Dyson launches ‘360 Eye’ robot vacuum cleaner in Japan.

Infrared sensors stop it bumping into furniture and users can set its cleaning schedule on a smartphone app – allowing them to start a clean even when out of the house. The 360 Eye will be available from Dyson’s flagship Omotesando store in Tokyo from this Friday (October 23rd) before hitting stores nationwide the following Monday. Dyson follows Miele, Samsung and LG into the robotic vacuum cleaning sector, but the company claims its 360-degree camera – which can see all around the room at once – is unique. ‘Vision, combined with our high speed digital motor and cyclone technology, is the key to achieving a high performing robot vacuum – a genuine labour saving device.’ Nick Schneider, a robotics design engineer at the firm, said: ‘This is a good example of how we will not release a technology until we are sure it will be a really high performer. ‘We were going to release the DC06 in 2001 but we decided to start again. The cost of Dyson’s new Eye 360 robot vacuum cleaner in Japan is ¥149,040 (approximately $1,200); and is ,thus, the most expensive robot vacuum cleaner currently available on the market.

The brush bar, which extends to full width of the machine, uses patented carbon fibre technology to remove fine dust on hard floors and has stiff nylon bristles to agitate and clean carpets. As it name suggests, the vacuum cleaner has the capability to constantly observe and analyze its surroundings, as it can see the entire room in which it is being operated.

The company says it also had to teach the robo-vac not to fall down genkan — a traditional Japanese entryway where shoes are removed and that are usually a step lower than the rest of the floor. It also detects objects and avoids obstacles ahead using proximity and infrared sensors Dyson’s robotic vacuum cleaner enters a market currently dominated by Roomba which makes circular autonomous cleaners.
