dyson to develop robots capable of household chores in the next five years

Dyson has revealed a series of prototype robots that it is currently developing and announced its plans to hire hundreds of engineers over the next five years to manufacture robots that can do household chores.

Dyson to Make Robots for Household Chores

According to The Verge, the machines are made with fine motor skills, and they have arms capable of lifting plates out of a drying rack, lifting up toys, and capable of vacuuming a sofa.

Dyson, best known for its wide range of vacuum cleaners, says that it aims to develop an autonomous device that can do household chores and other tasks.

According to The Guardian, the Dyson device could be released by 2030. It comes over half a decade after the tech company released its first robotic device, the Dyson 360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner, back in 2014.

Dyson has emphasized its interest in artificial intelligence and robotics to underpin its future products.

The announcement was made just in time for the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Philadelphia. It serves as a recruitment tool with a prominent “Start Your Dyson Career” link placed near the top of its press release.

The tech company says it is in the middle of the largest engineering recruitment drive in its history. It is currently recruiting 250 robotics engineers with expertise in computer vision, sensors, machine learning, and mechatronics, and it hopes to hire 700 more over the next five years.

The company also revealed that it has already added 2,000 new employees to its workforce in 2022.

Dyson is also building out what it hopes will be the U.K.’s largest robotics research center. The center will be based at Hullavington Airfield near the company’s design center in Malmesbury. Wiltshire, where it is refitting an aircraft hanger where 250 robotics will work.

The site had previously been earmarked for the development of the company’s electric car before the project was shut down in 2019. The research will also take place in a laboratory in London and at the company’s headquarter in Singapore.

Jake Dyson, the company’s chief engineer and son of the company founder James Dyson, said that this project is a big bet on the future of robotic technology.

They hope that this will drive research across the company in areas including vision systems, mechanical engineering, energy storage, and machine learning.

In 2020, the company announced its plans to invest £2.75 billion or $3.45 billion in new motor tech, robotics, and machine learning software by 2025. It also plans to spend £600 million or $750 million of that investment in 2022.

In 2021, Dyson revealed the patent of its stair-climbing vacuum robot.

Dyson’s Investments

Dyson revealed that its latest investment would span the United Kingdom, Singapore, and the Philippines. In the U.K., the new areas of study will focus on developing A.I. and advanced robotics, according to Engadget.

The company’s chief executive Roland Krueger said that it was the start of a new chapter in its development. He said that they would continue with the expansion of their operations in the U.K., South East Asia, and Singapore as an essential step in their future development.

Krueger added that now is the time to invest in new technologies like energy storage, software, and robotics, which will drive performance and sustainability in their products for the benefit of their customers.
