What makes the Dyson 360 Heurist different from other robot vacuums? Well, it's all in the name. Dyson engineers developed the 360 Heurist with heuristic - or learning - abilities. This means based upon previous cleaning sessions the vacuum will continue to better understand the layout of the room and map obstacles in the home allowing for more intelligent and efficient cleans in the future. While the vacuum is running it uses a top-mounted fish eye camera lens to create a 360˚ panoramic view and incorporates SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) technology to have a continuous view of where it's been and where it still needs to clean. When encountering dark or dimly lit areas during evenings, night time, or under furniture, a LED light illuminates the camera to ensure proper mapping and cleaning is still achieved. Not to mention that the Dyson 360 Heurist has 20% more suction than previous Dyson robot vacuums.
By using tank tracks instead of standard wheels the Dyson 360 Heurist can easily climb over thresholds and transition between floor types or onto area rugs. Eight navigational sensors allows the Dyson 360 Heurist to see a four-metre diameter around it at all time. This includes drop sensors which prevent the robot from falling down stairs and sensors which prevents it from bumping into walls or furniture. A brush bar that is the entire width of vacuum provides edge to edge cleaning and prevents the 360 Heurist from having to make large overlapping passes.
Connected technology and and customized cleaning comes to life with the Dyson Link app, available for both iOS and Android devices. From across the room, or across the world, the Link app allows the cleaning times to be scheduled and adjusted whenever connected to wifi. Switch between the three cleaning levels (quiet, high, and max) and create zones throughout the house which allows custom behaviours in each area. Afterwards the Dyson Link app shows cleaning reports and maps of the areas the 360 Heurist has cleaned.
