Cleaning your floors can be a tedious and boring job, especially when it comes to vacuuming and mopping.

With the growing popularity of robot vacuums, now is a great time to make the switch and let a robot do some of your cleaning for you.

The Shellbot SL60 is a two-in-one robot vacuum and mop that can help you with your daily tasks. It has 4000Pa suction power with LiDAR navigation and convenient control via smartphone app.

The Shellbot SL60 is available on Amazon for $309.99. Let’s see what it’s all about.

Good

So let’s start with what we love about the Shellbot SL60. There are tons of different robot vacuums available today, so it’s good to know exactly what each is capable of when looking to pick one up.

Starting off, the SL60 features a high-powered brushless motor that enables suction power of up to 4,000 Pa. Such power can handle even some of the finest particles in your floor.

It is equipped with LiDAR navigation and AI recognition to help avoid obstacles while cleaning. It has drop protection to prevent the device from falling down stairs, but the company recommends that you add a physical barrier to keep the robot vacuum safe.

It also features an automatic power boost that boosts suction to full power to clean carpets. And with a 5,200mAh battery, it can clean for up to 200 minutes before automatically returning to its docking station to recharge.

As we mentioned earlier, the SL60 isn’t just for vacuuming. The device comes with a two-in-one water tank that you can attach instead of the dust tank. Using this option, you can both mop and vacuum, which takes the strain off your plate even more.

All of this can be controlled via the Shellbot iOS and android application. When you download the app and connect it to your device, you have full control over the functions of the SL60. You can map your home using the app, set no-go zones, and even schedule cleanings at certain times.

The bad

Of course, the SL60 isn’t perfect, and there are definitely a few things that could be improved on the device. Here are some things that could be improved on the SL60 robot vacuum cleaner:

No dump station: One feature you find on some robot vacuums that isn’t available with the SL60 is a dump station. Instead, you’ll have to manually empty the trash from time to time.

The trash can is a bit small: Along the same lines as the previous complaint, the SL60’s dustbin is rather small.

Depending on how much cleaning you do, you may need to manually empty the trash can quite often. And the trash can is even smaller when you use the two-in-one vacuum and mop attachment.

Will not replace the traditional mop: While the SL60’s mopping function is handy, it won’t replace traditional mopping.

Sometimes cleaning takes a little elbow grease to get those stubborn stains off your floor. The SL60 just doesn’t have the power to tackle the toughest stains.

That being said, the mopping function of this robot vacuum is super convenient and helps you keep your floors consistently shiny without having to constantly mop by hand.

These are the only real complaints I have with the SL60. There are definitely some improvements that could be made to the device but overall it does what it was supposed to do and is a nice addition to your daily cleaning repertoire.

Should you buy the SL60 robot vacuum cleaner?

As I said earlier, there are tons of different robot vacuums on the market today. You can pay between a few hundred dollars and a few thousand dollars for a robot vacuum, each with different levels of performance.

When it comes to the SL60, you get what you pay for.

The device has a powerful 4000 Pa suction and an impressive battery for long cleaning sessions. The companion app is handy and lets you set up a cleaning schedule the way you want.

And that’s not to mention two-in-one cleaning and vacuuming. If you’re looking for a robot vacuum and don’t want to break the bank, Shellbot’s SL60 is a good option to try.

Just note that you will have to clean this bin by hand from time to time as there is no automatic drain tower.

Again, the Shellbot SL60 is available at Amazon for $399.99.

BONUS OFFER: For a limited time, Shellbot is offering readers a special discount that drops the SL60 robot vacuum to just $213. Simply clip the $60 coupon on the spot to get the discount. The coupon will expire on June 19.

Badger Technologiesa product division of Jabil and leader in retail automation, rolled out a pilot program with Vallarta Supermarkets, a chain of 53 full-service markets across California, to drive operational and customer service excellence .

Badger Technologies’ versatile autonomous robots are supporting the retailer by identifying hazards in five Vallarta supermarkets in Fresno, Kern, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.

Vallarta is also testing the robot’s inventory management capabilities in a sixth location aimed at improving product availability on the shelf.

Steve Netherton, CIO and Vice President of Continuous Improvement at Vallarta Supermarkets, said, “Providing our customers with a clean and safe environment is critical to our customer experience.

