The Evolution of Robot Vacuum Cleaners! Leave a comment


Who would’ve thought we could have a robot vacuum cleaner to take care of all that mess?
I know, right? Let’s take a peek and unfold the mystery!

Robot vacuum cleaner, thanks to James Dyson becoming a reality, began in 1996. Electrolux, the well-known Swedish Appliance Manufacturer, quickly saw potential in this new invention and purchased it from Dyson. And soon after, we had the Trilobite, the world’s first fully functioning robot vacuum cleaner. Because of its novelty, it appeared on BBC’s science TV program, Tomorrow’s World.

Electrolux Robot Vacuum Cleaner

The significant milestone in Robovac came from Britain when Dyson made their variant known DC06 in 2001. Due to its high cost, this model never made it to the marketplace. However, it wasn’t going to be a long wait for the World’s First Commercially Viable Robotic Vacuum Cleaner.

A year later, iRobot, an American Advanced Technology Company, launched the Roomba. By the end of that year, the iRobot Roomba’s popularity proved to be so massive that 50000 units were produced. To date, Roomba has over 40 models in various price ranges. In addition to that, Neato Robotics made an XV-11 Robotic Vacuum that uses laser-vision.

The next breakthrough in Robotic Technology came from Dyson in 2014. The company produced a Robovac with a 360-degree camera mounted on it. The aim of the design here was to improve the robot’s navigational ability to have much more suction power than any previous robotic vacuum cleaners. Since then, all manufacturers have worked to enhance their robots.

That Love-Hate Relationship Pets Have With Robot Vacuum Cleaners

Robotic vacuum cleaners can now scan a room and work out the best cleaning path while avoiding obstacles. This is all made possible thanks to technological advancements and improved artificial intelligence.

How does AI help improve the robot vacuum cleaners? Thanks to AI, the robots now have long-term memories. They can continuously update their movements during every clean and find better ways to improve their cleaning path. The suction power of these robots has also come a long way because of longer-lasting lithium-ion batteries and super-efficient brushless electric motors. They also work for more extended periods before recharging the battery.

Robot vacuum cleaners has come a long way in the last two decades. It makes you wonder what’s in store for us in the future as AI and technology keep improving faster rapidly.

FAQs

Ever wished you could just put your feet up and

  1. have high quality, brand name home appliances
  2. at the best possible prices
  3. delivered to your doorstep
  4. with good, old fashioned Aussie service and values

at just a few mouse clicks? With none of the BS – i.e. inflated prices, lousy communication, creepy salespeople etc. – in between?

That’s who The CBF Store are! A one stop, online home appliance store for good folks like yourself who know exactly what you want and how you want it. Our prices speak for themselves as we do our very best to ensure affordability and accessibility to every Australian household.

Heck if you find the very same thing priced better (or any part of our service lacking), we’d actually be upset and would love to know how we could do better!

The CBF Store is a Melbourne based company with access to some of Australia’s largest home appliance distributors/importers and extensive freight networks across all states.

We can be contacted via phone, email, the contact form further below or even via our live chat function if you fancy a yarn about an appliance or just the questionable Melbourne weather.

The short answer – no. In order for us to provide you with what we believe is the best pricing on brand name home appliances in Australia, we knew we had to do away with the bright lights, outsized commercial rents and the obligatory small army of employees. Because all that ever translates into is an overpriced appliance. And we are all about helping every possible Australian household afford something for their home.

You mean you’re still not convinced? You don’t like the sound of (an ever-growing range) of high quality brand name home appliances retailed by an Australian company (with actual Aussies on the other end of phone calls and emails), at very-hard- to-beat prices, home delivered with service the way it should be? And with professionalism and transparency at every step of the way? Tough crowd!

All our products are brand new and come with full manufacturers’ warranties (specific to each manufacturer).

Your order will be processed within a couple of days and freight (depending on your location) can take anywhere from 5 to 14 BUSINESS days, on average. Unlike some other well-known appliance vendors, CBF will (within reason) attempt to service customers far and wide and wherever the delivery trucks can safely go. If you happen to reside in a postcode with a lot more country to it, please expect your item to arrive at the latter end of our stated delivery window. The freight companies may also attempt to get I touch (on your best contact number) before making the journey to safely deliver your appliance, so please be sure to answer your phone.

Delivery on a large number of our items, is free of charge, to nearly all parts of mainland Australia (Tasmania included). For certain items, delivery is free of charge to specific zones/regions only.

Competitive shipping is otherwise offered, which can either be confirmed upon checkout or contacting us for a custom quote. Please also check each item’s “Features” section for any additional shipping details.

Also there may be instances where certain remote addresses could incur some sort of an additional delivery charge. If you are ever in doubt about your location, kindly contact us at any time before making your purchase.

Yes and each has been tested and certified to this fact.

Each appliance comes with its own specific (advertised) manufacturer’s warranty. Warranty cards and 1800 numbers are enclosed with your new items. On top of that, we are always here and happy to help should you require further assistance or have any additional queries.

Bank Transfer, PayPal, MasterCard, Visa and Amex. And absolutely no cheeky surcharges!

In the rare event that this does occur, fear not as this is where the manufacturer’s warranty will kick in and assist in having a new unit delivered to you (while having the damaged/faulty unit picked up). All at no extra cost to you.

All our products are brand new and come with full manufacturers’ warranties (specific to each manufacturer).
