iRobot Corporation was founded in 1990 by Helen Greiner, Colin Angle and Rodney Brooks. Working together as roboticists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, they understood that robots could help perform dull, dirty or dangerous missions with better results.
Innovation has been the key driver in iRobot’s success and growth. IRobot has developed proprietary technologies that enhance mobility, navigation, manipulation and artificial intelligence. By integrating software, hardware and electronics, iRobot builds robots that are easy to use, cost-effective, safe and durable.
iRobot has sold over 1.5 million Roomba Vacuuming Robots and the Scooba Floor Washing Robot is poised to be another smash hit. IRobot has over 258 full time employees of which 120 are engineers specializing in the design of robots. The combination of best-in-talent, top-of-the-line consumer marketing and, of course, amazingly cool robots has made iRobot the acknowledged leader in the emerging home-robotics category.
