Australian Floorbotics PTY. LTD. offers intelligent vacuum robot Floorbot similar to Electrolux Trilobite.

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).
