At a time when Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc across India, robotics brand Milagrow HumanTech has launched four new humanoid robots, as it witnesses increasing demand for automated solutions. These robots include RoboDiCaprio, RoboJulia, RoboNano, and RoboElf, which are specially designed to cater to hotels, hospitals, restaurants, and corporate offices.
The guest relations robot
RoboDiCaprio, the guest relations robot is 155 cms tall and can be used for greeting, reservations, and advertising. It can also be used for patrolling at hotels, banks, restaurants, hospitals, schools, and shopping arcades. Equipped with sensors to sense human presence in proximity, RoboDiCaprio can actively interact with visitors. It can greet them, broadcast promotional information, guide the visitor to different locations, and play audio, still images, and videos while speaking. The humanoid also has face recognition capabilities with response in milliseconds and 98 per cent accuracy. When it comes to navigation, RoboDiCaprio functions on a highly-specified LiDAR (light detection and ranging) remote-sensing technology, which can scan a distance of 25 metres with an accuracy of 2 mm. It is also equipped with Milagrow’s real-time terrain recognition technology for seamless navigation without any human intervention.
“Our robots will increase efficiency and productivity across industries while promoting social distancing,” said Rajeev Karwal, founder-chairman, Milagrow HumanTech, adding, “With our unique, state-of-the-art offerings, we look forward to creating a new set of value-added jobs.”
The serving robot
The other humanoid RoboJulia — a serving robot — is 155 cms tall. It is designed to deliver meals to the guests’ designated tables, explain the menu, and proffer restaurant information. The robot can even deliver different meals to three different tables. It can work universally, take fast turns, and has an emergency stop. RoboJulia is equipped with anti-skid rubber wheels and can walk at 3 kmph. It does route negotiation autonomously from one point to the next, with depth perception and high precision radar sensors for better navigation and positioning technology.
The service assistant
Milagrow said its service assistant robot called RoboElf has already been deployed at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, and Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre, Mumbai. It has also been deployed at shopping malls, restaurants, and banks.
The personal companion
The other humanoid RoboNano is a personal assistant robot equipped with Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service. This Cloud-enabled robot features voice assistance, smarthome control, and remote surveillance capabilities. It delivers centralised management and security to households. RoboNano stands 85 cms tall and comes with over 50 sensors to avoid objects in its way, recognise voices, and knows when someone enters the room. Additionally, the humanoid can order pizza, request a car, track fitness stats, control the television, and play music. It pairs with smarthome devices enabling families to control lights, thermostats, and home appliances. RoboNano also allows families to live-stream video and control it from anywhere. When the family is away, the robot can monitor the house, using object detection sensors and sounds an alarm if an intruder is discovered.
