The Roomba® 980 is iRobot’s most capable and best cleaning robotic vacuum to date. It uses groundbreaking, proprietary visual simultaneous localization and mapping (vSLAM) technology for the first time in a consumer product, which allows it to build a map of its environment as it cleans, keeping track of its location until it has cleaned an entire level of the home – up to 2000sq ft – recharging and resuming until cleaning is done. The Aeroforce™ Cleaning System with Carpet Boost also helps the Roomba 980 to optimize its cleaning performance by providing twice the power when it detects carpeted floors. With an all new iRobot HOME App, users can now connect their Roomba to their Wi-Fi network and direct cleanings remotely from anywhere, at any time. This includes scheduling cleanings ahead of time, choosing custom cleaning preferences, and seeing the status of cleaning jobs. The Roomba 980 also has a low-profile design that allows it to clean under most furniture, capturing dirt that ordinary vacuums miss. Additionally, the brushless extractors prevent the tangles of hair and debris that are a common nuisance for most vacuums.
