360 S9 Robot Vacuum and Mop – $599.99 at Amazon (Roughly £457.52)

The S9 Robot Vacuum and Mop from 360 comes equipped with ultrasonic and LiDAR dual-eye navigation which allows the device to easily map multiple floors in your house. The 5200 mAh battery provides up to three hours of use on a single charge and the S9 can mop as well when outfitted with a hands-free disposable mopping pad.

Like robot lawn mowers, robot vacuum cleaners are now a pretty common sight thanks to improvements in battery life, onboard smart capabilities and economies of scale. The 360 S9 is one of the newest models on the market and until the end of August 2020, it comes with a significant discount that makes it rather appealing should you be looking for a relatively affordable model that can mop and vacuum with aplomb.

The 360 S9 relies on three separate technologies to navigate around the rooms on its chore list; a traditional 2D map system that can store up to 10 floors, ultrasonic (roughly similar to how bats operate) and LIDAR (Laser imaging, detection, and ranging), a set of technologies that are pretty common in self-driving vehicles.
