IFA 2013: LG Hom-Bot VR6370VMNC

LG Hom-Bot demonstration at IFA 2013

Smart Diagnosis was the key phrase in LG's exhibition hall at IFA this year. This not entirely new technology now start to appear in home appliances, like washing machines, and it is available in the latest iteration of the LG Hom-Bot Square. Smart Diagnosis allows the user to connect to the device from an Android smart phone in order to find out what's going on with the appliance.

In case of a robot Smart Diagnosis sends out the robot from the dock, turns on all the sensors and motors, let the robot turn and go a bit, than returns to the dock. If any of the sensors or motors fail, it will report it on the phone's screen.

Similar technology has been introduced in LG Roboking robots a few years ago, but those were announcing the problem on the robot's speaker. Connecting to the robot from the smart phone is not new either. I have seen and tried it at CES last year. Now the two technologies seems to become part of home appliances as one standard.

I personally really missed the great scheduling feature from the app that I have seen in Las Vegas last year. In that version of the remote control app I could schedule virtually unlimited number of different start times, just like we set up alarms on our smart phones. This is now simplified to a single cleaning time that can be set for once or for every day.

Other than that the new Hom-Bot Square is the same as the one we saw last year and what is now sold in several countries in Europe.
