Editor's Notes

June 14, 2019:

These devices are all relatively compact in size, lightweight, and designed to effortlessly maneuver themselves around obstacles without falling down the stairs or bumping into your pets. I wanted to make sure that our choices are packed with useful features and that they're easy to program.

Added the IRobot Roomba S9+ for its imprint mapping technology and also due to the fact that it can empty the dust bin into the companion dirt disposal unit automatically when returning to its charging station. This is something that very few other robot vacs currently do. I included the Roborock E35 for its dual gyroscopes, built-in mopping function, and network of motion tracking sensors for precise coverage paths. The 3-stage cleaning system on the IRobot Roomba 890 allows it to deliver nearly 5 times the suction power as other models in its class. Its vacuuming schedules are also super-easy to program using the companion mobile app. This is also one of our choices that is compatible with Amazon Alexa, which can be a great feature for particularly busy households. While the Neato Botvac is one of the more expensive options in our list, its laser mapping technology ensures precise cleaning paths, which helps to maximize operating efficiency by avoiding random movements. I also thought it's D-shaped design was a practical benefit for sucking up pet hair in corners or along edges. The CycloneForce technology on the Samsung Powerbot quickly separates dirt and debris, which helps to prevent unnecessary clogging and maintain a consistent operating performance. The Aiper Automatic uses the concept of virtual boundaries to avoid collisions with objects or drop-offs from the tops of staircases. Also included the Bagotte BG600 for its low-noise operation and ability to deep clean thick carpets. Finally, added the Shark Ion for its high-tensile, self-cleaning helical bristles and several feet of boundary strips.
