Spring cleaning season is upon us, and artificial intelligence has made significant strides within the cleaning industry, with much of its focus aimed at producing products for individuals seeking to liberate themselves from the drudgery of a top-to-bottom house clean. According to Statista, the global smart home market is expected to grow to $53.45 billion by 2022.
What’s the common theme among these gadgets? Harnessing the power of AI in order to plan out, maintain, and execute a clean home with as little intervention from those who live there as possible. Let’s take a look at 3 of the top AI-enabled cleaning technologies out there, and how they can ease the burden this spring.
Trifo’s Lucy AI Vacuum
Robot vacuums are nothing new, but these roaming devices have become increasingly sophisticated over the past few years as manufacturers strive to add functionality over and above simple cleaning algorithms. Enter the Trifo Lucy, a vacuum cleaner that makes use of artificial intelligence to not only map each room in a house, but also process images from its 1080p video camera so as to avoid obstacles like furniture, socks, and even dog droppings in a bid to provide a perfect clean.
Lucy boasts enough resolution to identify obstacles less than an inch high, and with additional software input, owners can use an app to put that camera to use patrolling as a security robot. According to TechHive from IDC, Lucy can “patrol your home and warn you of unwelcome visitors” should they be discovered. That same zoning feature can also be used to limit or assign where Lucy cleans.
LulePet AI Smart Cat Litter Box
Spring cleaning doesn’t just mean keeping the floors clear — it’s also a time to make sure that your pets are being taken care of, too. It’s never a bad idea to review what technologies are out there to improve the life of a furry little loved one, which is why the LuluPet AI Smart Cat Litter Box makes such an intriguing option.
What makes a litter box smart? How about the ability to analyze your feline’s feces and urine to make sure that he or she is in the best possible health? The app-linked LuluPet box doesn’t just use a camera system to accurately gauge the status of what your pet has left behind, but it can also track the frequency of litter box use and use an algorithm to determine whether there is any pattern that could indicate it’s time for a trip to the vet. It can even distinguish between multiple cats using the same box.
Alfawise S60 Window Cleaner Robot
Some spring cleaning tasks aren’t just inconvenient — they can also be dangerous. To this category we can add anything that requires the use of a ladder, which means that the Alfawise S60 Window Cleaner Robot is designed not just for convenience, but also to keep you safe.
This unique little glass-crawler automatically measures out the size of a window and uses AI to determine the best pattern for clearing the glass. It makes use of vacuum pump suction to get the job done, so all you have to do is position it on the window and let it get to work.
Staying smart with your spring cleaning assists and tagging in the latest in connected technology means getting a little less dirty in the process of making your home spotless.
