Dyson invests £5m in robot lab


curated by | February 9, 2014


Dyson, the engineering company best known for its bagless vacuum cleaners, is to invest £5m in a robotics lab at Imperial College, London.

The research will focus on vision systems that can help robots understand and adapt to the world around them, the company said.

Dyson has been working on robotics with Imperial’s Prof Andrew Davison since 2005, and he will run the new lab.

The research will cover domestic robots as well as robotic vacuum cleaners.
