Roborock unveils the S7 MaxV Ultra robot vac that also mops
Chinese robotic vacuum specialist Roborock has unveiled its latest model, the S7 MaxV Ultra, which vacuums and mops.
The “Ultra” part of the name is said to refer to the new fully automated Empty Fill Wash dock, which itself is expected to retail for around $500 (440). The S7 MaxV, which is expected to retail for around US$1,300 (eds. €1,149), is said to be powered by Roborock‘s most advanced technologies to date to “deliver a superior clean with even more convenience”.
In line with the company’s focus on delivering cleaning convenience to more people, Roborock has also announced the rollout of its new Q series, a mid-range offering that “combines the proven features behind the award-winning S series with auto-emptying convenience”, the company said.
Roborock CEO and founder Richard Chang commented: “Contrary to popular belief, robot vacuums actually still require hefty input from customers, both in terms of maintaining and operating.
“We are trying to change that by giving our customers an even more hands-off solution, one that requires minimum interactions with the device. That means building a vacuum that can identify and adapt to items in its path, including carpets and obstacles, while also emptying and maintaining itself whenever necessary. With the S7 MaxV Ultra, customers are taking a step closer toward true autonomy in floor cleaning.”
Compatibility with Roborock’s new Empty Wash Fill Dock means reduced manual maintenance for users. The mop is automatically scrubbed during and after cleaning sessions, ensuring the S7 MaxV Ultra is ready for its next run. According to Roborock, the dock self-cleans in the process of washing the mop too, keeping it well-maintained. Meanwhile, auto-refill function powers the S7 MaxV Ultra to mop up to 300 sq m, 50% more than its predecessors, while a dust bag is said to hold up to seven weeks of dust.
Introducing ReactiveAI 2.0 obstacle avoidance system
Powered by a combination of an RGB camera, 3D structured light and an all-new neural processing unit, the S7 MaxV Ultra recognises objects in its path more accurately and adapts quickly to clean around itself, regardless of lighting conditions, Roborock claims. It recognises and positions furniture in the app, allowing users to start a quick clean around dining tables or sofas with just a simple tap of an icon in the app. Plus, it identifies rooms down to their unique flooring materials, recommending ideal cleaning patterns such as suction power and scrub intensity. The S7 MaxV Ultra is certified by TUV Rheinland for its cybersecurity safety standards.
VibraRise mopping tech
Designed for uninterrupted cleaning sessions, the S7 MaxV Ultra features Roborock’s VibraRise technology, a combination of sonic mopping with an automatic mop lift designed to transition smoothly over contrasting surfaces, while delivering effective high-intensity scrubs to tackle surface dirt.
Combined with a maximum suction power of 5100pa, the S7 MaxV Ultra promises a “deeper clean”.
Roborock Q Series: making self-emptying a staple in robotic cleaning
Roborock Q series is a freshly-designed mid-range offering that combines auto-empty technology with proven features first introduced on the company’s flagship S series.
