Dyson 360 Eye™ robot coming in 2015…..
Dyson has unveiled a robot vacuum cleaner, the 360 Eye, which navigates using a 360-degree vision system and can be programmed using an iPhone or Android smartphone.
Most existing robot vacuum cleaners rely on bumpers, which prevent them from bumping into walls and furniture by reversing or changing their path accordingly. Some newer models also have forward-looking infrared sensors to detect obstacles.
However, the Dyson 360 Eye vacuum has a 360-degree vision system that allows it to ‘see’ its environment and build a detailed floor plan to systematically navigate around a room and track its position.
