Price of the Robot Vacuum
One of the first things, to know is the price one is willing to pay. Obviously, a 100 euro robot is not the same as a 600 euro one, although it is also true that a higher price does not always mean having a better robot, or having better features. Sometimes, it may depend on the positioning of the brand, the quality of the product or the offers that may be available.
In any case, each person does usually have an approximate price range in which to move, or to which they would be willing to reach in certain circumstances.
Therefore, the price, more than a characteristic that serves to choose a specific robot, serves to define an interval in which we will move. For example, in our comparison of the 30 best-selling robots, we have established three ranges: less than 250 euros, between 250 and 500 euros, and more than 500 euros. Interestingly, in some cases, it is possible to find robots with more features at a more affordable price, and in fact, for instance, in the range between 250 and 500, there are some of the best robots on the market.

In addition to the limitation of the price, when buying a robot vacuum cleaner we will also look at the quality-price ratio and/or performance-price: in short, it is about maximizing what we get in exchange for what we pay, it is that is, to get the best possible robot for the price we are willing to pay. A retractable cord vacuum also comes in handy in such a solution as it is quick to grab and you can easily clean the surface. A list of some of the best vacuum with retractable cord can help you to find the best choice for your home or commercial use.
Sensors and Navigation System
One of the main characteristics to take into account when choosing a robot vacuum cleaner is its navigation system. There is a fairly high correlation between the type of navigation system and the range in which the robot is located: simplifying a lot, we would say that low-end robots have a random navigation system, mid-range robots have ordered, methodical movements, and the high-end ones, precise navigation; Within this last section, we will even make one more subdivision, depending on the technology used.
Also important is the software the robot has, which converts the information it obtains from its environment into motion.
The most sophisticated robots have powerful processors, capable of interpreting data quickly and efficiently, providing more precise and fluid movements. In addition, its software is usually upgradeable, so that you can always count on corrections and improvements that may arise.
For example, the Roborock S6, which we can consider the successor to the successful Xiaomi Vacuum 2 Roborock, has incorporated several improvements in its software, which allow it to be up to 20% more efficient than its predecessor so that cleaning is completed in less time.
Regarding sensors, today almost all robots on the market have anti-fall sensors (to prevent, for example, falling downstairs) and different collision sensors, to avoid collisions. Some robots have other types of sensors, such as gyroscopes (to measure angular velocity), odometers (to measure linear velocity), acoustic, optical, infrared, or laser sensors.
