iRobot Corp. introduced the iRobot Roomba 500 series Vacuum Cleaning Robots. The new robots can free themselves from almost any household jam, minimizing the need to prep rooms before Roomba begins cleaning. Using wireless technology, the robots now know when they have finished cleaning one room and then move on to the next. Versions of the new iRobot Roomba 500 series are available immediately in the U.S. and range in price from US$249 to $399.

The iRobot Roomba 500 series includes a design with modular components for enhanced durability and easy servicing, anti-tangle technology so Roomba can extract itself from tassels and cord tangles, built-in, light-touch intelligent sensing system that can detect when Roomba is approaching a wall or obstacle and automatically slow the robot for a gentler impact and quieter operation, a built-in voice tutorial for new users that demonstrates Roomba's features right out of the box, and a new mobility platform that allows Roomba to travel on thicker carpets, climb higher thresholds, and transition easily between floor surfaces.

Additional robots in the new line offer the ability to steer and control Roomba from across the room with a Wireless Command Center.
