The Stage is Set for 2015 to be the Year of the Robot Vacuum

Neato and Newcomers will Battle to Give Consumers An Array of Options to Serve their Needs (and Wallets) to Establish Home Cleaning Robots

NEWARK, Calif.--()--The home robot vacuum market just got more interesting.

“With emphasis being placed on the market with new entries by notable mainstream vacuum brands – Dyson and Samsung – who are throwing their weight behind the category, 2015 promises to the year of the robot vacuum,” proclaimed Allen Hollingshead, VP of Sales, Americas/Asia Pacific for Neato Robotics. “The robotic vacuum category has been on a steep growth trend for the past several years. It was really just a matter of time before major vacuum companies such as Dyson with the new 360 Eye and Samsung joined the game.

Hollingshead continued: “The presence and marketing dollars of these new entrants will undoubtedly yield broader awareness and growth of the category among consumers in general.” Reports indicate the Dyson 360 Eye, announced in Japan this past week, will be available starting in Japan in mid-2015 and then in other international locations sometime after that.

Neato is the originator of intelligent robots with superior navigational capabilities, efficient and logical cleaning patterns, rather than the random bumping of current products.

The foundation of Neato’s robotic technology is its patented Neato Botvision™, a breakthrough in robotic mapping and navigation. Neato Botvision uses proprietary navigation software that is based on SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) – the same technology used by the Google self-driving car.

Neato’s proprietary laser distance system cleans a room up to 4 times faster than other robot vacuums and can make multiple trips to efficiently clean a house up to 2200 square feet.

In addition, Neato designed a D-shaped robot with three straight sides and a large wall hugging brush. It is the only robot on the market with corner clever technology for maximum corner cleaning efficiency.

Best for Pet Hair

Neato has been cited by top industry reviewers, including CNET, as the best robot vacuum for picking up pet hair. Users can schedule automatic weekly or even daily cleanings to keep their homes free of pet hair and dander.

And, it’s also a real vacuum: Neato robots are built from the ground up to be true vacuums, not sweepers, with the powerful suction users want from their vacuum.

Neato robot vacuums also are available in a range of prices, offering the best price/value in the industry, starting at $399US.
