Cenozoic Robotics Unveils The World’s First Spot-Cleaning Robot

Labor shortages in the cleaning industry have stimulated a substantially increasing demand for floor cleaning robots. They fulfill the market gap caused by the labor shortage, create better working conditions for janitors, save vast labor time spent on floor cleaning, and improve cleaning consistency and results.

Current robots cannot do the job of a cleaning professional, especially “patrol cleaning”.  Cleaning robot sensors act passively to avoid obstacles or people, instead of actively detecting and cleaning spills and/or debris on the floor. They can only be used in areas with few people and are set to work in the early morning or late night, when areas are vacant. As pre-programmed machines, they follow a pre-determined route to clean the floor in a single pass and don’t check if the floor is actually cleaned. A morning inspection will often find uncleaned areas that necessitate follow-up.

To overcome these shortcomings, Cenozoic Robotics’ newly launched cleaning robot, Spot-Cleaner 50 (SP 50), is designed to clean like a professional. With its proprietary Artificial Intelligent (AI)-powered algorithms, it can detect the stains and/or debris on the floor, and automatically adjust the cleaning mode and run the spot-cleaning as a human professional would.

Leveraging the advanced Nvidia Xavier AI edge computing chips and multi-channel 3D LiDAR, it can pass through the high traffic areas while assuring a clean floor. Finally, as it is capable of detecting stains on the floor, it can do a cleaning result checkup, and will repeatedly clean the same area to ensure the job is completed satisfactorily.

Founded in 2021, Cenozoic Robotics leveraged its extensive knowledge of autonomous driving with the goal to develop the world’s smartest cleaning robot, one that can “Clean Like a Pro”. It successfully raised 30 million USD from top global VCs in 2022 and will join the cleaning show 2023 in London.  To learn more about the company, visit the Cenezoic Robotics website here.
