Have you ever imagined a toy(trust me it is much more complex than a toy) like machine can be your partner in daily household chores? Yes .The time has come for it to become a reality with our tiny little room cleaning robot named ROOMBOT
Check out the video of our first prototype
While it is a fact that these bots already exist, our aim is to make ROOMBOT smarter, economical and more user-friendly which makes it one of a kind. Just to give an example, you can see what your partner is doing by using an app and also control it via phone(Sounds more like a game,doesn’t it?) .
We plan to make this Bot popular through social media Platforms, Tech platforms and of course by reaching out to people who would be willing to be a part of affordable cleaning solution which we are going to provide in the form of ROOMBOT.
In the future we plan to sell the product on Amazon Launchpad .It is a platform for startups which enables you to sell your product on the Amazon marketplace. Besides, they also provide support with the marketing and financial aspect. We also have the opportunity to scale up and eventually sell globally.
Why Help Us?
Your generous contribution would help us convert this prototype into an affordable product.
Any type of assistance from our sponsors would greatly help us invest into making this lovely piece of technology more affordable and user-friendly, making lives better and giving an opportunity for people to invest their time into more productive work, or rather just relax.
We need sponsorship in order to reduce the cost of the product by buying the components in bulk and to establish the tooling infrastructure. We have already reached out to the suppliers and have the necessary logistics in place.
Technical Part Of Roombot
“Roombot would be equipped with an advanced mapping technology which ensures that no corner of your room is left uncleaned. The RSSI-based system tracks the motion of the bot taking reference from the fixed beacons in the room. Roombot understands and learns the environment better with every use, constantly making it better. The multiple sensors embedded into the bot prevents the undesired collisions and also the cliff sensors avoid it from tumbling down the stairs.”
Roombot can be operated in two modes:
In autonomous mode, Roombot drives throughout the room and collects the dust through it’s vacuum cleaning system.After cleaning the whole room it sends notification to the user’s phone through connected bluetooth device or via the Internet.
Roombot is directly connected to Internet, so user can set schedule time or with a single click start it’s working and receive the status even if he/she is out of station.
Phone Controlled Mode
In this mode, Roombot is controlled by the phone via bluetooth or directly from the Internet.
Roombot is equiped with the webcam, by using Kandy.io API’s we can livestream the video from Roombot to User’s phone. With the help of firebase real time database it can be controlled at realtime. This mode can be used if user wants to clean particular area manually.
Vacuum Pump Design
We are working on fabrication of the vacuum pump now .Check out the initial sketch and concept design
We are using 5cm long propeller ,85 mm coreless DC motor and Centrifugal pump like eccentric enclosure
It wasn’t possible for Roombot to reach here without help of collaborizm and my team
Let me introduce them
