The new software features allow DEEBOTs to simultaneously clean and map an area. So, essentially, they learn the layout of your rooms so that they can re-orientate themselves from any position if needs be.
DEEBOTS re-learn as they go
If you are anything like me, you will rearrange your rooms every now and then. Furthermore, our rooms are always changing; be it clutter from packages, toys being left out by the kids (or pets!). The completely-revised mapping function of the DEEBOTs continuously registers and adapts to these changes.
Furthermore, there has been optimisation to the mapping and orientation functions of the DEEBOT 900 and DEEBOT OZMO 930 as well as the OZMO mopping function. Using Over-The-Air technology (OTA) the software updates automatically over Wi-Fi.
Thanks to the Smart Navigation Function, both DEEBOT models are able to measure any room. They are then able to create a digital map of it and transfer it to the ECOVACS app. With the app you can control the DEEBOTs and set them in motion from any location. Additionally, this includes drawing virtual boundaries, creating virtual cleaning plans or undertaking targeted cleaning of separate areas. The new firmware update offers the following advantages:
Wi-Fi coverage map
The bot allows you to track the strength of your Wi-Fi. The small Wi-Fi icon indicates the location of the router and the DEEBOT maps different shades of blue. This indicates the Wi-Fi strength signal within the mapped room on the ECOVACS app.
A bot that maps while it cleans
Thanks to the new SLAM (simultaneous location and mapping) algorithm, changes in room layout will pose no problems. The DEEBOTs can detect carpets and the DEEBOT OZMO 930 can detect when to mop floors without the need for prior mapping.
DEEBOT always knows where it is
DEEBOTs maintain their orientation in a room at all times, even if they are relocated. If the DEEBOT is relocated, it automatically detects it’s in a new location using its stored maps, and continues cleaning from its new position.
Even if the DEEBOT is put in an environment that is not mapped, it continues cleaning and registers the new rooms in the app. The initial map can be restored when the DEEBOT is back at the docking station.

We hope to get an Ecovac DEEBOT to put through its paces very soon. So, stay tuned.
