‘Japan’s IoT products in the world are not performing well. And the Internet of Things business is far behind the United States for five years. In order to make Japan’s IoT business at the same level in the world, we need to introduce advanced products to promote Japan’s progress. China’s Internet of Things is developing rapidly. So we decided to cooperate with three startups in China, of which Roborock has shipped more than 5 million smart sweeping robots. Plus, they ship sweeping robots in many countries around the world.’
The Roborock S6 sweeping robot launched in Japan has two functions of sweeping and mopping. The maximum suction capacity is 2000Pa, the battery capacity is 5200mAh, and it can work for 180 minutes on a single charge. As for software, this product supports real-time viewing of the cleaning status as well as remote control through the app. It also provides room partitioning to specify room cleaning.
