For carpet we embed sand evenly into a section of carpet and let the robot run for a set period of time on the carpeted area. The sand collected is weighed and recorded. With normal vacuums we pre-load the dust collector with dust, but robot vacs have a very small dirt receptacle which is normally emptied after a cleaning session, so we don't pre-load them.

Sand is spread into a right-angled corner, and the robot vacuum cleaners are assessed to see how close to the corner each one is able to pick up dirt.
We scatter a measured amount of sand evenly over a vinyl floor area and let the robot run for a set period of time, measuring the dirt pick-up at intervals throughout.
This is an accessory used to create an invisible barrier, for blocking off open doorways or other areas you don't want the robot to enter.
Programmable times allow you to set times of the day or week to run the robot - for instance, you could set it to run only while you're away at work.

A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
A Discontinued model cannot be found in retailers or online and is no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites or in second hand dealers.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
