LG Unveils New 'HOM-BOT Square' Vacuum

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Complementing its other new Smart Appliances for 2013, LG Electronics (LG) announced its totally redesigned robotic vacuum, the LG HOM-BOT Square, with improved cleaning technologies and smart capabilities for easy cleaning on virtually any surface.



At next week's International CES® in Las Vegas, LG will demonstrate how its HOM-BOT Square offers a significant upgrade in cleaning performance, thanks primarily to LG's newly designed Corner Master technology. This advanced feature set includes improved sensors and longer brushes, enabling it to tackle hard-to-reach places.

Ultrasonic and infrared sensors detect obstacles, while the vacuum's Dual Eye 2.0™ cameras scan and map rooms, even when the lights are turned off.  The Turbo Mode settings let users manually adjust the cleaner to best match the characteristics of their flooring while Smart Turbo Mode automatically changes its own settings based on the type of flooring.

"From the beginning, we jumped into this project with the realization that consumers' rooms aren't round, they're rectangular," said Seong-jin Jo, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance Company. "In practically every house around the world, rooms have right-angle corners, so it made perfect sense to develop a vacuum that took this into account. The HOM-BOT Square makes cleaning the hard-to-reach places effortless."

While robotic vacuum cleaners typically have only one camera, LG's advanced HOM-BOT Square uses two improved Dual Eye 2.0 cameras to plot out a smarter, faster and more efficient cleaning route. Taking several images per second, the upper and lower cameras scan ceilings, walls and floors, even under dim lighting conditions. This information is then analyzed to generate smarter mapping. At the same time, multiple sensors detect obstacles within a 180-degree field, taking hundreds of surface images to help provide collision-free operation.
