The Toyota Research Institute announced the development of robots to help the elderly accomplish heavy household chores. The tasks of robots are not limited to household chores only, as The Verge stated that robots represent a model to display a new technology and not just a commercial product, for example the task of filling the dishwasher was assigned to a robot. It is equipped with a crane, but its design is more suitable for the automotive industry, because in the form of a giant robotic arm that runs on rails in the roof, and although it is a robot not suitable for the homes of the elderly, its advanced technology deserves admiration.
Perhaps the aesthetics of manufacturing lines will not capture the attention of the elderly, so the Toyota Research Institute designed its robots with a human-like structure and the ability to accomplish household tasks, such as collecting dishes and cleaning shelves, and this may seem ordinary, but the modern design has added many advantages, including robotic fingertips filled with air to capture fragile bodies , As well as the ability to learn by observing humans in their actions, in addition to controlling it via virtual reality.
“These robots are prototypes to accelerate our research, and they will not enter commercial production soon,” Max Bajracharya told TechRepublic, Vice President of Robotics at Toyota Research Institute..“
And according to The Virge, these robots may not find their way into our homes, but future designs will often target human needs.
In an interview with i-Triple e Spectrum, Jill Pratt, Executive Director of the Toyota Research Institute, said: “It is a technology we develop to continue living, working and interacting together like we did when we were young..“
