Dyson launches first mobile-controlled 'robotic vacuum cleaner'

London: A British company, Dyson, has launched its first robotic vacuum cleaner, which can be controlled by a mobile and has a 360-degree "eye" to navigate itself around a room.

The product, which uses infrared sensors and a panoramic camera lens that can take up to 30 images of the room every second to locate itself, has 20 to 30 minutes of battery life and moves around on tank-like tracks, the Daily Express reported.

The company founder James Dyson, said that unlike other "gimmick" robotic vacuum cleaner s, the '360 Eye' with its vision combined with the high speed digital motor and cyclone technology, is a genuine labour saving device.

The new machine, known until now as Project N223, which is powered by a V2 Dyson digital motor to separate dust and dirt, followed 28 million pounds worth of research and took a team of more than 200 Dyson engineers to develop.
