Robot Vacuum Glossary

1. Robot Vacuum: A small autonomous cleaning device designed to vacuum floors and carpets.

2. LiDAR: Light Detection and Ranging technology used in robot vacuums for mapping and navigation.

3. SLAM: Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, a technique that allows a robot vacuum to create a map of its surroundings and determine its position within that map.

4. HEPA Filter: High-Efficiency Particulate Air filter used in robot vacuums to trap small particles like dust and allergens.

5. Brush Roll: Motorized brush or roller on the robot vacuum's underside that agitates and loosens dirt for effective cleaning.

6. Cliff Sensors: Sensors that prevent the robot vacuum from falling off edges or stairs.

7. Bumper Sensors: Sensors that detect obstacles and prevent the robot vacuum from colliding with them.

8. Virtual Wall: A device that emits an infrared signal to create a barrier that restricts the robot vacuum's movement in specific areas.

9. App Control: The capability to control and monitor the robot vacuum using a smartphone app.

10. Voice Control: The ability to control the robot vacuum using voice commands through a virtual assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

11. Dustbin: The container inside the robot vacuum that collects dirt and debris.

12. Docking Station: The charging station where the robot vacuum returns to recharge when its battery is low.

13. Scheduling: Setting a specific cleaning schedule for the robot vacuum to operate automatically.

14. Remote Control: A handheld remote device for manually controlling the robot vacuum's movements.

15. Edge Cleaning Mode: A cleaning mode that focuses on cleaning along the edges of walls and furniture.

16. Spot Cleaning Mode: A cleaning mode that concentrates on a specific area for intensive cleaning.

17. Battery Life: The duration the robot vacuum can operate on a single charge.

18. Sensors: Various sensors, including infrared, ultrasonic, and optical sensors, used for obstacle detection and navigation.

19. Runtime: The amount of time the robot vacuum can clean before it needs to recharge.

20. Carpet Boost: A feature that increases suction power when the robot vacuum detects it is on a carpeted surface.

21. Mapping: The process of creating a digital map of the cleaning area for efficient navigation.

22. Auto-Recharge: The capability of the robot vacuum to return to its docking station for recharging when the battery is low.

23. HEPA: High-Efficiency Particulate Air, a type of filter that removes fine particles from the air.

24. Dustbin Indicator: A visual or app notification that alerts when the robot vacuum's dustbin needs emptying.

25. Cleaning Modes: Different preset cleaning patterns and intensities offered by the robot vacuum, such as eco, turbo, or quiet mode.
