Developed by Mi Ecosystem company Rockrobo, the robot features Laser Distance Sensor (LDS) and is able to scan its surroundings in 360 degrees at 1,800 times per second.

Mi Robot Vacuum will be available for 1,699 yuan (approximately Rs 17,000) on Mi.com and Mi Home stores in China starting September 6.

By employing a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm, Mi Robot Vacuum is able to map out how the home is laid out and calculate the best cleaning path, the company said in a statement.
