Robots in our Homes

Throughout the late 20th century to today, robots have seen an increasing presence in our homes. From the early days of novelty home robots like Aibo to today’s advanced cleaning robots, we’ve been searching for a way to make home life easier and free up time for other activities with the use of house robots.

The most common household robots are robotic vacuum cleaners. They’re a popular option that makes it easier to keep up with cleaning and help those who can’t do the vacuuming manually for various reasons. They can often reach places that are difficult to clean with a manual vacuum, such as underneath furniture, and can do a better job of optimising the cleaning path, reducing overlap and ensuring every bit gets done equally.

There are many models to choose from, each having their own merits – but there are a few key elements to a good robot vacuum.
