This revolutionary method for vacuuming is based on augmented reality

If you are one of those who vacuum, instead of entrusting this task to a robot, you will love the new technology developed by Dyson, which is based on augmented reality. This is based on augmented reality and saves time, by not vacuuming the same place twice, and by helping the user to identify surfaces that have not yet been cleaned.

Augmented reality for cleaning

The most advanced robot vacuums, like the Dyson 360 Vis Nav, know exactly where they have already been and where they have not yet been. This helps optimize cleaning. For their part, humans can easily get lost and vacuum the same place twice or forget to clean certain areas. To assist users of its Dyson Gen5detect vacuum cleaner, Dyson has developed CleanTrace technology based on augmented reality on smartphones, in order to provide visual indicators in real time.

“Unlike most humans who clean, Dyson robots know where they are in the room, where they have been, and where they still need to go. With the Dyson CleanTrace, we add that extra layer of cleaning intelligence to the Gen5detect vacuum cleaner. It gives you the ability to see where you've cleaned and where you haven't, which, combined with our built-in particle detection technology, proves that the floor is truly clean”, says Charlie Park, vice president of engineering at Dyson Home.

Available June

< p>Dyson plans to offer this new feature to users of its Dyson Gen5detect vacuum cleaner from June. However, according to our colleagues at Zdnet, you would need to have a smartphone equipped with a LIDAR sensor to take advantage of it. Unfortunately, this sensor, which is found on the Pro models of the iPhone, is still very rare.
In any case, Dyson justifies the creation of this functionality by the fact that people have the the impression of spending a lot of time vacuuming, based on a study. The company also noticed people's lack of efficiency when performing this task.

  • Dyson unveils a augmented reality-based technology, which allows users to save time when vacuuming
  • In essence, for users of the Gen5detect vacuum cleaner, the company will offer a smartphone feature that will indicate which surfaces have already been cleaned
  • L The objective is to prevent users from passing through the same place twice, and to indicate which surfaces have not yet been cleaned
  • The functionality will be available in June, but it might be limited to a small list of smartphones
