iRobot Corp. introduced the iRobot Roomba Pet Series Vacuum Cleaning Robot. It comes equipped with an extra set of brushes, a high-capacity sweeper bin for trapping pet hair, and kitty litter or dander and cleaning tools for ensuring both sets of brushes remain free of debris so they can perform optimally. The sweeper bin holds three-and-a-half times more debris than the vacuum bin, and counter-rotating brushes reach into carpets to pull out pet hair and dander.

The iRobot Roomba 532 Pet Series Vacuum Cleaning Robot, priced at $349, cleans up to three standard-sized rooms on a single charge. It comes standard with two Virtual Walls that use infrared beams to confine and guide the Roomba from room to room and then return it to its Home Base when it is done vacuuming. The 532 also includes iRobot’s light-touch bumper, advanced anti-tangle technology and the ability to transition from carpets to hard flooring with ease.

All Roomba Pet robots include iRobot’s three-stage cleaning system that automatically adjusts to clean carpets and hard floors. Roomba’s cleaning system evaluates its environment more than 60 times per second so the robot is always delivering the right amount of cleaning power to a floor, regardless of the size of the room, or the size of the pet.
