iRobot Corporation is the brain behind the Roomba Vacuum Cleaners. Robotics enthusiasts from MIT founded the company in the early 90’s. The company first introduced Roomba in 2002 as an intelligent fully automatic robotic vacuum cleaner.
The first generation of Roomba is called the Intelligent Floorvac. The introduction took the nation by storm as expected by IRobot Corporation. It was deemed to be the very first successful commercial domestic robot to hit the U.S market. The basic features of the Roomba are launched and the era of automated cleaning begins. This first generation also included the Roomba Pro and the Roomba Pro Elite.
Then, the Roomba gets better with a second generation of domestic robots. The Roomba Red is metallic red giving you of an automobile-like finish. The notable difference is the Intelligent Cleaning feature. The Roomba Vacuum is now able to automatically estimate the time needed for the device to clean the entire floor it will cover. In contrast to the previous generation that has a three-button room size selector.
