30 Years of Robotics Expertise and Innovation.

We design and build innovative home robots, including the Roomba® robot vacuum and the Braava® family of mopping robots. But our technology isn’t just about robots. It’s about you–and finding better ways to help you get more done.

Founded in 1990 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology roboticists with the vision of making practical robots a reality, iRobot has sold more than 40 million robots worldwide. The company has developed some of the world’s most important robots and has a rich history steeped in innovation. Its robots have revealed mysteries of the Great Pyramid of Giza, found harmful subsea oil in the Gulf of Mexico, and saved thousands of lives in areas of conflict and crisis around the globe. iRobot inspired the first Micro Rovers used by NASA, changing space travel forever, deployed the first ground robots used by U.S. Forces in conflict, brought the first self-navigating FDA-approved remote presence robots to hospitals and introduced the first practical home robot with Roomba, forging a path for an entirely new category in home cleaning. With more than 30 years of leadership in the robot industry, iRobot remains committed to building robots that provide people with smarter ways to clean and accomplish more in their daily lives.

 


In 2021, iRobot acquired air purification company, Aeris Cleantec.
