Having a robot mop at your home can be very useful. But having a robot mop that can clean itself, is already another level. The Narwal Robotic Cleaner is a robot that can do the vacuuming, mopping and self-cleaning. It sounds ingenious at first.
The idea behind the Narwal is simple. To offer a smart home gadget that can do all the floor cleaning for you without having a need to touch it. Unlike other robot mops on the market, this device has a unique mop system which can wash, rinse and dry the mops automatically. It can separate waste water from clean water and with the use of a built-in pump, Narwal sprays the water to the mops and a washboard to clean the mop.
According to the company: “The robot returns to the base station automatically when needed, where its mops get sprayed, scraped and squeezed on the washboard. And then it goes back to where it left off and continues mopping. The rinse water will be pumped into the waste water tank.”
Equipped with smart sensors, Narwal uses smart mapping and navigation to adapt to any environment to clean the room properly with ease. The Lidar Navigation Technology helps the robot learn the environment and figure out an ideal cleaning routine. The included app extends already good automatic cleaning with an option to customize the cleaning strategy, define no-go zones for mopping or vacuuming, monitor the cleaning status and more.
Narwal Rotobitc Cleaner can clean all types of floors including tile, vinyl, hardwood, laminate and certain types of carpet. Add to that a minimal noise output, you have a smart gadget at your home that is ideal for late-night cleaning or for people who don´t want to be disturb.
