In October of last year iRobot, the leader in consumer robots, announced a collaboration with Google to advance the next-generation smart home:

“With Imprint™ Smart Mapping, the Roomba i7+ remembers multiple floor plans and room names so users can customize cleaning jobs. Using the Google Assistant, users can also direct the robot to clean a specific room with a simple voice command, like ‘Hey Google, clean the kitchen’.
Working together, iRobot and Google will seek additional ways to integrate their platforms, providing customers with the choice to opt in to new innovative smart home experiences that leverage a broader understanding of the home’s space. For example, the spatial awareness of the home that Roomba maintains may help to simplify smart home setup and enable powerful new automations.”
