Robot vacuum cleaner uses AI to avoid dog waste

iRobot has just introduced a new model of its vaccum cleaner robot Roomba, which is destined to become a practical device for those who have pets.

This is Roomba j7 +, the new high-end model that has a navigation function with intelligent vision.

This allows you to avoid obstacles and items that can cause accidents such as cables, or awkward situations such as debris from animals who live in the home.

How does it work?

The device uses the Precision Vision navigation feature to help you search for objects on the ground. There he makes the determination to approach or avoid them and surround them. In this way, it is able to absorb objects such as headphones and other cables to avoid tangling.

This new function was created after the company trained its algorithm of artificial intelligence (AI) with a library composed of more than a million images that help to improve the tool.


Also, by avoiding pet excrement, the robot vacuum cleaner does not end up spreading the waste throughout the room, as happened with some previous versions, according to the criticisms made by some users.

In this new robot vacuum cleaner, the camera is in the front sector and not in the upper part as it was in the other models.

Another element that this device can avoid with shoes, laces, socks and toys, among others.

The self-emptying station has also undergone a new design and its position has been changed to horizontal to make it more practical and can be stored under furniture.
