It doesn’t matter that you forgot your charging cord on the floor in the living room, or that your new puppy left a “surprise” in the hallway. The Roomba® j7/j7+ robot vacuum detects and maneuvers around life’s clutter, like cords and pet waste, to get the cleaning done right for you—without you having to lift a finger…but did you ever think about what it would take to “teach” our robot how to avoid pet waste?
If you’ve never heard of this “poop+Roomba” phenomenon, well… robo vacs have a lot of moving parts, like wheels and spinning brushes. This is great if they are driving over and picking up dry dirt, but if the robot encounters a soft mass of something that it can grind up, those spinning brushes quickly become paint rollers. Then the robot drives all over the house.
