Roomba Robotic Vacuum
Now in its 5th generation, the most advanced iRobot® Roomba® 980 takes the grunt work out of the grunt work. An intelligent robotic vacuum, the Roomba is smart enough to seamlessly navigate your home, keeping track of its location and covered area to ensure a thorough vacuum every time.