“When considering where to invest in innovative technologies, improving store operations is always a high priority. Badger Technologies robots help us set new standards for in-store safety and cleanliness while ensuring an exceptional shopping experience. »

Founded in 1985, Vallarta Supermarkets, based in Sylmar, Calif., is recognized as one of the largest Latino supermarket chains in the state.

The company is also known for its highly trained staff eager to help customers select fresh produce, quality meats and baked goods, as well as traditional and specialty food items from Mexico, as well as Central America. and the South.

Priority to safety and cleanliness of the store

Vallarta’s initial proof of concept (POC) featured a robot equipped with Badger® Retail InSpect to supplement existing manual floor inspections with automatic hazard detection.

After the POC exceeded expectations, Vallarta implemented a pilot project in five stores to help them identify hazards, such as liquid, powder or bulk food spills, while potentially mitigating the risk of slip and fall accidents.

Hazard notifications are transmitted by the robot to the store’s public address system and mobile pulse alerts. The images are collected and stored for a period of time, for archival purposes.

Suzanne Wong, Director of Operational Excellence at Vallarta Supermarkets, says, “The robot gives us another pair of eyes to be more proactive in locating spills and debris.

“The result is an increased awareness among our staff and customers that we place a high priority on store safety and cleanliness. Other benefits include improved customer service, workforce efficiency, and data for risk management. »

Data-Driven Business Results

Vallarta Supermarkets also launched a POC at a sixth store to test a robot equipped with Badger® Retail InSight for automated inventory detection of out-of-stock products.

Cloud-based analysis and reporting software generates a list of missing, misplaced, and/or mis-rated products for troubleshooting.

Dashboard data provides insight into customer buying trends as well as the performance of product displays and advertising promotions. This automated process also helps Vallarta’s pricing departments collaborate and prioritize product replenishment.

William “BJ” Santiago, CEO of Badger Technologies, says, “The opportunities to offload time-consuming but important floor inspections while collecting real-time product inventory data makes a huge difference for retailers, d especially as they struggle with ongoing labor shortages.

“Our versatile autonomous robots provide much-needed relief by amplifying and expanding staff operations while producing the data needed to improve customer satisfaction, store-wide operations and retail revenue.”

Nearly 600 Badger Technologies autonomous robots have been deployed in the United States and Australia. These versatile robots travel hundreds of thousands of miles each year to help keep shelves stocked, product prices correct and floors clean.

As a member of Jabil, Badger Technologies has access to cutting-edge retail technologies, innovative software and cloud services, and world-class manufacturing solutions.

Popular sentiment around automation is easy to understand and hard to ignore.

With the world we live in, the idea of ​​blue collar jobs being completely replaced by the thousands with robots that don’t take breaks or need a paycheck is terrifying. Eventually, any job that doesn’t require complex on-the-fly decision making (and even many that do) can be phased out.

So why is this a bad thing?

Well, that seems pretty obvious. Having a job is good. Losing a job sucks. A reality that many people share is that the biggest employer in a small town lays off most of the population – and without other opportunities, it can potentially ruin lives.

This situation will become increasingly common as automation technology improves. Delivery drones, autonomous vehicles, those little robotic cars that deliver for Postmates – the hardware is there and the software is catching up fast. Even as someone who is considering working in robotics (above all as someone considering working in robotics), it’s hard not to feel bad about being potentially responsible for disrupting an industry.

And so the question changes: robots don’t literally go out and take people’s jobs, so whose fault is that?

One could say that it is the fault of the human workers for not being irreplaceable, or perhaps the fault of the inventors for providing the means of replacement, or the fault of the managers for choosing the option which values ​​the profit margin compared to the livelihoods of employees.

I don’t think those opinions are helpful.

It’s cruel to conclude that if people don’t want to lose their jobs to automation, they shouldn’t be working in those jobs. It is unfair to claim that engineers are responsible for how others use the technology they develop. It is unreasonable to expect factory managers to employ more people than is useful simply to create more jobs.

The Luddites of England, better known now as a pejorative term for someone who is afraid of technology, were not afraid of the crafts they were destroying; they feared losing their income to automation in the difficult economic environment of the Napoleonic Wars. Deconstructed, it’s almost depressing. Imagine being in such a horrible situation that you beg for an opportunity to work in a 19th century textile factory.

