What makes this product smart ?
The vacuum-mop comes with a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor. It is powered by an anti-collision sensor, an anti-fall sensor coupled with LDS navigation based on SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) algorithm.
Mi’s Robot Vacuum-Mop features a Laser Distance Sensor (LDS). It can perform a 360° scan of its surrounding with an 8-meter range up to six times per second. The accuracy deviation rate of the device is less than 2 per cent.
The device has a 3200mAh lithium battery that enables it to perform up to 110 minutes of cleaning. It has an electronically-controlled water tank that comes with three gears of water for different floor materials. The device will become immobile when it runs out of water owing to its outlet sensing technology. The Mi Robot Vacuum Mop-P has a brushless motor. The cleaner has a laser navigation system mounted on its top that can scan the surrounding in real-time and create a virtual map of the room. This map will include all obstacles, including chairs, beds, furniture and even a box. The cleaner will create its virtual path for cleaning excluding the obstacles. It can also avoid stairs and edges using its wide array of sensors.
The vacuum mop supports two cleaning modes- Sweeping & Mopping mode and Sweeping only mode. The Sweeping & Mopping mode and the Sweeping Only mode use the 2-in-1 tank and a 550 ml large dust box that comes with the product. The robot can clean surfaces similar to manual cleaning with dual-direction repeated wiping to provide a “thorough and deep clean.”
The Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P has built-in Wi-Fi capability. Users can enable smart control for the cleaning device by connecting it to the Mi Home app. They can view the virtual map that the vacuum creates with the help of Laser Distance Sensor (LDS) through the app. Users can also schedule the cleaning of a particular partition at a specific time through the app.
