What are the types of sweeping robots? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Nowadays, sweeping robots appear more and more frequently in people's home lives, what is a robot cleaner? At present, sweeping robots are roughly divided into three categories, sweeping and mopping integrated machines, sweeping machines, and mopping machines.

Smart sweeping and mopping machine:

The sweeping and mopping machine, as the name suggests, is a dual purpose machine, which can both sweep and mop the floor. The rag is detachable. When sweeping the floor, remove the rag and just sweep the floor. When you need to mop the floor, install the rag. Dry mopping does not need to add water, and wet mopping requires water in the water tank.

Advantages: One machine with two functions, saving space, and the price is relatively cheaper than the two robots separated by sweeping and dragging

Disadvantages: Compared with the two robots separated by sweeping and dragging, the integrated machine needs to accommodate the two parts that occupy the space of the water tank and the dust box at the same time. The thickness of the fuselage is bound to be thicker, and the space of the water tank and the dust box is relatively small. The frequency of dumping dust is relatively high. In addition, the mopping and sweeping cloth is designed to be level with the ground, and the cloth is less stressed, so the mopping will not be particularly clean.

5 Smart Clean Modes

5 clean modes of the smart robotic vacuums are: Auto/Spot/Edge/Manual/Zigzag. Freely switch between different modes and power levels as you want.



The sweeper only has the function of a sweeper. It mainly relies on the motor to drive the brush (broom) to clean the garbage, and the motor generates suction to suck the cleaned garbage into the dust box, and cooperate to complete the cleaning.

Advantages: Single function, no water tank, lighter and thinner body, larger motor capacity, faster brush speed, stronger suction, no water tank design, lighter body weight, more power saving, of course. With a larger battery installed, the battery life will be longer.

Disadvantages: Single function, no mopping function, manual mopping is required, or another mopping machine is purchased.

Mopping machine:

The mopping machine has only dry and wet mopping functions, but no sweeping function. Wet mopping mainly relies on a water seepage system to evenly infiltrate the water in the water tank into the rag, and the engine drives the machine to mop the floor.

Advantages: Single function, professional wet and dry mopping, no dust box, the design of the fuselage can be held at a certain angle with the ground, and the force is applied to the rag. Under the same engine, the mopping force is greater and the mopping is cleaner. A larger battery can also be installed for longer battery life.

Disadvantages: Single function, no sweeping function, manual sweeping is required, or another sweeper must be purchased.

The above is the whole content of what is a sweeping robot and what are the types of sweeping robots, and what are the advantages and disadvantages of each. In fact, it is simply a sweeping robot, that is, an automatic sweeper, a smart vacuum cleaner, a robot vacuum cleaner, etc., which are smart home appliances. One of them can automatically complete the floor cleaning work in the room by virtue of a certain artificial intelligence.
