About

Narwal is the world’s first robot mop & vacuum featuring innovative self-cleaning technology. With Narwal, you could have all the floor cleaning done without lifting a finger. 

Floor Cleaning 4.0 is here!

With groundbreaking self-cleaning technology, Narwal signals the start of a new era of fully automatic robot cleaner, where you can enjoy a truly hands-free floor cleaning experience

For years of evolution, floor cleaning with the robot still remains little more than a semi-automatic routine for us. The laborious manual works have only increased the time we spend doing cleaning and made the task more stressful. 


Narwal is here to make your life easier.  

While other robot mops have a small water reservoir plus a cloth that requires frequent removal for cleaning, our unique mop system features self-cleaning technology so you never have a dirty mop. The robot will wash, rinse and dry the mops automatically.

The base station has two-bucket system which separates waste water from clean water and includes a built-in pump to spray the water to the mops and a washboard to clean the mop. The full tank of 5L can cover a sizable space up to 2,150 ft² in 3 hours. 

The robot returns to the base station automatically when needed, where its mops get sprayed, scraped and squeezed on the washboard. And then it goes back to where it left off and continues mopping. The rinse water will be pumped into the waste water tank.   

A wet mop will breed bacteria! Not gonna to happen to Narwal! The ventilation system helps to dry up the mop when the mopping is done to prevent the damp and bacterium.

Most of the robot cleaners out there clean the floor by merely pushing or dragging the cleaning fabric around, which only makes it worse. Featuring 2 rounded triangle spin mops, Narwal prevails over traditional ones and easily captures fine dust and removes stains seamlessly.  

                                 Mopping test: efficiently removed stubborn stains.

Optimum spinning speed of the twin rotor and pressure make the cleaning virtually effortless. The ultra-fine microfiber mop pads ensure exceptional dirt removal and liquid absorption, yet gentle to the floor. 

Narwal can be your reliable vacuuming buddy too. For daily cleaning of surface debris, Narwal works wonders helping you maintain floors clean just like other standalone robot vacuums. 

Powered by a 1800Pa motor, its immense suction pressure effortlessly takes care of all dust, dirt, pet hair and everything else in your home. The two side brushes with intelligent speeds designed to clean every corner.   

With the technical background of DJI, Narwal boasts its smart mapping and navigation which allows the robot to adapt any environment to clean the room properly with ease. 

Lidar Navigation Technology

Narwal can learn the environment and figure out an optimized cleaning routine instead of aimlessly spinning around. The technologies of Lidar Navigation and the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) literally make Narwal smarter than ever. 

Monitor and Plan Cleaning with Narwal App

With the Narwal Robotics APP, you can adjust cleaning settings, customize the cleaning strategy, and monitor the cleaning status and more no matter where you are.

No-go Zone

With the mapping, you can define no-go zones to build virtual barriers for mopping or vacuuming as you wish through the APP. No-go zones can be stored for all future auto scheduled runs. 

Smart Sensors

What makes a robot cleaner robotic is the precision of the navigation sensors. With multiple smart sensors, the robot avoids obstacles with ease and tackles tough terrain effortlessly. 

When it knocks into something, its bumper retracts and the sensors tell the robot to find a clear path.

The cliff sensors help the robot sense the edges and avoid it falling from heights.

The wall sensors let the robot follow very closely along walls and around objects without touching them.  Narwal recognizes the carpet with the virtual walls around, which is the no-go zone preset via the App. 

Narwal delivers effective cleaning with a low noise output. It’s ideal for late-night cleaning or anyone who likes a bit of quiet time.

After a constant effort of 3 years, we have finally brought the idea of Narwal to life. Check out the Unboxing, Operation Guide and App demo videos below to take a closer look at Narwal.

As the campaign goes on, we’ll be sharing more review videos from our beta testers and reviewers. Stay tuned!

Stretch Goal #1 reached! Narwal will support Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, development is on its way! Help us reach Stretch Goal #2 to unlock the reward of a FREE Accessory Kit 1 to every Kickstarter backer!

Help us spread the word to your families, friends and people around you, and get 10% cash back on every successful referral you bring in. 

Learn how it works

Narwal Robotics is based in Shenzhen and Songshan Lake, China, invested and mentored by Mr. Li Zexiang, Mr. Gan Jie, and Mr. Ko Ping Keung.

Li Zexiang:Chairman of DJI & Googol tech and Co-founder of X-bot Park.

Gan Jie:Vice president of Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business and Co-founder of X-bot Park.

Ko Ping Keung:Founder of Celestry & Silicon Federation International and Co-founder of X-bot Park.

Cooperating with experts in physics, dynamics, algorithms and engineering, we have spent 3 years developing Narwal and built our own factory already. Narwal is an epoch-making product which is leading a revolution for floor cleaning.  


Risks and challenges

We’ve been developing this product for over 3 years. Narwal has successfully completed the prototypes, molding, pilot production process and over a year of beta testing with intensive daily floor cleaning tasks in our testers’ homes. It is now ready for mass production. With our current production capabilities, we should be able to produce the units sold on Kickstarter in 2-3 months after the campaign depends on the amount. We are still constantly receiving feedback from our testers, improving the product and adding more features to it as we go to make it even better!
