iRobot, a company that makes domestic consumer robotics, has launched it's latest floor cleaning robot — ‘Braava 390t’ in India.

Braava 390t is a floor cleaner that features an ivory-coloured, square-shaped robotic floor mopping device. Its design is further contrasted with a black, diamond-shaped glass.

Braava 390t claims to start its cleaning action without any manual programming. The device is controlled using three buttons, i.e. Start, Sweep, and Mop, and claims to mop up to 210 minutes covering about 1,000 sq. ft. in a single go.

The Braava 390t comes loaded with a Pro-Clean System and dual-cleaning modes for dry and damp cleaning (sweeping and mopping). The device can also be filled with mild solutions or plain water and can easily work on hard surface floors such as vinyl, hardwood, and laminate.

In terms of features, includes iAdapt 2.0 navigation, which helps the bot to process over 60 decisions/sec and automatically analyse room contours to avoid rugs. It also features Northstar navigation cube – it serves as its localised positioning system (or an in-house GPS). The sensors include in-built cliff detection sensors that help in preventing the robot from falling down from drop-off zones. The robot supports Pro-Clean Reservoir Pad, which claims to dispense liquid in a phased manner as the robot mops. The 390t also supports fast charging and claims to be charged in 2 hours through its Turbo Charging Cradle.

Braava 390t claims to sweep up to 1,000 sq. ft. using a single-pass cleaning motion and mop up to 350 sq. ft. through a triple-pass cleaning motion – which essentially uses a zig-zag action to mop the floor surface. The Braava 390t robot is priced at Rs 25,900.
