ICE Cobotics Back in Robotics with Cobi 18 Launch

ICE Cobotics announced today, at Interclean Amsterdam, the launch of Cobi 18, a compact autonomous scrubber drier available through an all-inclusive subscription.

Designed by cleaning professionals, Cobi 18 has a very powerful scrubbing function and is easy to use. The user interface is clear and simple. And with the “learn and repeat” function, users can practice a route once and repeat it over and over at the touch of a button. In addition to being easy to use, Cobi 18 is an all-inclusive subscription program that is affordable with a starting fee of less than €20 per day.

Cobi 18 can be used in many locations due to size

Simon Chen, CEO of ICE Cobotics said: “Cobi 18 is the first autonomous scrubber drier that can be widely deployed for commercial use. Its compact size makes it suitable for any location, and its intuitive interface is suitable for users of all levels. Add to that our affordable subscription and automation at ICE Cobotics is now within reach.”

Cobi 18: Smart solution

Cobi 18 has been specially designed to excel in scrubbing all types of hard floors. Its main features are:

“Charge and fill once” for 90 to 120 minutes of scrubbing

Compact and manuverable, optimized for cleaning tight spaces and around room edges

Squeegee and dry mop as optional accessories to ensure dry floors

Minimal daily maintenance thanks to a double tank that can be easily emptied, cleaned and filled

Side brushes and a container to help collect light waste

Simple and reliable automation

Cobi 18's advanced artificial intelligence integrates data from various sensors to get a clear view of the environment and safely navigate around obstacles, even in challenging environments with mirrors, elevators or bright sunlight.

Cobi 18 is easy to start and operate. The operating modes are:

Teach and Repeat - Teach Cobi 18 a route once and then he can perform it independently

Fill-in Mode – Mark out the perimeter of an area and Cobi 18 automatically fills in the inside

Consecutive routes (Route Sequence) – Let Cobi 18 execute two pre-programmed routes in succession

Delayed Start – Let Cobi 18 start its route at a preset time

Furthermore, thanks to its simple user interface, intermediate charging options and saved route maps, Cobi 18 can be easily programmed. The machine can be used several times a day at the touch of a button for reliable and consistent cleaning. While Cobi 18 cleans the floors, professional cleaners can spend their time on other important tasks, which may otherwise be skipped due to time pressure and increased workload.

Simplified cleaning management: insight into real-time data with Cobi 18

ICE Cobotics' i-SYNERGY fleet management software makes it easy for managers and end users to manage, monitor and understand cleaning performance in real-time data.

Managers using i-SYNERGY's Clean Score method can remotely check the stage of cleaning activities at any location they manage, saving them time and energy. Clean Score is easy to use and provides managers with a simple color coding system that allows them to immediately see which locations are on schedule for the day and which locations may need additional support. In other words, each managed location is scored based on the cleaning activities performed that day.

This is a major advantage for managers as they can access real-time data, review progress against the goals they have set, and view a summary report based on the goals set.

A carefree, all-inclusive subscription

The ICE Cobotics subscription program makes it easier than ever for companies to implement automation: from less than €20 per day with a 3-year contract. In addition to Cobi 18, the subscription includes access to i-Synergy fleet management software, repairs and replacement parts as needed, customer support, and essential consumables (ie brushes, nozzles).

Alexander Schless, CEO for the EMEA region said: “With ICE Cobotics' unique subscription model, we support our industry through fixed cost calculations with no surprises. It also supports adaptive fleet and asset management on our part, so that no capital assets are idle in basements. In addition, through this model we guarantee maximum yield and optimized project-specific equipment that can be adapted to customer needs at any time.
