Robosoft introduces robot that help elderly

Robosoft’s Robuter prototype French robotic specialist Robosoft has demonstrated a prototype service robot which can help elderly and handicapped people stay at home. The robot, launched at Microsoft’s Innovation Day in Brussels at the end of 2007, is a home-centric robot, which combines the internet and robotics technology to provide daily-life services to people staying at home. The aim of the robot is to show how service robots can help elderly and handicapped people by connecting to the internet, enabling social interaction, remote telemedicine, cognitive prosthesis and much more. Robosoft has designed the robot to allow providers of services to customise it and offer various services to their customers. The new robot uses the same technology as Estele, the remote tele-echography system already in operation in four French Hospitals. Robosoft say its vision of a new kind of robot, called “robuters”, will help people in everyday life before 2011
