In addition, the synergistic effect of powerful suction cleaning and wet wiping in one unit realizes powerful and delicate cleaning without waste. In addition, based on the business philosophy of “allowing you to spend time on the things you love”, in addition to excellent cleaning performance, you can reduce the time you spend on maintenance by focusing on ease of maintenance.

Equipped with a new 4-way fully automatic dock that fully automates troublesome maintenance, from washing, drying, and water supply of the wet mop to collecting the sucked garbage, you can always clean the whole house with a clean wet mop without getting your hands dirty. can. In addition, it frees you from the hassle of mopping, drying, filling the water tank, and throwing away garbage every time you wipe with water.
The suction performance has been increased to 6,000Pa, which is the strongest in Roborock products, and the newly developed two main brushes further improve the cleaning power of carpets. With regard to the wet wiping performance, the mop can handle stubborn stains by expanding the high-speed vibration area of the mop up to 3,000 times per minute and by installing a new function of “wet wiping super strong mode”. In addition, high-precision 3D structured lights, a camera, and an infrared imaging system can recognize small items on the floor and furniture that can get caught in the dark, and carefully clean while avoiding obstacles*1.
The “S8 Pro Ultra” has advanced cleaning power and a 4-way fully automatic dock to provide a more comfortable and comfortable life than ever before.

The S8 Pro Ultra automatically returns to its dock during and after cleaning to clean the mop with a brush spinning at 745 revolutions per minute. You can set the mop cleaning interval during cleaning to 9 levels (5 minute intervals from 10 to 50 minutes), so you can always clean with a clean mop. After washing, the mop automatically dries with hot air to prevent odors and mold. The drying time can be set to 3 times (2 to 4 hours at 1-hour intervals) in consideration of humid seasons and various environments.
In addition, the water required for wiping and mop cleaning is automatically supplied. There is no need to wet the mop every time you wipe with water, and if the water tank of the robot vacuum cleaner runs out of water during wiping with water, it will automatically return to the dock and start supplying water.
In addition, the garbage of the robot vacuum cleaner body is automatically collected. A 2.5-liter paper pack absorbs 60 days*2 of garbage, greatly reducing the hassle of throwing away garbage. Since it is a paper pack type, it is safe for those who are worried about dust flying when throwing away garbage. In addition, 99.7% of fine particles up to 0.3 μm such as pollen are sucked in to purify the exhaust. In addition, the 4-way fully automatic dock can be fully charged in about 4 hours. As a result, cleaning can be resumed quickly, and cleaning over a wide area can be performed comfortably. Reduce energy costs by supporting off-peak hour charging.

In addition, when the ultrasonic sensor detects the carpet during wet cleaning, the wet mop automatically lifts up and performs only suction cleaning *3.

Avoid objects with advanced sensors and high-precision cameras Using a high-precision 3D structured light and camera that utilizes the principle of face recognition technology to determine the distance and shape of an object, as well as a newly installed infrared imaging system, AI instantly analyzes objects on the floor to determine their position and type. It is possible to identify and avoid even in a dark room. Up to 11 types of objects that can be recognized and avoided (slippers and other footwear, cords, power strips, cloth, pet excrement, fans and other pedestals, scales, dustpans, paper scraps, pets, and furniture that can get caught easily) *4 Increase and display on the app. For privacy protection regarding the camera, “TUV certification for user security protection” * 5 has been obtained.
