The new iRobot Roomba 530 has improved navigation, anti-tangle technology, cleaning of edges and corners, larger dustbin and improved filtration of dust and allergens. It returns to its Home Base to recharge between cleanings.
This roomba model is much more reliable than the older models or its competitors. It should last up to 5 years of daily use.
The Roomba 530 features a
technology that ensures that a Roomba does not leave the room. It also helps Roomba 530 to understand the size of a room. It uses IR to communicate with the robot.
The bottom of Roomba 560 is now
. This makes the new Roomba easy to clean and almost everything is user replaceable. iRobot claims that this, along with better seals that keep out grit, will extend the life of the robotic vacuum five-fold. The modular components also make the Roomba more hackable than before.
The iRobot Roomba 530 drives around the house sensing dirt and vacuuming the floor for about 45 minutes per room. According to manufacturer, all models of the Roomba 500 series have a larger chamber for dirt, a more powerful motor and the vacuum power has been increased by 100 percent.
Improved navigation, wall following, and coverage patterns provide the most efficient cleaning of the entire room, along kickboards, cabinet edges, in corners, under and around furniture.
An array of IR sensors running along the front bumper and the optimized software helps Roomba to slow down a bit before impact, so it does not bump into your furniture anymore.
The brushes on the underside were re-designed to shoot larger chunks of debris into the bin. The suspension on the wheels was improved to give greater mobility over thresholds. The new Roomba also works on big thick carpets.
The Roomba 500 series finally overcomes the tangle problem by stalling the brushes momentarily whenever a tassel is encountered, then moving away. However, this feature is not perfect. Smaller cords will still get munched.
When its battery is running low, or when the cleaning is complete, Roomba automatically returns to the self-charging
to dock and recharge.
