Robosoft's recently unveiled robot combines advantages of internet and robotics technologies to provide daily-life services to people staying at home, the disabled and the elderly. It allows service providers to customize and offer various services to their customers. Some of its numerous functions include social interactions and remote visits with distant friends, relatives and doctors, remote telemedicine, cognitive prosthesis, daily reminders, and more. It is based on robuLab10, a multi-purpose mobile robot designed to embed various "application modules", and a robuBox, the generic robot middleware based on Microsoft Robotics Studio, that comes with every robot produced by Robosoft. Developed and compatible with Microsoft Robotics Studio, the robuBOX-AGV implements all the basic functions needed by most automatic guided vehicles, such as: service orchestration, management and abstraction of hardware and sensors, guidance by inductive wire or laser, anti-collision, beacon detection and localization, path teaching-and-repeating, fleet supervision, and remote control (by phone).
