These robots are fairly simple, as they sit on a charging station, until being turned on and going around the floor to vacuum for you. It senses everything around it so that it avoids getting into trouble, and when it’s low on battery they can find their charger and go back on their own accord. It makes cleaning floors extraordinarily easier. Considering that slip and falls are the biggest cause of work injuries for people over fifty-five and are the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims overall, according to the National Floor Safety Institute. Clearly, clean and well-maintained floors matter.
