We originally assumed that in China as Roborock T7 presented robot vacuum cleaner comes to Europe as Roborock S7. As it now turns out, Roborock has slightly different plans for the local market. Instead of a Roborock S7, the manufacturer presents us with a Roborock S6 MaxV. A look at the data sheet reveals that it is roughly a further developed Roborock S5 Max. The vacuum robot should be available as early as June at a price of 649 euros.

Stereo camera and ReactiveAI

The most obvious innovation is the stereo camera, which effectively detects obstacles in the direction of travel. What the camera sees is processed by the new ReactiveAI. The heart of the AI ​​is a Qualcomm APQ8053 chip. This is a tailor-made IoT processor especially for machine learning tasks. The ReactiveAI is constantly learning and is able not only to classify objects according to position and size, but also to categorize them. The ReactiveAI knows how to recognize shoes, cables and even dog poo lying around and deal with them accordingly. If an object is not recognized, it is bypassed as a precaution.

The ReactiveAI of the Roborock S6 MaxV knows exactly what is in front of it.

The stereo camera is equipped with an infrared sensor so that the ReactiveAI can also do its work precisely in the dark. At the same time, the proven LiDAR navigation system is used, which we already know from other Roborock vacuum robots. But what about data protection? Roborock promises that the recordings will not be saved, not copied and not loaded into any cloud. After the ReactiveAI has processed the recording, it is deleted immediately.

This is what the camera of the S6 MaxV looks like. The two sensors are easy to recognize.

25 percent more suction power

The Roborock S6 MaxV is not only the most intelligent, but also the most powerful Roborock vacuum robot. Compared to the Roborock S6, the suction power of the new model has been increased to 2500 Pa. This corresponds to an increase of 25 percent. Roborock specifies the maximum running time as 3 hours, which in turn is sufficient for cleaning an area of ​​240 m².

 SnapMop wiping system 

The SnapMop wiping system is also new. It is an attachable 297ml water tank with electrically controlled water delivery. A full tank is enough for an area of ​​200 m². The water distribution can be set room-specifically via the Roborock app. There is an automatic wipe blocking zone function to ensure that carpets stay dry.

Floor storage and water zones.

Floor storage and no-go zones

Several floors are no problem for the Roborock S6 MaxV. Up to 4 maps or floors can be saved and are available in the Roborock for retrieval. The robot vacuum recognizes the change of floor automatically. Exclusion zones (virtual wall) that the vacuum robot should not cross can be conveniently drawn in using the Roborock app.

    It all sounds great, but I wouldn't buy a robot vacuum for more than € 400. I'm very happy with my S5 and I don't think the S6 MaxV is so much better. But I'm still curious how good it works with this camera. Do you have another test?

      Hi Sascha, the price is actually an announcement. To what extent a test for the Roborock S6 MaxV is coming, I can not tell you yet.

        Hello, I actually wanted to buy the S5. After thinking about it, I ended up with the S5 Max because it offers this better wiping function. Now this is even better. I have a lot of hard floors. Wiping would certainly not be wrong. Which Roborock can you recommend to me?

          Hi Sibylle, the S5 Max is a good choice and the wiping function should be similar to the S6 MaxV. It's best to take a look at our Roborock Facebook group. There are numerous members with whom you can exchange views on the individual models.

    Hello guys, there are already some tests on the Saugi on the net. Some read that the additional camera is good, others think it doesn't work well or would be unnecessary. What's your opinion?

    • Timo admin

      24. May 2020 18 to: 04

      Hi Thomas, I can't help you with that either. So far we have not received a test copy of the Roborock S6 MaxV!
