Dyson’s Robot vacuum

The 360 Eye: Dyson’s Roomba Killer – Businessweek.

Dyson, the maker of bagless vacuums that famously won’t lose suction, is releasing its first robotic model that it vows will be more powerful, effective, and intelligent than Roomba (IRBT) most other smart floor cleaners.

It took 16 years and $47 million to develop the Dyson 360 Eye, according to the company, and a version intended for launch in 2001 was shelved when executives weren’t satisfied with its performance. In the intervening 13 years, the company was able to vastly reduce the number of infrared sensors. Using eight sensors and a quick-snapping 360-degree camera, the 360 Eye can map out a detailed floor plan to navigate a room.
