Chapter in this post:
With the eufy RoboVac G30 and the eufy RoboVac G30 Edge Anker is now also selling its latest vacuum cleaner robots in Germany. Both models use the same technology, such as the so-called “flow sensor”, which ensures that the same places are not cleaned twice in one pass. Furthermore, they bring 2.000 Pa suction power, a 600 ml dust container, two side brushes and other advantages. The difference between the two models basically only consists in the fact that the edge model can be limited in its effective area by delimitation strips. Further technical data and details can be found below.
Here are the most important technical data and functions of the two devices so that you can get an overview:
When it comes to modern vacuum cleaner robots, and especially models from Chinese manufacturers, there are often data protection concerns. This is particularly true with regard to the Roborock S6 MaxV vacuum robot, which with its "True Vision" technology means that two cameras on the front of the device deliver video material for evaluation. I have already read some concerns about this vacuum cleaner robot and statements from actually interested people who do not buy the device due to the possible evaluation in the country of origin.
That's why I asked Anker what the “flow sensor” was all about. I was assured that it is not a camera, that the sensor is also located on the underside of the device and that no pictures can be taken or transmitted with it. This was communicated to me verbatim: "The optical flow sensor itself does not provide any images. You can just understand that this sensor is a tool that helps the robot hoover run much more accurately to avoid cleaning the same places twice."
