Samsung JetBot 90 AI+.

These days, robot vacuums have to do way more than docking itself after a cleaning session to qualify as a smart appliance. At CES 2021, Samsung introduced the new JetBot 90 AI+, a robot vacuum that uses object recognition artificial intelligence technology, LiDAR, and 3D sensors to navigate its domain.

In a nutshell, the Samsung JetBot 90 AI+ uses 30W suction power and a host of high-tech accessories to make it a truly advanced smart robot vacuum. The combination of object recognition, LiDAR, and 3D sensors allow the JetBot 90 AI+ to identify not only the room's shape but also map out a safe vacuuming route. For instance, it can clean up debris on the floor while avoiding delicate household objects like vases and power cords.

Perhaps what's smartest about the vacuum is the ability to identify litter that's likely to cause a greater mess - while the JetBot 90 AI+ will avoid the problem, it also mitigates secondary contamination. Certain spills and pets come to mind.

Upon completing its task, the JetBot 90 AI+ will dock at its Clean Station, where it self-disposes all the grime collected into another bag that requires replacing once every two to three months.

Additionally, the robot vacuum has a camera accessible via the Samsung SmartThings app for homeowners to supervise the little guy doing its chores. The app also allows users to configure "no-go zones", draft up a cleaning schedule, and remote control the JetBot 90 AI+.

Not much is known about the availability and pricing of Samsung's newfangled robot vacuum outside of its H1 2021 arrival in the U.S. We'll update this piece when the JetBot 90 AI+ arrives in Singapore.
