This is a new robot being released by UK company Dyson. This is a competitor to the Roomba and its sole purpose is to autonomously vacuum your floors.

It has some pretty cool technology, especially its unique 360 degree vision system, allowing it to see all of its surroundings at once. The motor that they use to create suction is also pretty impressive since it uses pulse-width modulation (PWM) to spin the motor at up to 78,000 RPM. That’s some serious spinning!

The drive system appears to use two motors to drive tank treads. There is no mention of the speed of these motors but presumably it’s a slow (and safe) mover.
