The robot takeover is coming, it’s just a matter of time. Maybe not, but seriously,
these things are everywhere nowadays. What better way to defend yourself against a nefarious cleaning robot like the iRobot Braava, than to understand what makes them tick?

While the secret sauce of a cleaning robot is in the algorithm that guides it, there are likely some clever mechanical elements inside that allow them to operate in their dirty environment without failing.
M3 chose this product because the team wanted to see what makes a mopping robot different from the typical iRobot vacuum. This one makes use of an “indoor GPS”, aka Northstar® Navigation Cube, that is placed on a table top and helps guide the robot.
