Robots can be programmed to do a variety of things and this new one developed by researchers at Fraunhofer IPA not only helps with doing tasks but they can also interact with humans through voice and text. They say that MobiKa could be most useful for elderly people to assist them with daily activities.
"MobiKa is a service robot for use at home or in care facilities, which is currently available as a prototype," Graf explained. "The robot consists of a mobile, wheel-driven platform and a slim height-adjustable tablet on top. Using navigation software developed here at Fraunhofer IPA, MobiKa moves safely and autonomously to a given destination."
