California-based AI home robot company Trifo had launched the Ironpie robot vacuum cleaner last year at CES. Over again, the company has announced they will be launching its new Lucy AI-powered robot vacuum cleaner at CES 2020. Outfitted with an AI-powered camera, this home robot can protect home with advanced surveillance technology.
There are several autonomous robotic vacuums available in the market; however, there is hardly any that can exactly see what’s in its path. This is where Trifo’s Lucy with HDR camera comes to life.
Trifo has raised $15 million in Series B funding from investors, including Yidu Cloud, Tsinghua AI Fund and Matrix Partners in order to support its AI-powered smart home products.
Lucy combines features of a vacuum and security camera together. This single device can do both tasks for you. Check out its features in detail below:
With a built-in 1080P HDR color camera and depth sensor for night vision, Lucy can recognize things in its cleaning path. It can recognize items as small as 1-inch so slippers, socks, and even pet poo is visible and can be avoided.
The vacuum robot utilizes RGB and depth information for accurate position tracking, indoor mapping and also to take a decision on its own. The built-in HDR camera lets one keep an eye on their home remotely, while the companion mobile app can be used for day and night surveillance.
Lucy AI-powered smart home robot uses a 6-core ARM SoC to recognize and divide rooms automatically and intelligently. For example, if she sees a bed in a room, she will understand and label it a bedroom. The cleaning areas can be assigned through the Trifo Home App. It can also be connected to Alexa-enabled devices.
Powered by a 5,200 mAh battery, it offers 3,000 Pa suction to effectively clean up dirt and can run for up to 120 minutes.
Using the Trifo Home App, you can define patrol routes by marking specific locations among the auto-recognized rooms inside your home. Lucy can also define optimized patrol routes and explore autonomously.
Lucy AI-powered home robot will be first seen at CES 2020, in Hall A-D, Booth 42541.
