Dyson unveiled six new products that bring together automation, advanced software, and intelligence with best-ever cleaning performance.
In the last year, there has been a significant reduction in the number of people maintaining regular cleaning schedules, yet we still spend 25 minutes a week, the equivalent of 65 hours per year, vacuuming our homes. Sensing, software, and automation sit at the heart of these new machines. By understanding surroundings and the task at hand, a product, whether a vacuum or purifier, can automatically respond to tackle the challenge most effectively. This starts with intelligent, accurate sensors and relies heavily on embedded software, electronics and automation, as well as core mechanical technologies like motors, filtration, and pick-up to tackle the task at hand, properly.
Enhanced sensors and software elevate the performance enabling a different, more efficient way of cleaning.
The Dyson 360 Vis Nav robot vacuum has sensors that detect the edges of a room, and redirect suction through a side-actuator for precision edge cleaning — solving one of the biggest challenges for any robot – edge cleaning. Its high-level processor thinks and adapts, capable of pinpointing its position to within 71mm.
Dyson cordless vacuum technology uses acoustic piezo sensors to count and categorise dust particles, informing owners via LCD screen when to move on, or continue cleaning. These readings also determine the suction power required for the task, automatically adjusting power levels.
The Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde has integrated sensors. A unique Dyson algorithm cross-checks data every second, analysing the air in the room, automatically switching on purification when pollutant levels rise, and switching off once the space is thoroughly cleaned. A unique solid-state sensor precisely detects formaldehyde, without being confused by other VOCs.
Software embedded in Dyson machines can help reduce owner frustration. Sensors in the Dyson Gen5detect vacuum monitor the motor’s speed, power and temperature. Alongside a re-engineered UI, this helps Owners to identify and troubleshoot potential issues, maintaining their machines independently. Over-the-air software updates ensure machines automatically upgrade to the latest features and fixes.
Dyson has been developing its own motor technology since 2004, investing more than EUR350M to date into research, laboratories, specialist teams and manufacturing capabilities.
Dyson’s fifth generation Hyperdymium motor is smaller, faster and more powerful than its predecessors, spinning at up at 135,000rpm — nine times faster than a Formula One engine. Powering the Dyson Gen5detect cordless vacuum, the fifth generation Dyson Hyperdymium motor drives powerful suction for high-quality cleaning performance, delivering 262 air watts of suction.
Separating particles from airflow or filtration, has been at the centre of Dyson products for 30 years. During that time, Dyson has invested in laboratories and test rigs that measure filtration efficacy not only of the filter as industry standards stipulate, but also at full-machine level, developing entirely new test methods in both floorcare and air purification. Dyson vacuums offer five stages of fully sealed filtration, from cyclonic separation in the vacuum bin, to the cyclone pack, filtration mesh and pre- and post-motor filters to effectively separate different sizes of debris. In Dyson Purifiers, three filters combine for highly effective indoor purification, trapping particles as small as 0.1 microns in a glass HEPA media, capturing gas pollutants and absorbing NO2, and continuously destroying formaldehyde at a molecular level.
HEPA H13 refers to a standard of filter made from HEPA media. Full-machine HEPA H13 filtration means that what goes in, stays in; it refers to the performance of the whole product – no leaky airflow pathways, no gaps allowing in dirty air, purified air exits the machine. The Dyson 360 Vis Nav robotic vacuum, Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde and Dyson HEPA Big+Quiet purifier are all tested to whole-machine HEPA H13 standard. The Dyson Gen5detect cordless vacuum and the latest Dyson purifiers are also proven to capture viruses.
The Dyson 360 Vis Nav robotic vacuum marks Dyson’s next step in intelligent robotic vacuum cleaners: the most powerful robot vacuum with six times the suction of any other. Engineered with unique Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) technology, the Dyson 360 Vis Nav has a 360-degree, vision system with fish-eye hemispheric lens which remembers where it has been, sees where to clean, and is intelligent enough to create dust maps of your home. The high-level processor collects data from 26 sensors for a range of tasks, including dust detection, obstacle avoidance and wall detection, to clean right to the edge.
It features a new, full-width triple-action brush bar: for hard floors, soft ‘Fluffy’ nylon for large debris pick-up and anti-static carbon fibre filaments to remove fine dust, and stiff nylon bristles to dig into carpets. Dual link suspension allows the machine to climb up to 21mm, and its low profile lets it clean under furniture up to 99mm. After its 50 minutes of run-time, the machine will automatically return to its dock to recharge. The MyDyson app provides deep cleaning reports after each clean.
The Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde is designed specifically for large, open-plan spaces, with the Dyson HEPA Big+Quiet purifier engineered specifically for simplicity in shared, commercial spaces. New Cone Aerodynamics delivers 10-metre projection and new CO2 sensor indicates when to ventilate. Alongside its powerful projection, the Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet is engineered to operate quietly, producing just 56 decibels of noise.
The five-year HEPA H13 particle filter traps up to 99.95% of ultrafine particles, whilst the new K-Carbon filter removes gas pollutants and 3x more NO2. The lifetime Selective Catalytic Oxidation filter destroys formaldehyde permanently. Sensors constantly monitor the indoor air quality, sending live data to the MyDyson app.
The Dyson Gen5detect cordless vacuum, features fifth generation Hyperdymium motor technology, delivering unrivalled suction power, capable of capturing viruses from your home. The machine features a fully sealed, whole-machine HEPA filtration system, engineered to capture 99.99% of particles down to 0.1 microns. 14 cyclones also remove dust from the airflow so there’s no loss of suction, ensuring optimal performance with every clean. A new Fluffy Optic cleaner head with increased brightness and range reveals twice the amount of microscopic dust, so you can see exactly where to clean. The fade-free, energy dense battery offers up to 70 minutes run-time.
The Dyson Submarine wet roller head, available with the Dyson V15s Detect Submarine and Dyson V12s Detect Slim Submarine vacuums, delivers just the right amount of water to effectively remove spills, stains, and small debris from hard floors. To achieve an optimum ‘clean floor’ finish without over saturating, the wet roller head has been engineered with an eight-point hydration system, using a pressurized chamber for even water distribution across the full width of the roller.
The motor-driven microfibre roller removes spills, tough stains and small debris, covering flooring up to 110sqm, thanks to a 300ml clean water tank. A durable plate extracts contaminated water from the wet roller and deposits it into a separate waste-water tank to ensure no dirt and debris is transferred back onto the floor. Designed with a low profile and full-width brush bar, the Dyson Submarine wet roller head allows for effortless maneuvering underneath furniture, cleaning dust, debris, and spills from even the most awkward places.
