Toyota Partner Robot provides everyday assistance for people with disabilities

“Toyota has developed the Partner Robot, to provide everyday assistance for people with disabilities.
This robot has a compact, cylindrical body, so it can turn round in small spaces, as well as folding arms, which can do tasks such as fetching objects and opening curtains. The robot is controlled easily, by using the touch interface on a smartphone or speech recognition. It can also be controlled remotely by a caregiver, while communicating with the user. “
