LG Roboking VR5901KL

LG Electronics has today announced the world's first dual-camera robotic vacuum cleaner, the Roboking VR5901KL. The new vacuum cleaner is the member of the 5th generation of Roboking robots, and with the 50 dB noise level it is the most quiet vacuum cleaning robot to date. One of the two cameras on the robot is monitoring the ceiling and the upper parts of the wall, while the other other on the bottom is registering every movement on the floor. These cameras and the 11 other built in sensors allow the robot to cover the floor in a systematic pattern, cleaning a given area 30% faster than any other robot would do.

The Roboking VR5901KL is not only smart, but quiet as well. Previous Roboking robots (and other currently available robots) operate with a noise level of about 63 dB, while the noise level of the LG Roboking VR5901KL is only 50 dB. This allows the robot to operate while people watching TV or talking on the phone.

The Roboking robot is equipped with a docking station that provides charging to the robot when needed. If the area is larger than what the robot can handle with one charge, the Roboking will go back to the spot after recharging, and finish the job. The VR5901KL is equipped with a lithium-polimer battery that will serve the robot for about five years. This is approximately 3 times longer than a traditional nickel-metal hydride battery would. The new robot uses a H10 HEPA filter to clean the airflow, and a microfiber cloth to pick up dust that remains on the floor after vacuuming.

The Roboking VR5901KL will have a one camera sibling called VR5906KL, which will only have a top camera to assist the navigation.

The robots will only be available in South Korea. The VR5901KL will be available in black for 759.000 won, while the VR5906KL will go on sale in Rustic Orange for a slightly lower amount.
