SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trifo®, a leading provider of intelligent robot cleaners for the home, today announced the availability of the most anticipated AI Home Robot, Trifo Lucy® and Lucy® Pet Edition. Lucy leads the way with its AI-capabilities and advanced home security technology, to protect and clean the home with one of the most powerful cleaners available on the market. Its outstanding innovation was awarded with the Editor’s Choice Award at CES 2020.
Lucy is an AI-powered robot cleaner with intelligent home security designed to clean, protect and precisely analyze room environments within the home. Using advanced perceptive capabilities, Lucy can accurately learn and interact in every room keeping your home clean and safe. Lucy’s 1080p HDR color camera and depth sensor enable the robot to expertly navigate the home, offering both day and night security.
Lucy Pet Edition boasts 33% more suction power at 4000 Pa, perfect for furry friends at home to manage pet hair and larger dirt particles. It also provides an extra pet hair extractor featuring an anti-knotting function ensuring long pet hair does not get stuck.
“Lucy’s cutting-edge technology is a huge step forward for Trifo. Lucy is the first home robot to interact and learn the entire home environment using innovative AI technology. By utilizing efficient and powerful edge computing, we assure that our customers’ personal data is securely stored and processed locally on the robot instead of in the cloud. Lucy is a trustworthy multi-functional home robot that protects and cleans the home 24/7, ensuring every family member can focus on what’s important,” said Zhe Zhang, Trifo’s Founder and CEO.
“It took more than 20 years for robot vacuums to be highly developed, but that’s just a small step compared to the development of home robots,” Zhang added. “The birth of Lucy was inspired by the oldest hominin skeleton ever discovered, who illuminates the human evolution timeline. With that spirit in mind, we are dedicated to being a pioneer to expedite the evolution and bring advanced home robots into future households.”
THE POWER OF LUCY
First, Lucy is the first home robot that offers crystal clear day and night vision via a 1080P HDR color camera and a Time-of-Flight (ToF) depth sensor, which ensures highly accurate distance mapping, 3D imaging, and object scanning even in low-light conditions. With this unique combination, Lucy utilizes both color and depth information like no other home robot for high precision position tracking, indoor mapping, 3D scene understanding, and unique day and night surveillance.
Second, Lucy’s mapping and cleaning efficiency is beyond compare. Its exceptional perception and decision-making abilities allow Lucy to detect and avoid small objects down to 1 inch, thus allowing it to schedule the best route based on the home environment. According to Trifo, the laboratory testing shows that Lucy’s cleaning efficiency is up to three times higher than its competitors.
Third, Lucy will continue to get smarter over time with powerful software over-the-air (OTA) updates providing consumers with a best-in-class user experience. Currently, Lucy has the power to recognize over 70 objects, such as socks, shoes, power cords, stains, carpets, floors, and more. With its intelligent decision-making skills, Lucy will keep evolving and become more intelligent over time to free people from their daily routines.
Obstacle Avoidance – While most home robots cannot recognize obstacles less than 4” tall, Lucy sees it all, down to 1”. In its “eyes”, toys, slippers, socks and pet accidents are visible, and Lucy avoids them. Lucy provides an advanced real-time object detection with a complicated combination of proprietary 3D geometry and 3D semantics algorithms.
Room-by-Room Cleaning – Lucy can recognize and divide rooms through an interactive experience. With an advanced 6-core ARM SoC, Lucy pushes the limit of accuracy and brings AI to reality. The family can effortlessly name the rooms, designate cleaning areas, and set “no-go” zones through the Trifo Home App.
Trifo Home App – Lucy’s family can also program Lucy remotely to schedule cleaning, pinpoint its location, and monitor their homes whether they’re at home or not. Lucy is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, allowing consumers to integrate Lucy into their smart home system. The Trifo Home App is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Maximum Power – Crumbs, pet hair, and dust don’t stand due to Lucy’s 3,000 Pa and Lucy Pet’s 4,000 Pa power suction. The 5,200 mAh battery keeps runtime up to 120 minutes.
Pricing and Availability – Lucy is available for $699.99 (US) from trifo.com and Amazon in the U.S., followed by Lucy Pet, which is priced at $749.99 (US). Mother’s Day Sale (April 29 to May 9): Lucy $499.99; Lucy Pet $549.99.
