IMOU RV-L11-A: Features 

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology

The RV-L11-A can map a room with incredible precision to ensure efficient cleaning every time. The mapping camera spins six times per second, measuring the distance to 2,016 different points in the room, with a measuring range of 26 feet and a scanning frequency of 6 rotations per second. In addition, it features a multichannel sensor system and utilises smart algorithms that enable it to create the most efficient path to avoid obstacles and glide effortlessly under furniture, ensuring no spot is left untouched. It's intelligent enough to detect when it's on carpets and automatically increase its suction power for more effective cleaning.

3-in-1 cleaning system

The IMOU RV-L11-A is not just a robot vacuum but also a mopping device. It features a 300ml dust bin, a 250ml water tank and a mop cloth holder, making it a helpful and versatile cleaning tool. With a powerful motor with 2700pa suction power, and a V-shape brush roller, the vacuum can effortlessly pick up dirt, debris and pet hair, leaving floors spotless. The electronically controlled water tank can also be adjusted through the app to control water usage for each individual room’s atmosphere (for example, low water usage in the bedroom, medium in the living room and high in the kitchen).


Convenience is prioritised with the robot vacuum as it provides smart, hands-free cleaning with Auto Dirt Disposal. This ensures users only have to worry about emptying the dirt disposal base every 30 days as it effortlessly disposes of dust and debris automatically into its self-empty station, keeping rooms clean and fresh without the hassle.

Integrated app

Cleaning schedules and preferences are made easy when connecting to the IMOU app. Through this, schedules can be set and tailored to each zone in the room, or users can simply let the device roam freely, with full control at the user’s fingertips. 

Smart charging

When the RV-L11-A is low on power, it returns to the charging station to recharge autonomously, leaving little to no thought needed for cleaning. Once fully charged, it resumes cleaning right where it left off, ensuring a consistently clean home.
