Investing in Robotic Technology and Products to Build Better Robots


A better robot lives in our world by moving around and acting in its environment more intelligently, by cooperating with the people it serves more compellingly, and by physically interacting with its surroundings more effectively. As the leading global consumer robotics company, iRobot is developing best-in-class technology in the areas of mapping and navigation, human-robot interaction, and physical solutions.

Mapping & Navigation

iRobot is focused on mapping and navigation technology development to make our robots smarter, simpler to use, and to provide valuable spatial context to the broader ecosystem of connected devices in the home.
Robot-built and maintained home maps are core to our long-term strategy. They provide important spatial context by capturing the physical space of the home. Maps provide the information needed to enable robots to purposefully navigate throughout their environment and accomplish meaningful tasks.

Human-Robot Interaction

iRobot invests in the development of interfaces for our robots in order to provide our customers with rich and convenient ways to interact with our family of products.
The way our customers will interact with and experience our products will continue to be enriched as a result of connecting our robots and integrating them with connected devices in the home, and with other cloud resources and services.

Physical Solutions

iRobot is dedicated to designing and producing robot solutions with market-leading mission performance that provide compelling value to our customers.
Our robots’ core value from the perspective of the customer is the ability to efficiently and effectively perform a physical mission. iRobot produces the best mission performance solutions on the market, whether it is vacuuming, mopping or another cleaning task.

The SMART Home - An ecosystem of robots working together

Imagine a home that maintains itself and magically just does the right thing in anticipation of occupant needs. This Smart Home will be built on an ecosystem of connected and coordinated robots, sensors, and devices that provides the occupants with a high quality of life by seamlessly responding to the needs of daily living – from comfort to convenience to security to efficiency. iRobot is working to build an ecosystem of robots and data to enable the smart home.
