Frequently Asked Questions
Do Intellibot Robots really clean on their own?
Yes. The HydroBot, AeroBot and DuoBot all navigate using a combination of stored maps and on-board sensors. This allows them to clean an entire floor of a building, moving from area to area, without any input from an operator, aside from initial cleaning prep and to empty them when cleaning is complete.
Is a commercial floor care robot as reliable as a manual machine?
Absolutely. Intellibot robots are high-quality floor care machines, which possess heavy-duty drive motors, powerful vacuums, and rugged components that ensure years of trouble-free service. Our robots have a self-diagnostic function and reporting software that tracks normal wear and routine maintenance.
Am I sacrificing cleaning performance with a robot?
No. Intellibot robots actually improve cleaning performance because they move at the ideal pace for the floor surface they are cleaning. Robots clean the same way every time, never cutting corners or rushing to finish by the end of a shift.
Will robots replace my employees?
No. Our robots serve as workforce multipliers, freeing up employees to do necessary tasks other than floor cleaning. Most robots are added to complement an existing cleaning crew.
Do I have to program the robot?
No. Intellibot robots use intuitive, interactive menus to lead the operator through the mapping process with a series of yes or no questions. The only interface the operator needs to master is a built-in touchscreen...as easy to use as a cellular phone.
Do robots have the power to work an entire shift?
Yes. The average user dedicates less than 4 hours per shift on manual floor care because of workloads and battery limitations. Our floor care robots are equipped with a powerful battery pack that allows them to clean for up to 4 hours on a single charge. For users who want to run additional shifts, Intellibot offers a Battery Exchange Kit so that a simple swap of the battery pack can multiply the run time.
Can one robot be used in multiple locations?
Yes. Intellibot robots can store hundreds of maps, enough to cover complete floors, wings or buildings. An operator need only designate a single starting point.
Can I track the robot?
Yes. Our reporting software allows authorized managers to access in-depth information on machine usage as well as routine maintenance.
Is a robot safe?
Yes. Robots constantly monitor their surroundings, avoiding obstacles such as walls, furniture and people. Robots are equipped with front and rear bumpers that bring the robot to an immediate halt at the slightest touch. The robot can easily be stopped or paused manually with the clearly marked Emergency Stop Button.
