Milagrow HumanTech has launched RedHawk, BlackCat and Robocop, three home cleaning robots to keep homes free from germs and dust. The robots are equipped to clean all types of surfaces from marble and carpets to wood. They can re-charge themselves in between cleaning cycles. The robots are endowed with obstacle and stair detection intelligence, which allows them to manoeuvre around objects. The stair detection feature is based on the infrared principle and ensures that the robots do not fall off stairs, balconies or tables. They can be auto-scheduled to clean at a desired date and time in the future. These cleaners come packed with an in-built UV ray lamp, which when turned on emits UV rays that break the DNA of virus and bacteria thus destroying germs. When the battery goes below 15 per cent level, the robots automatically go back to their charging dock, charge themselves and resume cleaning. They have six cleaning modes such as spot, zigzag and wall-to-wall cleaning and can navigate under furniture and other hard to reach places. The robots can be programmed to not venture into certain spaces such as a small child’s play area. The dirt detection capability measures the amount of dirt and cleans accordingly.
Prices: Robocop INR9,990, BlackCat INR15,990, and RedHawk INR16,990.
