Home robotics specialists ECOVACS ROBOTICS has celebrated three years in Australia with the launch of a new robotic vacuum cleaner – the DEEBOT OZMO T8.

The newest member of its T8 series of robot vacuums, the DEEBOT OZMO T8 delivers millimetre-level obstacle detection and avoidance with new TrueDetect 3D technology.

ECOVACS, now recognised as a global leader in robotic vacuums, is also releasing an Auto-Empty Station which is being offered separately in combination to form the ‘T8+’ bundle.

The DEEBOT OZMO T8 is the first DEEBOT product to include proprietary TrueDetect 3D technology that features advanced obstacle avoidance.

And with TrueMapping laser-based mapping and navigation technology, the DEEBOT OZMO T8 can map homes with four times the accuracy of previous models.

Working alongside its OZMO Mopping System, the DEEBOT OZMO T8 offers precise water control so users do not over-wet floors and is smart enough to automatically avoid carpets when the mopping pad is installed.

Bold commitment

Since launching in Australia in late 2017, ECOVACS has delivered innovations in intelligent and connected home service robotics.

“We made a bold commitment upon launching in Australia just three short years ago that we would change and grow the robot vacuum category by delivering an ever-evolving, best-in-class cleaning experience.” said Karen Powell, Head of ECOVACS ROBOTICS for Australia and New Zealand.

“Over the last three years we have dedicated our efforts to promoting and educating Australians’ views about what they should expect in a robot vacuum in both performance and features.

“We have integrated it into their smart home, made it easy to control from their phone, driven industry-leading innovation in mapping and mopping and delivered even longer battery life.”


Features include:

  • TrueDetect 3D advanced obstacle avoidance technology for uninterrupted cleaning: 

TrueDetect uses 3D structured light technology to detect, avoid and clean around furniture and objects like shoes, cords and small toys. It precisely scans for depth and distance to create a fast and accurate 3D image of space and objects, down to the millimetre level. Its object detection is 10X more accurate than traditional infrared technology.

  • TrueMapping precision mapping and navigation technology for thorough and efficient cleaning:

TrueMapping scans, maps and plans an efficient cleaning path faster and more precisely, to prevent missed or repeated areas. The laser mapping and navigation technology uses direct time-of-flight (dToF) laser sensors for 2X greater range (up to 10m) and 4X greater accuracy, detecting objects as small as 2mm. The precise maps enable advanced custom cleaning like unlimited boundaries (keep-out areas), support for multiple floors, and cleaning by room or area.DEEBOT OZMO T8+_03

  • OZMO Mopping System for vacuuming and mopping

Automatic carpet detection avoids carpets when mopping to keep them from getting wet.

  • Up to three hours of runtime

The 5200mAh lithium ion battery can easily clean a home that is more than 300 sqm on a single charge.
