LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neato’s Wi-Fi enabled Botvac Connected robot vacuum has been selected as a CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Home Appliances product category. Judged by leading industrial designers, engineers, analysts and members of the trade press, the CES Innovation Awards honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer technology products.
Botvac Connected is Neato’s smartest and best cleaning robot yet and offers consumers the best price/performance choice in the robot vacuum category. When connected to a Wi-Fi network, Botvac Connected lets users vacuum their homes right from the Neato app on their iOS or Android device no matter where they are. Users can also use their smart phone as a remote control device, directing the robot’s cleaning path when connected to a home network. With two different cleaning modes, long lasting Lithium Ion battery and Neato’s iconic D shape designed for cleaning corners and close to edges and walls, Botvac Connected delivers superior cleaning performance for $699.
Neato robot vacuums have long been acclaimed for their sophisticated navigation, which allows the robots to clean in methodical, back and forth patterns instead of bumping around a room like round robot vacuums. Using laser SLAM technology – best known for its use in the Google self-driving car – Neato robot vacuums use sensors and advanced technology to avoid obstacles, move from room to room and return to their charging bases to recharge before returning to the exact spot it left off.
The CES Innovation Awards judging teams evaluated products based on engineering, design, function, features and how the product directly compares to competitors in the market.
