I’m fairly happy with the robot vac, but I believe many firmware improvements can be made to improve functionality and deal with unusual situations and error conditions. My top three:

  1. If the vac gets stuck for any reason (under furniture, inlet jammed on an errant towel, etc) send an alert to the app. As things currently stand, it just sits there until the battery is dead.

  2. Allow user-adjustable height clearance for getting under furniture (assuming lidar or other sensor can detect overhang). My workaround is to put a virtual wall around the problematic couch.

  3. If wifi is lost, use internal map to head back towards base station, when wifi recovered alert app with map showing where wifi is not detected so I can adjust my wifi antennae or power level.
