In terms of its overall performance and reliability, this top-of-the-line robot vacuum cleaner/mopping hybrid is the best on the market. It uses next-generation software — TrueMapping 3.0, AIVI 3D 2.0 and machine learning — to improve navigation and responsive, elevated object avoidance capabilities. It also offers more suction power (8000Pa) and a larger battery, allowing it to clean more spaces in one go.
The new X2’s powerful dual-laser Lidar sensors are the robovac’s ‘eyes,’ providing a 210-degree view for superior navigation and intelligent obstacle avoidance. The sensors are able to detect objects up to 10m away, and even a drop or protruding threshold at a distance, ensuring the X2 can seamlessly navigate through your home.
Aside from this impressive range of hardware, the X2 OMNI features a number of other upgrades that elevate it above its competition. Aside from the increased battery life, it now has an automatic dirt emptying system that eliminates the need for manual dustbin emptying. It also uses a more powerful motor, boosting its suction power to an amazing 8000Pa, which is among the highest of any vacuum/mopping robot on the market.
Another notable upgrade is the X2’s front sensor area. This is equipped with an RGB camera that uses AI-computing power to recognize obstacles and avoid them. This is a significant improvement over the T20’s front sensor, which used an infrared camera that didn’t work as well and often got stuck on certain objects.
Lastly, the X2 OMNI’s upgraded 3D mapping has been improved to allow it to identify specific areas that need special attention — such as the stain under your living room table. With the simple swipe of a finger on the app, you can now assign a cleaning job to your X2 OMNI and let it take care of it automatically.
All of these features are packed into a sleek and compact design, making the X2 OMNI an absolute pleasure to use. Its all-in-one OMNI station enables you to conveniently clean the robovac, wash its mopping pads and refill it with fresh water. The OMNI station is a smart and convenient feature that makes the X2 OMNI an absolute joy to use, and a great addition to any household.
