One of our most often repeated complaints about floor cleaning robots is the noise they make. Today Samsung has introduced the latest addition of the Navibot line, that matches the competitor's model when it comes to noise level. The SR8895 Silencio emits only 62 dB of noise while working (the same model for the Korean market has a 50 dB noise level in the specs), and got a new mopping cloth to collect residue dust.
Samsung Navibots are among the most sophisticated vacuum cleaning robots. The Navibot Silencio is equipped with 39 sensors, including a mapping camera and some gyroscopes. The robot comes with a Virtual Guard that helps in blocking certain parts of the room from the robot. Navibot SR8895 Silencio will be available from April 2011 for around £500 ($800 or €570).

Samsung introduces a smarter way to clean with Navibot Silencio

New robotic cleaner delivers truly hassle free cleaning

Samsung Electronics Co. UK Ltd, today announced the launch of the Navibot Silencio, a robotic cleaning device that provides hands-free automated floor cleaning.

The NaviBot Silencio takes the hassle out of household cleaning by allowing users to vacuum any room in their home simply with the touch of a button. The unit comes equipped with a scheduling function, allowing users to set specific cleaning times so the device can clean while users are away from the home, relaxing and enjoying home entertainment or simply seeing to other tasks around the house. The NaviBot Silencio will drive itself around the room, removing dust and dirt in its path.

Clever Cleaning

The NaviBot Silencio’s clever cognitive mapping technology uses two CPU control chips, which serve as the “brain” behind its intelligent navigation program, allowing it to remember where it has cleaned in relation to objects and its charging base. A small integrated camera provides a Visionary Mapping System™, which takes 30 photos of a room per second to create a virtual map that assists the device in deciding the quickest and safest route to take to avoid obstacles along the way.

Unlike many other robotic cleaners that use random path navigation, on test*, the NaviBot Silencio’s cognitive mapping technology allows it to cover 90% of the living space in the same time the random path navigation covers 67%*.

Silent, speedy and smart

Faster and quieter than the original NaviBot, the new NaviBot Silencio is quieter when cleaning (62dB), meaning users can continue as normal while the robot gets the job done. Seven cleaning provide a variety of options to suit users’ needs, including a new floorcloth accessory that safely cleans all hard floor surfaces. High-grade HEPA filtration also means that exhaust air is free from dust and allergens, ideal for allergy sufferers. When cleaning is completed, simply empty the machine and the robot is ready for its next use within only two hours of charging, perfect for high-traffic areas or for those with pets and children.

Turbo-powered cleaning

The Navibot Silencio’s Turbo clean settings ensure maximum suction, perfect for picking up heavier dust and debris. Pet owners can enjoy the pet haircare system with the brush protection comb, ideal for picking up pet hair from rugs, carpets and hardwood floors.

Safe and reliable cleaning

The NaviBot Silencio has 39 sensors and a Virtual Guard™ navigation aid to keep it safe from potential problems, such as falling down the stairs or becoming tangled in cables. The Virtual Guard™ also serves as a wall that creates an invisible barrier that the robot cannot cross, meaning it can avoid open fires and wet floors with ease. Consumers do not need to worry when the NaviBot is out of sight since the robot has a line of sight back to the charge base allowing it to recharge autonomously when it is low on battery, and then resume cleaning from the last cleaned location.

“We are pleased to offer UK customers this great new product that will lessen the burden of everyday household chores,” said Joe Oram, Floorcare Product Manager, Samsung Home Appliances.

“The NaviBot Silencio demonstrates the creative genius of Samsung’s technology applied to the domestic cleaning market. With vacuuming made this easy, the NaviBot Silencio is certain to become a necessity for anyone who wants to take the chore out of household cleaning.”

Availability

Samsung’s new NaviBot Silencio will be available in the UK from Apr 2011 from all major high street and online retailers. The range is expected to sell from £499.99.

Test Notes:

* Due to the new nature of this segment, regulatory testing is not standardised in Europe, and the only test regulation is the National Korean Standard. Statistics mentioned come from tests performed to this Korean Standard. Cleaning efficiency testing area is 3m x 3m of hard wood floor. Efficiency measures the amount of dust collected versus originally introduced to test zone. Navibot Silencio on Turbo mode using Visionary Mapping repeatedly and consistently obtains 90% in the 10 minute test period. Random path collection reaches an average of 67% in this period, with some areas cleaned multiple times and gaps in the cleaning.
