Making its debut this week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Aeolus robot from Aeolus Robotics checks off a number of boxes for those in search of a robot that could lend a hand at home.
Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, Aeolus can perform a number of practical household tasks such as cleaning floors, organizing and storing household items and retrieving items, thanks to a responsive arm.
Along with being able to complete household tasks, Aeolus — thanks to sensory and biometric technologies — can distinguish between family members, household objects and living space. The robot can even alert the proper authorities once it detects an emergency situation such as a fire.
“At Aeolus Robotics, it’s our mission to bring together the latest in robotics, AI and machine learning in an affordable in-home robot,” said Alexander Huang, Global CEO of Aeolus Robotics.
Although still a prototype, the robot is expected to be available for purchase at the end of this year.
“Costing less than a family vacation overseas, the Aeolus Robot makes the dream of having a home robot a reality and frees up valuable time for you to do the things you want to do,” Huang said.
