Dyson has launched a new robot vacuum cleaner: the Dyson 360 Vis Nav robot vacuum cleaner. This robot vacuum cleaner has a number of unique features, including edge cleaning.

Dyson 360 Vis Nav robot vacuum

The Dyson 360 Vis Nav is a smart robot vacuum cleaner that is equipped with Simultaneous Localization and mapping technology – SLAM for short – with which the robot vacuum cleaner has a 360-degree view. Hence the name of this new robot vacuum cleaner.

A big advantage is that the robot vacuum cleaner can remember exactly where it has been and where it still needs to vacuum. The robot vacuum cleaner creates – just like many iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaners do today – a virtual map of the home.

26 sensors under the hood

Under the hood of the Dyson 360 Vis Nav are 26 sensors that can detect dirt and avoid obstacles. There is also wall detection: this allows the robot vacuum cleaner to vacuum up to the edge. Something that is a problem for many robot vacuum cleaners.

The shape of the new Dyson robot vacuum cleaner is striking: where the old Dyson 360 Eye Heurist was still round, this 360 Vis Nav is D-shaped. It even looks a bit like the Neato D8 (see more in the Neato D8 review). Dyson probably won't have a problem with this same form: Neato Robotics stops producing robot vacuums.

Robot vacuum cleaner with parquet brush

Recently I wrote an extensive guide on how to vacuum wooden floors. In my manual I didn't say anything about robot vacuum cleaners, because they often don't have a parquet brush. That seems to be changing with the Dyson 360 Vis Nav: it is equipped with a soft fluffy brush. I came across these brushes during the Dyson Omni Glide review.

Although the new Dyson robot vacuum cleaner is equipped with a soft fluffy roller brush, it is not only suitable for wooden floors: thanks to the nylon bristles, it is also suitable for carpet. The vacuum cleaner can adjust the height above the ground. Did you know that there are also robot vacuum cleaners that excel at cleaning carpets? Check out the best robot vacuums for carpets here; these models often come with a turbo function that activates when on a carpet.
