Dreametech exhibits new robot sweeper, quadruped, and other items at IFA 2023

Dreametech has been expanding aggressively into overseas markets, with its revenue from abroad jumping almost 60% year on year in 2022.

Dreametech, a versatile technology company making home appliances and personal electronics, has put on display a number of its products at the IFA 2023 in Berlin, representing the firm’s stepped-up drive to showcase its technologies and innovations to the world audience.

Among the exhibits from Dreametech this time is its new-generation sweeping robot DreameBot L20 Ultra.

This robot vacuum is equipped with Dreametech’s MopExtend technologies. This unique innovation allows the robot to extend a bionic mechanical arm when it moves close to the edges of rooms.

The arm will push the cleaning pads out, to within 2mm of the edges, enabling better disposal of food, hair, dust and stain in hard-to-reach corners.

DreameBot L20 Ultra contains an auto-charging and emptying refill dock station, where the robot can empty its dust bin, replace the cleaning pads, discharge and refill water and heat the pads.

The dock station has a 3.2L built-in anti-bacteria pouch, which is big enough to store dust accumulated over 75 days.

The sweeping robot also has other notable functions, ranging from a 7,000 Pa suction power to carpet cleaning options, and from AI-driven obstacle avoidance to night-vision enhanced lighting.

It seeks to free users from having to soil their hands to clean up rooms.

Aside from the launch of sweeping robot, Dreametech also displayed other robotics products, in particular its first-ever borderless robotic mower A1.

Innovative approach to mapping

Contrary to traditional robotic mowers, which require ultra-wideband (UWB) signal generators and real-time kinematics (RTK) base stations to send out signals, A1 can be used fresh out of the box and independently of the upfront preparation.

The 3D precision lidars mounted on the device have a range of up to 70 m, with a 360°*59° field of view, allowing the robot to create an accurate 3D map of the yard or lawn in a timely fashion.

Dreametech, which defines itself as a robotic company in the broader sense of the word, announced its entry a year ago into quadrupedal robotics with its legged robot DreameDog.

The robot dog also made an appearance at the IFA 2023 and proved to be a smash hit. With its resemblance to the real creature, the quadruped has 15 degrees of freedom and can imitate different types of bionic postures thanks to coordination between its head and torso.

The gadget contains a real-time sensing system covering fives dimensions, such as spatial, visual, audio, tactile and kinematics.

Aggressive overseas expansion

Dreametech has been expanding aggressively into overseas markets, with its revenue from abroad jumping almost 60% year on year in 2022. Sales from Nordic markets recorded a staggering 700% increase during the same period.

In 2023, Dreametech has continued the growth momentum. In the first seven months of this year, its sales in markets outside China rocketed 110% from the same period last year.
