Dyson Robots Overview:
Dyson revealed its development about the robots at the recent 39th IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Philadelphia. Currently, the company has been designing and training mechanical attachments that function as human hands.
Dyson has posted a video on its official YouTube channel illustrating how the robots are meant to function.
The video shows the robot picking up a teddy bear, a plate, and cleaning a sofa. While this may appear to be a simple task, keep in mind that robots still struggle with many tasks that we humans take for granted.

For a more efficient workflow, Dyson has plans to develop the UK’s largest robotics research center at its Hullavington Airfield facility. Aside from that, the brand will be investing £600 million this year for research on products and technology such as robots and batteries. In total, the company is planning to invest around £2.75 billion between 2020 and 2025.
A strong foundation
Getting started as one of the pioneers in the robotics sector, the company obviously needs a strong core team. So, in order to develop a solid foundation, Dyson is currently on a hiring spree, having employed 2,000 people only in 2022. It aims to employ 700 additional robotics engineers over the course of the next five years.
Dyson Robots: Availability
Dyson has not announced the robot’s availability or launch date just yet since they are still in the research and training phases. However, the company expects that its robots can arrive on the market by 2030.
