New ECOVACS cleaning robots DEEBOT OZMO 960 opt AIVI and the combination of scrubbing and vacuuming

ByLinky Johnson 2019-06-13 2184

Cleaning robots are an increasingly common element in our homes. We have seen models of all types and prices in an increasingly extensive catalogue that requires some study before we get one of these products, given the variety of functions they can offer.


With numerous manufacturers in the market, ECOVACS has presented its new products for the cleaning of the home and between the novelties they emphasize on the one hand the incorporation of the term increasingly used "Artificial Intelligence" and on the other hand the combination of two functions in a single one as it is the sweeping and the scrubbing.

The IA arrives to the cleaning of the home

The new DEEBOT OZMO 960 is the model in which the firm has put all its know-how and experience in the field of home cleaning. A cleaning robot in which the adoption of a technology called AIVI stands out, a symbiosis of Artificial Intelligence and robotics to improve the final result in the cleaning of the home.

AIVI is a technology that will gradually arrive in the new robots that launch the brand to market. A system by which these can identify objects and avoid them, avoiding entanglements in cables or blockages. They combine Artificial Intelligence and Visual Interpretation (AIVI) in a way that allows DEEBOT not only to recognize their environment to create a cleaning plan, but also to detect and recognize objects that may hinder their cleaning trajectory, such as cables or socks, and avoid them efficiently.

In addition, this model has served as a showcase to learn about its new obstacle recognition system thanks to the combination of cameras and laser. In this way it can recognize around 500 objects, although the brand hopes that with successive software updates can expand the catalog with more and more foreign objects and obstacles. And at this point a nuance, because for the most suspicious from the brand warn that the images are not stored or transferred to third parties.

Voice control and more

On the other hand, they have demonstrated their application, ECOVACS Home, especially in an era in which voice control seems to be the norm. The reason is that thanks to this application and once installed on the smartphone, all robots will become compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, with the option that in the future they will be compatible with Siri and Apple HomeKit.

To make it possible it will be necessary to update the robot via OTA, something very easy to do, as a large majority of the models have the Navi 3.0 system (the oldest Navi 2.0) navigation and laser mapping that facilitates the update to be connected to the Wi-Fi network at home.

In addition, the DEEBOT OZMO 960 has been a very complete test bench, as we have seen how the company has unified the functions of vacuuming and scrubbing in a single action. Two functions that until now required a separate process and that in this model appear together. We still need to know more details about its operation, but in principle time saving is important.

Price and availability

And if the DEEBOT OZMO 960 has caught your attention, don't rush to the store to buy it. This is a model still in development that does not have a specific date on which to reach the market.
