Long before the concept of smart home was put forward, people thought of various ways to extract humans from tedious cleaning. This is an important manifestation of productivity improvement since industrialization.
In 1898, the American John Thurman St. Yilus obtained the first vacuum cleaner patent in human history. At that time, Emperor Guangxu of Qing Dynasty was carrying out the vigorous Reform Movement of 1898.
In the 1910s, the British engineer Booth invented the vacuum cleaner and the Danish Fisker & Nielsen company miniaturized it. The vacuum cleaner began to enter the lives of ordinary people, and there has been no major change in more than 90 years. In 1996, nine years after the release of the first iPhone, the "Clover" sweeper made by the Swedish home appliance giant Electrolux landed on the BBC for display and was released the following year. The sweeping robot entered the public eye.
However, it was not until the subsequent entry of iRobot, Cobos, Xiaomi, Rock, Ruimi and other manufacturers that sweeping robots began to gradually become popular and became more intelligent and multifunctional.
Before 2019, the core competitiveness of sweeping robots was also reflected in the cleaning strength and intelligence; now, sweeping robots are no longer a product that only hit the wall before. Consumers are beginning to pursue more in-depth cleaning scenarios with functions that can greatly reduce manual operations. Robot during operation.
As a veteran manufacturer of vacuum cleaners, Rui Mi, recently launched a self-collecting sweeping robot on Xiaomi Youpin, which is officially called "the most advanced dust collection station."
The dust box of the traditional sweeping robot needs to be manually cleaned, and it will become dusty if it is accidentally. The principle of "self-collection" is to seamlessly connect the dust collection port and the dust collection seat, and suck the dirt in the dust box into the dust bag through the high-power internal machine. In order to avoid garbage clogging, Remi adopts a direct suction transmission method to reduce the torsion of garbage in the channel. For this purpose, it is equipped with a high-power motor of 850W, which can instantly generate 30Kpa of super suction.
It is also equipped with a 3L large-capacity dust bag.
From the data point of view, the capacity of 3L can basically accommodate 2000 square meters of floor cleaning dust, which is equivalent to 30 ordinary dust boxes, which can be filled with dust for nearly a month. The usage method of changing once a month and throwing away when used up is also The "laziness" of young people found a suitable reason.
In addition to the keyword "self-collecting dust", the innovation of Rui Mi's sweeping and dragging robot is also reflected in other places.
Cleaning power and intelligence are the two major indicators for measuring traditional sweeping robots, and Ruimi has also upgraded its hard indicators. Using the most advanced LDS4.0 laser navigation technology, through the SLAM algorithm, it can quickly scan the whole house and automatically draw a map. This is also the latest algorithm carried by Cobos' flagship model.
2700Pa super suction power, 250ml large water tank, 150 minutes long battery life, can clean a 300-square-meter house at a time. Intelligent room zoning, multi-floor map management, dynamic path planning, intelligent power-off continuous scanning, intelligent control water tank, etc., all ensure the efficient cleaning ability of the sweeping robot.
The whole body is white in appearance, and a smart LCD color screen is added to the dust collection station, which can view the dust collection status, charging status, and ozone activation status in real time. When the dust bag is nearly full, it will remind you to dump the dust.
Not only that, the Ruimi self-collecting sweeping robot is also connected to the Mijia, which can be linked with the smart door lock to automatically enter the cleaning mode when leaving the house; and when you push the door and enter, it can automatically return to charging.
At present, the sweeping robots on the market that can realize automatic dust collection are all big brands such as iRobot, Cobos, Pousanike, and the unit price of the product ranges from 4,500-9,500 yuan. The difference in core functions is not obvious.
For consumers, there is no significant difference in the use of robot cleaners of different brands. Therefore, before the emergence of breakthrough products, most consumers will not be willing to pay a premium for high-priced products.
Everything returns to ordinary consumers, and whether the pricing is reasonable is always the most important criterion. Rui Mi's price for the dust collection and sweeping robot is 2,999 yuan, and the initial price of Xiaomi Youpin is 2,799 yuan, which can be said to be quite restrained; the price of the mid-end product is a flagship with almost the most complete function of the sweeping robot.
In the layout of future smart homes, sweeping robots are still one of the cores of the entire house cleaning system. How to achieve a senseless intervention experience and efficiently complete the whole house cleaning is a problem that all manufacturers need to think about. The addition of smart home systems should not only increase the wake-up entry, but pay more attention to how to optimize the scene adaptation ability.
Returning to the original intention of the sweeper, the liberation of humans from household cleaning has not yet been fully realized, but a new direction for deeper intelligent life experience has emerged. The sweeping robot does not just liberate the "hands", but release the beauty of life.
