Dyson boosts its robotic ambitions

Dyson revealed his “master plan” to bring advanced robotics in our homes by the end of the decade. Announced at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Philadelphia, the tech company previewed its secret robot prototypes that perform household chores.

As part of its ambitious plans, Dyson wants to create the UK’s largest and most advanced robotics center at Hullavington Airfield, and is looking for the world’s brightest robotics engineers to join the team.

“Dyson employed its first roboticist 20 years ago and this year alone we are looking for 250 additional experts for our team,” says Dyson chief engineer Jake Dyson, who leads secret R&D work at Hullavington airfield in Wiltshire. “This is a ‘big bet’ on future robotics technology that will drive research across Dyson, in areas including mechanical engineering, vision systems, machine learning and storage. of energy. We need the best people in the world to join us now.

Made famous for its eponymous vacuum cleaners, Dyson has signaled it’s going beyond floor-standing robotic vacuums. In a film released on social media, the company revealed the latest development of robotic hands designed by Dyson which are capable of picking up objects, meaning they can pick up children’s toys from the floor, stack dishes and even set the table. He is shown putting the children’s toys away, stacking the plates and even setting a table.

To help achieve its goals, Dyson is looking to hire 700 robotics engineers over the next five years, who will be spread across the brand’s sites in London, Hullavington Airfield and Singapore. 2,000 people have already joined the technology company this year alone, 50% of whom are engineers, scientists and coders. The brand also said it had secretly refitted one of Hullavington Airfield’s main aircraft hangars over the past six months to groom 250 new roboticists. Transforming robotics is the next step in Dyson’s £2.75 billion plan to invest in new technologies, products and facilities; £600million is to be spent this year.
