DXR 130 Robot: Smart Demolition RobotDXR 310 is our most powerful remote-controlled demolition robot with a telescopic arm, extending the reach for a flexible set-up. Despite its low weight and compactness it delivers a power of 22 kW, making it ideal for efficient demolition in tough environments. The outriggers are individually controlled, and combined with a large footprint, provide superior stability, which enables high workload.

Ero Robot: Smart Demolition RobotReinforced concrete consists of concrete poured on a mesh of steel rebar. This provides a great deal of strength, but it also makes demolition a slow, difficult process involving a great deal of smashing, bashing, and crushing. This brute force method is even used by advanced demolition robots that rely on jack hammers and shovels. The end result is a process that requires huge amounts of power, lengthy separation of crushed concrete and twisted rebar, and the machinery and transportation to achieve this.

Xiaomi Robot: Vacuum Cleaner RobotThe general design of the Mi Robot Vacuum isn't too far off from many existing offerings. At the bottom you'll find two circular side brushes that help sweep dirt into the main cylindrical brush. To boost suction, the machine automatically adjusts its height for a tighter seal with the floor. It walks around using its two main rubber wheels plus an assistive wheel, and is aided by ultrasonic radar sensors, wall sensors, collision sensors, cliff sensors and drop sensors.