The point here is that the Luddites ultimately failed, and the looms that replaced them are still automated two hundred years later. There are no people protesting to get rid of these looms so we can go back to weaving everything by hand, because it’s faster and cheaper to produce and buy. The impact of automation is temporary and in the long run it can make society better for everyone, but this temporary impact is not something we can simply ignore.

So what can we do? If we’ve determined that this technological progression is no one’s fault and that there are inevitable negative effects when it happens, but we also want it to continue, have we even gotten anywhere? ?

If we had an incredibly ideal job market where everyone was in their dream job at the salary they wanted and no company was understaffed or overstaffed, then everyone would see automation with stars in it. the eyes. The invention of windmills made flour cheap, quick and easy. The invention of the mechanical loom did the same for fabrics, the invention of the automatic automobile assembly plant did the same for cars and, one day soon, artificial intelligence will do the same for deliveries and transport.

There is no easy solution to this. Technology will continue to be invented, papers will be signed, people will lose their livelihoods, and profit margins will skyrocket no matter what we do. Perhaps one day employment will be so readily available that “keeping the coal mines open for jobs” will no longer be a political sticking point. Maybe not. All we can do is pay attention to the role we play in the cycle and ask ourselves what could be done to minimize the human impact.

Universal Robots (UR), an automation company with US headquarters in Ann Arbor, will display a variety of its collaborative robots (cobots) in more than 30 booths at the Automate 2022 trade show and conference, a showcase of automation taking place at Detroit’s Huntington Place June 6-9.

“Welding is the latest example of a frontier of automation now being conquered by cobots,” says Joe Campbell, senior director of strategic marketing and application development for UR, of the company’s 300% growth. on the year-over-year segment.

“When we entered the market, few people thought cobots could handle heavy duty tasks like welding. Fast forward to this year’s Automate and we showcased many welding applications, reflecting the strong market pull we are seeing now – not only for MIG welding management, but also for more complex processes such as TIG and laser welding.

At Automate booth 1432, Cobot Systems, a UR Certified Systems Integrator (CSI), is launching the first commercially available IPG LightWELD laser welder to be guided and controlled by a cobot.

“Laser welding allows for significantly faster welding, is easier to learn and use, and provides higher quality, consistent results over a wider range of materials and thicknesses with minimal distortion, warping, undercut or burn-in,” says Brian Knopp, Founder of Cobot Systems.

Another new welding solution comes from UR CSI Melton Machine and Control Co., showcasing an upgraded version of the market’s first cobot-powered cold-wire TIG welder that allows the cobot to add both melt material and filler to thinner material as it moves.

For the first time at a North American show, UR will showcase a press brake maintenance application on its booth. Mid-Atlantic Machinery’s press brake operator package features a UR10e on a modular parts cart with a machine tool interface and area safety scanner that keeps the shop safe.

Fabricators looking for everything they need to successfully automate a CNC mill can see VersaBuilt’s UR+ Certified Mill Automation System (MAS) with a MultiGrip automation work holding system that allows machinists easily add new parts.

“If your CNC parts can be held with a vise, they can almost certainly be automated with a factory automation system,” says Al Youngwerth, CEO of VersaBuilt. He also pointed out that the MAS is a standard automation system that does not require any expertise or robot programming to operate.

UR’s miscellaneous application stand includes areas not only for welding and machine maintenance, but also for assembly and packaging application areas. In the assembly area, companies needing to automate high-torque processes will receive a hands-on demonstration of how UR+ partner Estic’s fastening solution can handle these tasks using patented pulse technology, which reduces the torque reaction and the wear of the cobot joints considerably. .

For assembly of parts requiring adhesive, Robatech will offer the 360° Gluing, a UR+ integration kit that connects a UR+ cobot to Robatech’s adhesive application systems. The integration kit includes a support for the application head and accessories for the heating pipe on the arm of the cobot. Settings for the heated hose, application head and melter can also be made using the cobot’s touchpad.

UR CSI Kolinahr’s label applicator robot features a UR10e in a delicate application, applying a label inside a roll core. This demonstrates the dexterity of 6-axis UR cobots, which can reach places that are difficult for their human colleagues.

