Don't smear it on the floor, but bypass it: the iRobot Roomba j7+ robot vacuum cleaner learns to recognize pet feces
What came up with
This isn't a joke, but iRobot has been working on this for several years. Competitor models Roborock S6 MaxV and 360 Smart Life also support this option, but of course iRobot is skeptical and says that no one see feces like the Roomba j7+. In this robot is helped by machine vision and artificial intelligence. And also long "training": the vacuum cleaner has reviewed a large number of realistic images and models of excrement.
This way, upon discovering a nasty surprise from the pet, the robot will go around it and report the find to the user. By the way, this also applies to other objects lying on the floor like cables, socks or headphones. Upon seeing such an object, iRobot Roomba j7+ will ask through the app what it is and what to do with it. For example, if it is a cable that will lie there and further, the system will put it on map, and vacuum cleaner in further will bypass it.
New features are added in free iRobot Genius 3.0 software update, distribution of which started from today. As for the iRobot Roomba j7+ itself, its base version costs $649, and set with base station will cost $849.
