Roombas will soon build a Wi-Fi coverage map while they clean

As the robot roams around your house cleaning, it will now periodically log the Wi-Fi signal strength throughout the house. The data will be saved in a new Wi-Fi coverage map, which will live inside the Roomba app alongside the cleaning coverage map. Wi-Fi mapping will launch later this month as part of an app update and will mark the launch of a new beta program for the Roomba app. – Ron Amadeo, Ars Technica http://ift.tt/2lNAGz0
