Hitachi’s EMIEW3 robot, designed to provide customer service in commercial environments, could be an ideal companion for the elderly or disabled. Its “remote brain” allows it to identify voices, images and language in its surroundings (which it can process with background street noise). AI enables it to respond to human dialogue and avoid collisions. It is light enough to lift,can move at 6km per hour, and stand on its own if knocked over. A cosmetic LED-light “beating heart” makes the robot seem more human.
