Roomba 980 uses a high-efficiency cleaning pattern that uses its built in camera with advanced computer vision algorithms, this is wifi operated, that records the places/surroundings around the house. Once it bumps into something it will in just a few seconds it will processes if it is an obstacle or something that needs to be avoided. The downside is that it does not work in total darkness since it is using its computer vision to navigate throughout the area. Another downside is that it requires app from your phone (compared to using a physical remote) that needs to be downloaded.
