At CES last week LG debuted its new HOM-BOT, the latest in robotic vacuuming.
The HOM-BOT features enhanced navigation technology that relies on cameras and sensors to effectively map a room and avoid potential obstacles. An upper camera focuses on the ceiling, taking up to 30 images per second for mapping data. IR sensors and an optical flow sensor work to detect obstacles for "collision-free operation."
If you're one who hates to clean, it might be worth taking a closer look at the 3.5-inch high HOM-BOT, can go quietly about its business while you tend to the home's other important chores. Just listen for the HOM-BOT's voice alert system when the cleaning job is done or the batteries are dying.
