ECOVACS Unveils the DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI: The World’s Leading AI-Driven Robot Just Got Smarter

ECOVACS ROBOTICS, a global leader in home robotics, has today announced the launch of the market’s most advanced AI-driven robot vacuum cleaner, the DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI. It features an integrated and proprietary Artificial Intelligence technology for enhanced obstacle identification and avoidance, a new level of laser-based mapping and navigation performance, three hours of battery life and an integrated camera which can stream on-demand video to bring homeowners peace of mind. The newest DEEBOT is available now and comes with the OZMO Pro Oscillating Mopping System included.

The DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI features ECOVACS’ optimised AIVI™ (Artificial Intelligence and Visual Interpretation) Technology, TrueMapping™ Mapping and Navigation Technology, and advanced mopping and vacuuming performance, for a thorough and intelligent cleaning experience. The combination of these features results in a robot which can map the home environment much faster, and with greater precision than current platforms, while detecting and avoiding common household objects in the process.

“ECOVACS ROBOTICS continues to drive innovation in home robotics, always striving to push the boundaries of what is possible when it comes to automated floor care. The DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI is an impressive example of what this dedication to innovation can deliver.” said Karen Powell, Head of ECOVACS ROBOTICS for Australia and New Zealand.

“The DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI’s ability to recognise and respond to objects and obstacles in the environment around it is a game-changer when it comes to robotic cleaners. Users can now leave the home cleaning to their automated devices with unprecedented levels of trust that it will not get stuck. Add in the OZMOTM Pro Oscillating Mopping System and features such as Multi-Floor Mapping, aerospace standard TrueMappingTM technology and an impressive run time, and this robot is perfectly designed for traditionally large Australian homes, offering cleaning efficiency and detailed maps.”

Latest Optimised AIVITM Technology – Sophisticated Obstacle Avoidance

The DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI can automatically recognise objects including shoes, charging docks, cables, clothes, and socks to avoid obstacles and reduce the robot’s risk of getting stuck by 60%2 when compared to earlier models.

Advanced Mopping with OZMOTM Simultaneous Vacuuming and Mopping and OZMOTM Pro Oscillating Mopping System included

The cleaning powerhouse offers simultaneous 2-in-1 vacuuming and mopping functionality, combining precision and quick-reacting skills to remove up to 99.26% of bacteria[1]. With advanced carpet detection, the DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI will also automatically avoid carpet when mopping.

The T8 AIVI also comes with the OZMOTM Pro Oscillating Mopping System included, which enables it to deal with stubborn stains by using electrically powered high-frequency vibration (480 times/minute), and a unique fine mopping mode comparable to an electronic mop, further enhancing its mopping ability as it simulates a scrubbing motion.

Aerospace-standard dToF Detection Technology Powers new TrueMappingTM Technology – Enables Precise and Customised Cleaning

TrueMappingTM combines precision laser technology and advanced dToF (direct time of flight) sensors to map your home 4X faster than standard laser mapping, with the ability to detect a distance 2X further away, and the ability to detect objects down to a millimetre tall. With the detailed interactive map created, new levels of cleaning efficiency and customisation are achievable using the ECOVACS Home App. Laser mapping works in the dark so you can clean any time.

Peace of Mind with On-Demand Video Manager

On top of superior cleaning performance, the DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI can also be utilised as a roaming home monitoring device with the in-built on-demand Video Manager function. This enables users to check in on their pets, kids and home areas and appliances when out and about, making the DEEBOT a powerful housekeeping tool.

Pricing and Availability

The DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI is available from today from JB Hi-Fi, with the OZMOTM Pro Oscillating Mopping System included for an RRP of $1299. More retailers, products and accessories from the DEEBOT OZMO T8 family will be announced later this year.
