Floorbotics claims that the floorbot uses an intelligent navigation system that only cleans areas once. The robot has a 40min run time with one battery charge (4hour recharge). The floorbot has a 1.2 liter dirt container. Its diameter is 350mm and it weighs 6.9KG. It seems to use mainly IR sensors to navigate.
Floorbotics also features an industrial floor vacuum called IVAC with a bigger dirt container (4l) and a longer battery time.
The floorbot is not on sale yet. The price is supposed to be around 1,500AUD(~1,000USD).