To ensure that the quality of manufacturing processes never falters, UR+ partner 3D Infotech will showcase automated robotic inspection solutions. 3D Infotech will showcase its smart cobot-powered UMA station that can perform complete 3D inspection tasks with a single click; Spotlight AR++, augmented reality software for manufacturing environments; and PartID, a machine vision tool that allows non-technical operators and engineers to quickly validate an object’s position and shape.

Since UR launched UR+, the world’s first cobot ecosystem of third-party components and application kits, the platform has grown exponentially. It now includes no less than 318 UR+ partners with 359 UR+ products certified for perfect compatibility with UR cobots.

One of the UR+ partners, SCHUNK, will demonstrate two EGP-C collaborative grippers on a UR5 in a machine monitoring application. After loading and unloading parts into the lathe, the UR5 will move the parts through SCHUNK’s new material removal tool with a deburring brush, demonstrating better robot utilization by performing deburring tasks between loading and unloading.

The Twitter post about her husband being expelled for arguing with a robot referee is almost three years old. But with Automated Ball-Strike technology making its way to the Las Vegas Ballpark this week, Kathy Viola’s take held up well.

“Somehow my husband Frank Viola being the first ejection in TrackMan history doesn’t surprise me,” wrote the wife of the former World Series MVP, Cy Young Award winner. and former pitching coach for the Las Vegas 51, now in his third season as pitching coach for the High Point Rockers of the Independent Atlantic League.

The lefty laughed heartily on Thursday as he remembered his wife’s words.

“The very first game we used,” Viola said of throwing a clipboard in the air and being kicked out for arguing with — or at least about — the robo ump in 2019. “It wasn’t ready to be used in this situation yet.”

At the time, the home plate umpire was allowed to overrule TrackMan (which has been replaced by the more efficient Hawk-Eye system) if he thought the robot had made the wrong call, and that’s what had Viola thrown away.

“The machine malfunctioned but the home plate umpire did a terrible job letting us know who was in charge,” he said from baseball’s backcountry, where Las Chasen Bradford and Johnny Field Vegas are trying to get back into the majors.

Viola learned that the system used in Tuesday’s Aviators-Sacramento game appeared to be nearly 100% accurate. But he still has mixed feelings about robot umpires replacing humans behind home plate and further reducing arguments between managers (and pitching coaches) and umpires.

“That’s what people come to see – they come to see Wally Backman go crazy,” Viola said of the former 51 manager, who was known to have the occasional disagreement with men in blue who lived and breathed. .

– As he predicted, car owner Sam Schmidt of Henderson and drivers Pato O’ Ward, Felix Rosenqvist and Juan Pablo Montoya were a formidable force in last Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 where the trio finished second, fourth and 11th.

“By far the best field of drivers and teams we’ve had,” Schmidt said on his return to town after O’Ward narrowly missed in a checkered flag duel with race winner Marcus. Ericsson. “We were the only multicar team to finish all of our cars, and we had a chance” on the final lap, when O’Ward briefly edged Ericsson.

It was also a big week for Schmidt off the track. Arrow McLaren SP has signed O’Ward to a contract extension and 2016 Indy 500 winner Alexander Rossi will drive for the group next year, and his foundation has raised $1 million less than 30 $000 at its annual gala in Indianapolis.

Those interested in helping push the fundraising effort beyond the threshold can donate by visiting the Conquer Paralysis Now website (conquerparalysisnow.org).

– While Schmidt is chasing an Indy 500 title as a driver and car owner for 24 years, the leaders of the tour from Southern Nevada to Indianapolis are Bill Jansen and his wife, Nora. The Court of Justice judge (who has attended the race 55 times) and Ms Jansen (37 Indys) spent the morning of the race in the Gasoline Alley garage of their friend and racing legend AJ Foyt.

–In a May 15 report by RJ on Southern Nevada high school baseball lore, Cimarron-Memorial and Sierra Vista were omitted from a list of local high schools that produced major league talent. Former Cimarron pitchers Mike Dunn and Brad Thompson have World Series rings. As mentioned elsewhere in the report, Sierra Vista product Chris Carter is tied for the National League lead with 41 homers in 2016.
