iRobot sues Hoover and Black & Decker over robo-vacuums
Hoover launched its first robo-vacuum - the Quest 1000 - last year, while Black & Decker only unveiled its Smartech robot range at the CES trade show in January, and has yet to put them on sale. Shenzhen Silver Star Intelligent Technology - a Chinese firm that manufactures the robot vacuums sold by Hoover and Black & Decker. Suzhou Real power - a Chinese company that makes replacement parts for Hoover. This is not the first time iRobot has gone to the courts over an intellectual property dispute. It sued four German companies over related claims in 2013.
