We will give you a detailed tour through the hardware and software components of the Xiaomi vacuum robot (generation 1). We will also publish a non-invasive method to get root access to your vacuum robot.
After talking about the rooting procedure, we will discuss the internals of the robot. For example, the robot uses a so called SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) system with LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) and various other sensors to create maps of your apartment. These maps are used, among other things, to calculate the best cleaning path. We will show you what these maps look like and how they are stored in the robot. At the end, we will discuss which data are created and uploaded to the vendor, and why this may be a big privacy issue. We will also prove why it is a bad idea to leave IoT devices in an unconfigured state.
