Don’t want to do housework? Then let the robot to help you. Home appliance manufacturer Dyson has announced that it will develop robots to help people do housework.
The BBC reported on the 25th, Dyson announced that it will set up a large robotics center at a campus in Hullavington, Wiltshire, UK, to develop household robots. There will be 250 robotics science engineers working on research and development at this center.
Dyson has made significant efforts in recent years to recruit skilled professionals related to the development of robots in areas such as machine vision, machine learning, sensors and mechatronics. Of the 2,000 new people joining the company this year, about half are engineers, scientists and programmers.
Dyson announced in November 2020 that it will invest an additional $3.67 billion over five years to develop new technologies and products. The investment will focus on emerging technologies, hiring technical talent in areas such as software, machine learning and robotics in Singapore, the UK and the Philippines.
Dyson announced in January 2019 that it was moving its headquarters from the United Kingdom to Singapore for reasons unrelated to the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, but rather for the opportunities that the Asian market offers for business growth. Dyson now manufactures appliances such as vacuum cleaners, air purifiers and hair dryers.
