Xiaomi’s smart home ecosystem has a new addition today! The Mi Robot Vacuum is a highly intelligent home cleaning device with 12 different sensors. The Laser Distance Sensor ( LDS ) scans its surroundings 360 degree, 1800 times per second, to map out the interiors of your house.The three processors track its movements in real-time, and the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping ( SLAM ) algorithm calculates the most efficient route for cleaning.
Using the Mi Home app, you can switch on and remotely control the robot, change cleaning modes and set schedules. Additionally, a powerful Nidec brushless DC motor, a main brush with adjustable height and a 5200mAh Li-ion battery for up to 2.5 hours of cleaning, attractive in price and quality, all these make it stand out of the market. Get the Mi Robot Vacuum and dirt will not stand a chance.

Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum overview
This is a very intelligent and powerful automatic vacuum. This robotic cleaner automatically maps out the area and cleans homes in an extremely “smart and efficient” way, as the manufacturer claims. It uses a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm to map out how the home is laid out and calculates the best sweeping path.
When cleaning a room with a simple cleaner we know where we have cleaned and don’t pass there more than one time. The same should be implemented with the robotic cleaners, otherwise they will clean the same area for 3-5 times, while some other areas will be ignored. Thus, the term we often come up, ‘random cleaning path’ can cause longer cleaning time, more electricity consumption and many more.
The sensors emit laser light and it is able to calculate the travel time due to a reflected light. Multiple sensors map the layout and plan a path. When it runs out of energy it goes back to the charger autonomously.
The Xiaomi vacuum cleaner comes with a brushless DC motor that is a head higher than other motors in terms of speed and performance, as it delivers up to 1800Pa air pressure. There is a real difference between this model and the iRobot’s Roomba 980, as the latter comes with 1,670 Pa.
Thanks to innovative technologies, new brushless motors and many more the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum works more effectively. But there is another feature making it more powerful. I am talking about the 5,200mAh 14.4V lithium-ion battery that is enough to clean up to 250 square meter area in about 2.5 hours on a single charge. It is provided by LG and Panasonic meaning we can easily rely on this info. Of course, if there is more work to be done it will take its way back to the charging dock. Xiaomi has made a step forward on competitors that usually has a 2-3000mAh battery, and the battery can become the next selling point of the Mi Robot Vacuum.
The in-house developed LDS works similar to laser guiding system on self-driving cars with three dedicated processors. Allwinner ARM Cortex quad-core, STMicroelectronics ARM Cortex co-processor and Texas Instruments LDS image processor for real-time mapping and positioning of the robot. The robot uses Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) to calculate the path for cleaning the area optimally. The robot can be controlled and monitored to check the cleaning progress, path and set cleaning schedules, remotely using the Mi Home app.

Mi Home App
Like other Mi Ecosystem products this cleaner comes with Mi Home app pre-installed. Thus users can control the device remotely: power on/off; check the vacuum’s status via WiFi; get a live tracking; switch between three modes (normal, quiet and active); set schedules for automatic cleaning and many more. All these operations can be displayed on your mobile handset.
Thanks to the Mi Home app you can set regular cleaning schedules for daily cleanings. It’s very simple to use, as you are able to display the real-time cleaning map, path and position on your handset. You can also switch between cleaning modes (quiet, standard and active) with simple taps.
Once you launch the Mi Home app you will be asked to connect the device to WiFi choosing the connection and entering the password. Thus thanks to this app the connection process is very easy. Once you accessed the cleaner you will see the position of the cleaner, cleaning area, cleaning time info, and a few other useful info such as the speed adjustment. You can even set up the cleaner to report you once the process is over.
