are to be cleaned and when, as it features full connectiv-ity to Alexa-enabled devices and the Google Assistant. This allows users to order the robot to clean specific rooms by name with a voice command. Also highly convenient is the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal, which empties the contents of the vacuum’s dust bin automatically and hygienically into the Clean Base, while also serving as a charging dock. Thanks to this automatic emptying, the robot can do its job maintenance-free over a long period. With its innovative features, the Roomba i7+ makes everyday life much easier.

Statement by the Jury

Thanks to its innovative functionality and intelligent features, the Roomba i7+ can perfectly adapt to the floor plan of its environment. And when combined with the Clean Base vacuum and charging station, which automatically absorbs the collected dirt, the unit delivers a new level of self-sufficiency and hygiene. An outstanding design solution, the robot vacuum cleaner impresses with its advanced ­tech­nology and elegant, consistent use of forms.
