Labrador Retriever Robot: an Assistive Robot for Elderly

Labrador Systems, a company that makes assistive home robots, recently made Labrador Retriever which is an autonomous service robot to make life easier for senior adults or people with disabilities to move or "retrieve" things at home. Image credit: Labrador Systems Initially, the robot should be trained to build a map for the home. This training is done using a set of routes and stops (places that the robot should go, such as by the fridge) based on the customer's needs and preferences.
