As innovation and technology advances, domestic robots are more agile and interactive. Robots at home are not so far into the future and already in our lives. The Roomba robot vacuum cleaner has been around since 2002, but has improved a lot over the years, including Artificial Intelligence that remembers dirty places that need extra attention. Home companion robots are assisting with our schedules, teaching our children, and keeping seniors engaged.
Research says, sixty three million American homes will qualify as “smart” by 2022. All the IoT connected devices will come with a high price tag: consumers will spend $123 billion on IoT gear by 2021. Domestic robots will be a part of this tremendous growth,
Can you imagine the day when a robot is able to cook dinner, do all the household chores and completely change the entire way we live at home. Robots will soon be part of our families, starting with a robo-pet.
Now is the time to Invent the Future!
Watch this! Atlas uses its whole body -- legs, arms, torso -- to perform a sequence of dynamic maneuvers that form a gymnastic routine. First, an optimization algorithm transforms high-level descriptions of each maneuver into dynamically-feasible reference motions. Then Atlas tracks the motions using a model predictive controller that smoothly blends from one maneuver to the next.
Like a Roomba for your grill, this robot will help clean up after a barbecue.
The Human Service Robot offers a bold vision of personal robotics. The brainchild of engineers at Toyota, it is assisted by a suite of technology including AI, sensors and cameras to provide superior home cleaning options.
This robot also cleans your house. Alfawise works like a vacuum cleaner but can do much more. It has microfiber pads to clean glass and suction features to ensure it doesn't fall off when cleaning windows. Finally, a maid that does windows.
