After being available abroad since the end of last year, Puresight Systems has finally brought the high-end iRobot Roomba 980 vacuuming robot in India. In an exclusive partnership with Puresight Systems, iRobot initially introduced the Roomba 600, 700 and 800 vacuuming robots along with the Brava 300 series floor mopping robot to the market.
The new Roomba 980 combines adaptive navigation with visual localisation to clean an entire level of a particular area, recharging and resuming when needed until the job is done. Using the iRobot HOME app, users can control the Roomba 980 from anywhere. The device is smart enough to detect different floor surfaces and optimize its cleaning power based on the type of floor it is currently cleaning. The company claims its Aeroforce Cleaning System with Carpet Boost provides twice the cleaning power by automatically increasing the performance of the 3rd Generation motor on carpet and rugs.
There are two iRobot experience centers and a service center in Bangalore. The company is looking to expand to other major cities within the next 12-24 months. The Roomba 980 is sold at Rs.69,999 and is available directly from their website.
