Sweeping, repairing, cleaning, vacuuming... Will our daily household chores soon be done by robots?
Yes, if we are to believe the latest information from
Dyson would thus have created an entire division within his company to develop prototypes of robots intended to perform these different tasks.
On Wednesday, the English firm published a video explaining part of this project still considered "top secret".
Today, at @ieee_ras_icra, Dyson gives a glimpse into the future of household robots for the first time.
From manipulation and robot learning, to visual perception and compliant control…
Intrigued by what you see?

700 specialized engineers wanted
In these images, we can see a robot in the process of putting away plates while another brings a cup of coffee, puts away a doll or even vacuums the cushions of a sofa while mapping it.
"Does that mean I'll never find crisps on my couch again?"
jokes Jake Dyson while chatting with an engineer.
With the aim of going even further in this field, Dyson is currently looking for 700 engineers specialized in robotics.
"There is a great future for robotics," adds the founder's son.
For him, this should “save people time”.
Jake Dyson is betting a lot on these robots capable of detecting their environment but also of mapping humans using sensors, a thermal engineering system or even using cameras.
“One thing is certain with robots, they are the future of the brand,” he concludes.
