Dyson’s 360 Vis Nav robot vacuum promises industry-leading suction

Dyson unveils Vis Nav robot vacuum

 

Dyson’s new 360 Vis Nav robot vacuum cleaner promises six times more suction than competitors.

Vis Nav, Dyson’s first robot vacuum cleaner, has been awaited for a very long time. It was unveiled in Singapore in conjunction with the initial launch of Dyson wares that will be landing in Australia. Dyson launched its last robot vacuum in 2020, the Dyson 360 Heurist.

The cleaner is still powerful even though the flagship products like the Roborock S8 Ultra or Ecovacs Deebots X1 Omni are a step ahead in terms of navigation, self cleaning, and mopping.

Dyson chose to focus on the powerful cleaning of the 360 Vis Navi – enabled through a Hyperdymium Motor that can spin up to 110,000rpm when in use. But they have also improved the intelligence here.

The new Simultaneous Mapping and Localization (SLAM), 360-degree Vision, and a Fisheye Lens and 8 LED Sensors allow it to know where it has already been covered. Its D-shape with 26 obstacle sensors makes it much better at handling edges.

Dyson's Vis Nav robot vacuum delivers powerful suction

The 360 Vis Nav features the same dust-detecting technology as Dyson’s V15 cordless vacuum. A piezo sensor detects dust levels, and adjusts suction power automatically.

Triple-action brush bars also play a role in providing an effective clean on multiple surfaces. Dyson says that the brush bar includes a soft nylon bristle to pick up larger debris on hard surfaces, a carbon fiber filament with anti-static properties to remove dust, and stiffer nylon brushes to dig deep into carpets.

The suction power seems to be affecting battery life. The 360 Vis Nav has a runtime of around 50 minutes. It will then return to its dock to charge and pick up the things again when it is fully charged.

It’s not cheap either, as you might expect from Dyson. The US/UK pricing and availability are still pending, but the AUD $2399 price tag would put it on par with the most expensive options available – even without the raft of extra features.

Watch this space for more information on the 360 Vis Nav – we expect a full release later in the year.
