X

Chinese-based Ecovacs has sought to make its robotic cleaners even smarter, debuting a new artificial intelligence software upgrade, which will help recognise and avoid objects.

Ecovacs’ new AI-enabled upgrade – named ‘AIVI (Artificial Intelligence and Visual Interpretation) – will introduce object recognition and spatial recognition to the company’s stable of robotic cleaners.

Working with Ecovacs’ existing Smart Navi technology, robots will now better adapt to a user’s home, providing a more optimised floor cleaning route.

“We expect this innovation will set a new standard for floor cleaning robots by truly taking the hassle out of floor cleaning for users,” claims David Qian Ecovacs Robotics Board Deputy Chairman and President of International Business Unit.

Powered by AI, Ecovacs’ robots will now harness deep learning capabilities to avoid household items that typically obstruct conventional floor cleaning robots – e.g. cables, shoes, slippers, dustbins, doorsills and rugs.

The innovation claims to reduce the need for objects to be manually removed from floors prior to robovac use.

Ecovacs claims its AI technology is only used to match a robot’s surroundings with identified obstacles, with no images sent to the company or third parties.
