A Roomba Robot is an robotic household vacuum cleaner sold by iRobot.



    • Roomba is a series of autonomous robotic vacuum cleaners sold by iRobot.[1] Under normal house conditions, it is able to autonomously vacuum the floor while navigating a living space and avoiding obstacles.[1]

      Roomba was introduced in 2002.[2] As of February 2011, over 6 million units have been sold worldwide.[3] It features a set of basic sensors that help with tasks such as changing direction upon impact with obstacles, detecting dirty spots on the floor, and preventing the Roomba from falling down stairs. It uses two independently operating wheels to allow for 360 degree turns. Additionally, it can be adapted to perform other more "creative" tasks via an embedded computer in conjunction with the Roomba Open Interface.
