Robotic startup Narwal launches new robotic vacuum

Robotics startup Narwal has launched its newest product - the Narwal Freo - a "brand-new and versatile cleaning robot, which aims to redefine auto-cleaning, creating a pleasing experience for users and greatly facilitating the day-to-day cleaning process".

According to Narwal, the robot has all cleaning modules in place so customers don’t have to manually switch requirements. It also combines a patented DirtSense and Smart-Swing and a new upgraded Touch LCD station. In addition, the company claims it is the only product on the market offering the latter feature, making it smoother and simpler to manipulate.

“The invention of the Freo reflects our care and concern about customers, as well as our dedication to impacting people’s lives by making their day-to-day life easier,” explained Junbin Zhang, founder and CEO of Narwal.

“In this smart home technology industry — which is not yet smart enough — we truly care about the users of our products and stay focused on what they need, solving any problems related to the cleaning process and making it an easier one for them.”

The introduction of Narwal Freo follows the company’s successful launch of its first two-in-one robot mop and vacuum with auto-cleaning station, the Narwal T10, which was unveiled in June of 2021, garnering a good response.

As the company’s newest product, the Freo comes after a year of dedicated research and development by the entire Narwal Team, an intensive effort to perfect details before finalising the innovation.

Also unique to the Narwal Freo’s design, according to the brand, are the tilted 14-degree side brushes, inspired by a street sweeper truck. This is said to be the most effective angle to sweep the larger particles in and keep smaller dust particles out.

Narwal has applied for over 400 patents to date. DirtSense, Smart-Swing, Noise Reduction and Self-Cleaning Base Station are a few of the many patents that the company has already received. In addition to the five cleaning modes as compared to the T10’s two modes, what differentiates the Freo from the T10 is its Freo Mode, which was originally invented by Narwal.

Freo Mode combines customisable floor-type cleaning plans and patented DirtSense technology and Smart-Swing feature. The algorithms of DirtSense technology also help Freo to determine how many times to clean thoroughly for a flawless floor, while Smart-Swing is said to help Freo clean the wall edge significantly better.

Narwal states that the Freo is an upgrade from other models that offer the same pressure for all flooring types. In addition to customised settings for floor types, the Freo adjusts mopping pressure accordingly, ensuring that floors are well protected.
