Newark, Calif., July 5, 2011 – Neato Robotics®, a Silicon Valley company that is pioneering new technologies and products to free people from household chores, today announced it has expanded its sales and distribution channels into Europe with the launch of the Neato XV-15™ home robot vacuum cleaner. This is the first time a Neato Robotics vacuum cleaner will be available outside of North America.
Based on advanced technologies that make the robot spatially aware of its surroundings through its laser-mapping system, Neato Robotics engineers have created a simply smarter robot that thoroughly cleans all types of floors and carpets with a push of a button or on a pre-scheduled basis without its owner(s) even being home. Its all-floor vacuum system is designed to meticulously clean homes on a daily basis, ensuring clean surfaces and more free time for its owners. More product information is available on the company’s website.
“There’s been strong interest from channel partners to promote and distribute Neato Robotics products into the European market,” said Warren Flick, president and CEO of Neato Robotics. “Our laser-mapping technology and software are game-changing innovations that up-level the entire category of domestic robots by providing them with the ability to see, think and remember where they’ve been. We anticipate that new European customers will be eager to hand over the dirty job of vacuuming to a smart, powerful robot that really keeps their homes clean and healthy.”
