Dyson will be announcing the Dyson 360 Eye today. Formerly known as Dyson Project N223, the Dyson 360 Eye has been 16 years in the making.
The Dyson 360 Eye robot is an intelligent robot that has the most powerful suction of any robot on the market, capturing more dirt than any other robot in one pass. It combines the latest Dyson digital motor and Root Cyclone technology to separate dust and dirt, capturing particles down to 0.5 microns - that's 600 times smaller than the dot at the end of this sentence.
The Dyson 360 Eye has a vision system that can actually see with it's 360 degree panoramic camera. According to Dyson, it can differentiate a sofa from a stair case and it captures 30 frames per second to create a virtual map of a room and can pinpoint where it's been and what it needs to clean next. But navigation is only half the story. According to Dyson, the 360 Eye actually uses complex algorithms to calculate decisions while it cleans and it can prioritize areas based on time, area covered and complexity, so it will start cleaning the easiest surfaces first. When it's battery starts to run low, it can recharge itself and then continue where it left off. It also has all-terrain continuous tank tracks that allow it to maintain speed and direction across all floor types from hardwood floors to plush carpet. The beater bar extends the full width of the machine, and it has carbon fiber filaments that remove fine dust from the floor as well.
