Yujin is a well known robot maker in South Korea, but it is probably not very familiar to many people outside the Korean peninsula. They have been in the robotic vacuum cleaning business for years now, and they are known from being the OEM manufacturer of the Philips HomeRun robotic vacuum cleaner. Yujin was one of the few robot makers at CES that had something new on the show. Their new model, called iClebo Arte has a lower profile (8.9 cm - 3.5 in) and the climbing capability can be adjusted up to 2 cm (0.8 in). The robot can climb 0.5 cm (0.2 in) higher obstacles than before.

iClebo Arte is one of the few robots that are able to cover the floor in a systematic manner. It uses a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) technology backed by a top mounted camera to monitor the ceiling, and a gyro sensor to track exact movements. The vacuum cleaning motor is built into the robot itself (not into the dust bin) and it has two side brushes (one on each side) to support the cleaning process. iClebo arte is supposed to be extremely energy efficient. It can go on cleaning for 3 hours on one single charge of the built in lithium-ion battery. Scheduling is the same as it was in the previous model.

I was told that since this is a mock-up model, material quality and painting will change on the final product.

Yujin iClebo Arte will be available in two color faceplate variations (black with stripes and white with pink painting like design), and it will go on sale in Korea in February, while European buyers will have to wait till April. Yujin is currently looking for distributors in the US, so the availability there is still unknown.
