Up to 10x more power
The AeroForce Cleaning System with Carpet Boost provides up to 10x the air power* by automatically increasing the performance of the Gen 3 motor on carpet and rugs, where dust and dirt hide.
*Compared to Roomba 600 and 700 series AeroVac systems.
iAdapt 2.0 Navigation with Visual Localization helps Roomba seamlessly and efficiently navigate an entire level of your home and keep track of its location.
And with a full suite of sensors and a low 3.6" profile design, Roomba can vacuum where dirt and dust hide, navigating around furniture and under beds, sofas and other hard-to-reach places.
Recharge and resume
Roomba 981 runs continuously for up to 120 minutes, then automatically recharges and resumes cleaning to complete the entire job.
Note: Tested in iRobot's Home Test Lab on hard floors. Run times may vary.
Manage where your robot cleans
The 2 included Dual Mode Virtual Wall Barriers features two modes to manage where your robot cleans. Virtual Wall mode keeps your robot in the rooms you want cleaned and out of the ones you don't. Halo mode keeps your robot away from items you want to protect.
