A domobot is a domotic microbot. Domotic means connected to a home automation network, and microbot means a mobile robot with a microcontroller - typically a PIC.

Domobots can be connected to a domotic controller (a computer or similar device) through a cable (USB port) or wirelessly (usually through a WiFi port). They are mostly used for domestic work, such as vacuum-cleaning, and transporting objects around the house to wash or iron them, etc.

A domobot is not the same as a home robot. For example, the Roomba ( ) is a home robot but not a domobot, because it does not have a port (e.g. WiFi or USB) to connect it to the domotic network.
