Our editorial team selected the robot vacuum cleaners on this list based on extensive research, real customer reviews and personal experience. For each category, we carefully selected parameters based on our research and identified the products with the highest review score within those parameters.
Xiaomi was chosen by consumers as the best-rated robot vacuum cleaner brand in the 2019/20 Finder Retail Awards. And with the Roborock S6 Pure receiving an average score of 4.6 out of 5 from almost 100 customer ratings on productreview.com.au, it's our pick as the best overall robot vacuum cleaner.
The Roborock S6 Pure uses a laser navigation system to map your home. It also splits your home into multiple areas so you can program cleanups for different zones. You can use the Roborock app to set up exclusion zones where you don't want the vacuum to go, and this model can clean up to 300 square metres on one charge. It also features a 180mL water tank and adjustable water flow for when you need it to mop your floor.
We chose the Xiaomi Mi as the best budget-friendly option for a few reasons. It's priced at less than $400, it has an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 from more than 200 productreview.com.au ratings, and Xiaomi was chosen by consumers as the best-rated robot vacuum cleaner brand in the 2019/20 Finder Retail Awards.
Featuring 12 sensors that map the layout of your home, this handy little device offers up to 2.5 hours of vacuuming with each charge. The brush height is adjusted automatically depending on the surface being cleaned, and the vacuum can sync with your smartphone to allow for easy programming.
If you've got a big budget, the iRobot Roomba i7+ is well worth a look. With plenty of positive reviews from customers on The Good Guys, Harvey Norman and others, it's been well received by consumers.
The i7+ uses mapping technology and visual landmarks to navigate its way around your home. It features dual multi-surface brushes and auto dirt disposal to help you save time when keeping your home clean. It also comes with an edge sweeping brush to help access those hard-to-reach areas.
If you've got a dog or a cat, the Eufy Robovac 11S is an affordable option that can help pick up the pet hair around your home. It boasts plenty of positive reviews from customers on retailers like Appliances Online and Dick Smith, and it comes with all the key features you need to keep your home clean.
Featuring a slim design to help it fit under furniture, the Robovac 11S offers up to 1300Pa of suction power to help pick up pet hair and dirt. It also features a triple filter system, a 0.6L dust box and four side brushes.
Boasting plenty of positive reviews from customers on Appliances Online and JB Hi-Fi, the Deebot Ozmo 950 is worth checking out if you're searching for a vacuum to keep your carpet looking its best.
Offering both vacuuming and mopping capabilities, this model automatically detects when it is on carpet and offers a power boost for more effective performance.

The Vorwerk Kobold VR200 features an average score of 4.3 out of 5 from more than 75 Godfreys customers. It also features a unique shape and side sensors to help it clean corners and other tight areas.
The VR200's low profile allows it to get under furniture as low as 9cm, while it's also capable of navigating floor height changes of up to 2cm. It uses continuous 360-degree mapping, has anti-collision and anti-fall sensors, and has a running time of up to 90 minutes.
Robot vacuum cleaners appear like they're roaming around your house aimlessly sometimes, cleaning away the dust that they stumble upon. But in actuality, the technology behind the roaming is quite refined – the machine does have an understanding of where it is and where it has been.
With systems varying between cliff sensors, bump sensors, wall sensors and optical encoders, the technology has the capacity to recognise walls and edges. Most robot vacuum cleaners can also determine how far they've travelled, which direction they've travelled and how long they can clean for before returning to the base to charge.
There are countless videos on YouTube of robot vacuum cleaners taking a fall down a flight of stairs, not having detected the edge of the floor until the last moment. While amusing to watch, it's entirely inconvenient and can cost you a fair bit if the vacuum breaks.
Thankfully, most robot vacuum cleaners now come equipped with edge detection technology and infra-red sensors that prevent your new friend from taking a tumble. These sensors bounce off the floor, measuring the distance between the unit and the surface, enabling the vacuum to recognise when it's nearing an edge so that it can adjust its course.
