Advancing the state of the art for home vacuum cleaner technology, LG Electronics (LG) showcased its new KOMPRESSOR® FOLLOW ME vacuum, a canister unit featuring technology that enables it to automatically follow the user while operational, and the latest HOM-BOT, LG’s flagship robotic vacuum cleaner, at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show.
“The new KOMPRESSOR® FOLLOW ME offers all the advantages of its former Lightweight KOMPRESSOR® Vacuum (LcV800R), with added innovations that enhance user convenience. Through its automatic movement and dust compression technology, the KOMPRESSOR® FOLLOW ME enables a more convenient and efficient cleaning experience,” said Moon-bum Shin, Executive Vice President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Appliance Company. “In addition, LG’s HOM-BOT robotic vacuum is packed with innovative technology in its circular body, including a unique combination of dual cameras and ultrasonic and infrared sensors to help make cleaning an effortless job while minimizing collisions.”
KOMPRESSOR® FOLLOW ME with Automated Moving Technology
LG’s new bagless vacuum cleaner mirrors the user’s movements, so consumers no longer need to constantly carry the canister from room to room when vacuuming. Using Automatic Location Recognition Technology and Active Following Wheel Technology, the vacuum cleaner uses four interconnected sensors located on its body and handle to monitor and maintain a comfortable distance of approximately 3.3 feet from the user. Sensors installed on the body automatically detect the handle’s movement. Following detection, the sensors trigger the Active Following Wheel Technology to enable effortless, smooth and paced movement in accordance with the user.
The KOMPRESSOR® FOLLOW ME is equipped with LG’s patented KOMPRESSOR® technology, which uses a motorized dust compression system within the bagless bin to compress dust intake. This technology also reduces messy dust clouds when emptying the dustbin. Additionally, this model features LG’s unique multi-layer filter to enhance air quality and reduce noise levels to 58dB for less obtrusive operation.
