Amid the Coronavirus lockdown in India, Xiaomi launched its first intelligent cleaning robot in India. This latest modification comes as an alternative to the Robot Vacuum Cleaner that it sells in China. But this new cleaner is a much better version than the Chinese knockoff. As compared to the GPS navigation system, Xiaomi uses the state-of-the-art Laser Detection System for navigation.
The Vacuum-Mop P has 12 precision sensors that help co-ordinate all kinds of interaction with the user. The device supports remote operations using the Mi Home App. The original Robot Vacuum Cleaner launched in China in 2016. But still, the new vacuum cleaner takes some design iterations from its predecessor.

What are the specifications of the Vacuum Cleaner?
The Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner Mop P is extremely powerful in terms of suction. It sports a Japanese brushless motor which produces 2,100 Pa of suction pressure. This new AI cleaner map coordinates using the Laser Detection System instead of the conventional GPS modules. It also sports an upgraded SLAM Algorithm. The tank inside has an intelligent water dispensing system.
Under the hood, this vacuum cleaner comes with a quad-core Cortex -A7 CPU along with a dual-core GPU of Mali-400. This enables faster AI algorithm analysis and predicts data and paths easily. The Mi Robot Vacuum Mop P has a 3,200 mah battery. The device also has support for Wi-Fi 802 in the connection system.
This newer version of the Chinese model seems to be made specifically for Indians. The price of Vacuum Cleaner Mop P is Rs. 29,999 in India. But, as an introductory offer, Xiaomi India is offering the same at a price of Rs.17,999. The Mi Robot Vacuum Mop P also allows no-cost EMI payment options for its customers, starting at a low price of Rs. 2,999/month. But due to the lockdown in effect, the device is only available online. Customers can buy it from the Mi Crowdfunding platform and can expect shipping from 15 September 2020.
