The three core features of the Samsung Bot Handy robot — dexterous manipulation through robot arm/hand and control, general object handling through a combination of AI and grip, and extended workspace in a 3D space through navigation and elevation — can help you complete household tasks in less time.
Samsung Bot Handy can also handle other tasks around the house, such as tidying up cluttered rooms or putting dishes away after a meal, allowing you to focus on your most important tasks.
9. These robots can help feed people who can’t feed themselves
- Status: under development
- Cost (if any): Not yet disclosed
Tapomayukh Bhattacharjee, a scientist at Cornell University, and his team are working to create a robotic arm to help feed people with spinal injuries.
Bhattacharjee believes that robotic assistance with eating is one of the critical areas where robots have the potential to revolutionize care in the future.
The National Science Foundation’s National Robotics Initiative has awarded the roboticist a $1.5 million four-year grant to help him and his EmPRISE lab create robotic solutions that provide care for people with physical disabilities.
“Nutrition is one of the most basic activities,” Bhattacharjee said. “Imagine asking someone else to feed you every morsel of food in your daily life. This takes away the feeling of independence completely.”
He continued, “So, if we can solve this nutrition challenge, if anyone can look at this robot as an extension of their own body, they will feel much more independent. That is why I am so excited to solve this.”
10. Gita can actually carry your purchases home for you
- Status: Commercially Available
- Cost (if any): between $1,850 and $3,250 For the smaller and larger version, respectively
Biagio fast forwardLtd., a Boston-area startup and a division of Piaggio, has created a two-wheeled, cargo-carrying robotic vehicle known as the Gita. In February 2017, the first prototypes of the Gita were released, and the end of November 2019 saw the launch of the Gita for sale in the US market.
The Gita can carry up to 40 pounds of stuff and is designed to follow anyone. The gadget could perform some routine work on its own, such as parking itself, although it was initially connected to the user by a wearing belt. Subsequent iterations eliminated the belt and included more advanced navigational features.
11. Ubtech Robotics’ Cruzr hugs you and talks to you
Ubtech’s Cruzr It is a human, intelligent, and autonomous service robot. To ensure smooth movement through its environment, it is equipped with a wide range of sensors (Lidar, sonar, infrared, depth perception camera, etc.). The cruiser has multi-directional wheels, a total of 13 degrees of freedom from head to waist, and it’s not bipedal.
This robot can interact with people it encounters by shaking hands, greeting strangers, dancing, hugging, and more.
Cruzr can be customized and includes facial recognition, emotional expression, voice, active interaction, voice interaction and action.
With the help of the U-SLAM technology it created, Ubitech can also locate and determine its perimeter to efficiently guide partners and customers.
12. The “pepper” seems to have been frozen
- Status: Currently paused
- Cost (if applicable): Not currently for sale
SoftBank Robotics (formerly Aldebaran Robotics) is behind the popular personal robot “Pepper”. A semi-human robot with the ability to perceive emotions, revealed during a conference on June 5, 2014.
It was introduced on June 6, 2014 at SoftBank mobile phone stores in Japan. Pepper can identify emotions based on the detection and analysis of facial expressions and tone of voice.
On June 5, 2014, Masayoshi Son, founder of SoftBank, unveiled Pepper in Tokyo. In December 2015, Pepper was supposed to be available on SoftBank Mobile sites.
The initial 1,000 units of the “Pepper,” which went on sale in June 2015, sold out in less than 60 seconds. In 2016, Pepper debuted in the UK. 12,000 Pepper robots have been sold in Europe as of May 2018.
According to reports, SoftBank will stop making “Pepper” in June 2021 due to lack of demand. An estimated 27,000 units were produced at the time.
13. “NAO” can speak many languages
- Status: Commercially Available
- Cost (if any): About $7,990 For general public release
NAO, a Programmable self-driving humanoid robot, It was the first robot developed by SoftBank Robotics.
In 2007 Sony’s robot dog Aibo was replaced by Nao as the robot used in the RoboCup Standard Platform League (SPL), an international robot football competition. NAO was used in RoboCup 2008 and 2009, and NaoV3R was chosen as the platform for SPL in RoboCup 2010.
