Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has announced that it will unveil a new vacuum cleaner lineup with advanced artificial intelligence (AI) at CES® 2024.
The Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™, a vacuum and mop robot cleaner will bring enhanced AI features and steam cleaning to realize an easier cleaning experience for users.
“I am thrilled to introduce our innovative vacuum cleaner lineup for 2024, the Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™, which leverages our latest AI technology to meaningfully improve its usability,” said EVP and Head of the Customer Experience Team of Digital Appliances Business at Samsung Electronics Moohyung Lee. “With powerful cleaning as a baseline, the new robot cleaner moves the consumer cleaning experience forward through innovative features. We firmly believe it will make cleaning more enjoyable for our customers.”
The Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™ is an AI-applied vacuum and mop robot cleaner that improves the user experience both during and after cleaning. The upgraded AI Object Recognition applied to the Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™ evolves from the technology previously introduced in the Bespoke Jet Bot™ AI+. It expands the number of objects it can distinguish, enabling more precise driving thanks to 3D sensor applied.
The most notable improvement is that AI Object Recognition can also recognize space and stains to provide users with better cleaning experiences. It determines and categorizes mapped areas like a living room and a kitchen, and automatically suggests setting up “no-go zones” such as the bathroom, the veranda or the entrance, to ensure the robot vacuum avoid designated areas. Meanwhile, when the Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™ detects a stain, it goes back to the clean station to heat the mop pads with high temperature steam and water and then returns to the area. With powerful spinning mops at 170 RPM, it can actively scrub off even hardened stains. These result in highly effective autonomous cleaning that reduces user intervention in a variety of environments.
Additionally, the model can even sense the floor type to provide enhanced cleaning, using a feature called AI Floor Detect. It distinguishes between hard floors and carpeting, and then automatically boosts its suction power which is appropriate even to vacuum up deep-lying dust in carpets. Furthermore, it helps prevent users’ carpets from getting wet and being contaminated by dirty mop pads. When the Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™ detects a carpet, it determines whether to lift up the mop pads or to detach them at the clean station to provide the improved anti-cross contamination solution.
The Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™ fully cares the last minute of cleaning experience. The clean station supplies a 3-step Total Cleaning System for mop pads, which includes auto wash, steam cleaning and auto dry with hot air. After it washes the mops with hot water heated by high temperature steam, it then sprays steam on them to prevent odors, enabling more hygienic maintenance.
For firsthand experiences of the Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™, attendees of CES® 2024 can visit the Samsung booth. It is currently in development and the features described above are subject to change.
