Sir James Dyson has just unveiled a number of developments for his companies line of cordless vacuum cleaners. Using laser detect technology, the company hopes to use this new technology to give actual data-driven evidence as to how clean your home actually is.

The Dyson V15 Detect uses an acoustic piezo sensor along with a green laser diode to expose and detect hidden dust as small as 10 microns, which then records the size of what’s being sucked up via an LCD screen at the back of the vacuum.

“As engineers, our job is to solve daily problems, and the past 12 months has created plenty of new ones with more time spent indoors” explains James Dyson, Chief Engineer and Founder. “We are all cleaning more frequently, trying to remove the additional house dust but desperate for peace of mind that our homes are truly clean. Our latest vacuums use adapted laser technology to reveal hidden dust, integrating a diode laser into the cleaner head that is precisely positioned at a 1.5-degree angle, 7.3mm off the ground to create the best contrast between dust and floor. We don’t think detection is enough, so we remove and meticulously size and count the particles 15,000 times a second using an acoustic piezo sensor which converts vibrations into electrical signals, displaying precisely the size and number of particles sucked up on an LCD at the back of the vacuum. The Dyson V15 is both powerful and intelligent, giving the ultimate reassurance – scientific proof of a healthier, cleaner home.”

On top of the new Dyson V15 Detect vacuum, the team at Dyson has been very busy during the pandemic, enlisting its 370 engineers to develop a number of new innovations which can be seen in the video below — presented by none other than Sir James Dyson himself.
