Say hello to Miele Scout RX1 robot vacuum. It joins a growing group of automatic vacs from Roomba, LG, and Neeto.

I see, I clean

One of the most interesting sensors on the Miele Scout Rx1 is a digital camera that faces the ceiling.

A familiar underbelly

If you think the bottom of the Scout Rx1 looks familiar you'd be right. It could be a splitting image of one of iRobot's older Roomba models. The machine sports two side brushes instead of just one though.

Remove the tray

Like many other robovacs, the Scout RX1 has a removable crescent-shaped dust tray on its back side.

Smarter, better cleaning

According to Miele, the Scout RX1 uses its sensors and camera to vacuum more efficiently.
