We have literally entered the age of robotics. Numerous companies have come up with various robots and bots as helping hands.
But the role of robots is far from limited when it comes to assisting humans in any field.
The healthcare sector has also benefitted immensely from the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) and robots.
Especially in times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world saw robots like Moxi helping front-line workers to cope up with the rising number of patients.
Now, another humanoid ‘Robot Grace’, designed by the Hong Kong-based company Hanson robotics is making ripples.
Hanson Robotics is the same company that developed Sophia, the robot. Sophia has Saudi Arabian citizenship.
Robot Grace is basically a nurse robot. It has sensors, including a thermal camera fixed on her chest for detecting patients’ temperature and pulse.
Robot Grace is designed especially to converse with the elderly, isolated due to COVID-19. Grace can speak multiple languages, including English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
The robot looks more human and can produce various facial expressions. Hanson Robotics is also planning to start mass production of Grace soon.
Furthermore, plans are afoot for releasing the robot in markets of Hong Kong, Mainland China, Japan, and Korea.
