The Emerging Trends in the Use of AI in Janitorial Services

It has been a while since the AI-powered robot janitors we’re introduced which perform all the cleaning services just like a human janitor, but they add the element of no fatigue and therefore increased efficiency. Although such robots became crazily popular in the western corporate world, they had many drawbacks. The robots had lesser powered processors, RAM, etc. which caused them to struggle in getting the directions right. As a result, many times the robots would bang into the walls of the rooms whilst cleaning. Besides this, the robots also had a limited range of motion due to which they couldn’t clean the extreme corner areas.

So, the drawbacks of these existing robot janitors led to more research and development in this field, and today we can see the following trends emerging in this field which can be a blessing for all of us:

  • Improved navigation systems to identify obstacles and improvements in AI algorithms to perceive things that can cause accidental falls like slippery surfaces, rug tassels, etc.

  • Pre-planned 3D mapping of the areas to be cleaned by the automated janitors is done and installed in the janitor to avoid misdirection and inability to follow the structure of the building.

  • A time-bound schedule is planned and programmed in the Robot janitors to ensure that the entire process of cleaning is done within the stipulated time.

  • Certain companies have also gone ahead of others and installed 360° vision enabled cameras in the robot janitors, and have infused them with the robot’s structural algorithm which guides its movements and activities. What this has done, is it has given the robots an amazing human-like ability to see and deduce the consequences of various potential actions.
