Exploring extremes in the great outdoors, robuROC6 moved on rough non-cohesive terrain as snow or on rocks, demonstrating its capabilities to evolve in such critical conditions.

At ILTCI 2010 (Intercompany Long Term Care Insurance Conference), New Orleans March 14th-17th, Robosoft will present Kompaï for the first time, a robot specifically designed to assist dependent persons at home. This robot can speak, understand what is said to it, find its way around the house and, with just a word, access all internet services. This very first version is called Kompaï R&D, is intended for developers who want to implement their own robotics application for assistance of dependent persons.

Kompaï R&D will soon be proposed to researchers who want to develop their own companion robots. It will offer the most advanced existing technologies available today for developing interactive robots. Totally open, flexible and modular, it is a ”state of the art” basis to develop and implement own scenarios of assistance to the person.

Stay tuned …
