At CES this year, Samsung presented a few innovative bots to boost our daily health. These helpful assistants include the Samsung Bot Care, Samsung Bot Air, Samsung Bot Retail, and Samsung GEMS.
Care from a ‘Bot’
To start, the Samsung Bot Care helps individuals manage their daily health routine. It can measure a user’s blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, and more. It also notifies the user when they need to take their medications and can ping an emergency contact when there is an alert. The bot also tracks the user’s sleep and will present an analysis of sleep patterns for the individual in the morning.
Automatic Clean Air
Next up is the Samsung Bot Air, a self-operating, air-purifying robot that helps keep the air clean in every room of the house. The bot utilizes sensors that are dispersed throughout the house, and one sensor is located on an electronic appliance to assess air quality. If the bot identifies an area where the air quality is not meeting expectations, it automatically moves to that location and does its job.
Your Personal Shopper
The Samsung Bot Retail provides customers with a more personalized shopping experience. The bot helps customers find items they need by evaluating their facial expressions and voices. The robot can navigate its environment, despite the constant rouse of busy shoppers, and escort customers to the area or item they are looking for. Restaurants and stores can also use the bot to deliver food to customers or return items to their correct location.
Muscle Training with Your Robot
Lastly, Samsung Gait Enhancing & Motivating System (GEMS) can help people who have trouble walking, running, or standing up. This device helps prevent users from overworking their muscles, corrects their posture, and provides exercises catered to their needs. Depending on the user’s individual needs, they can select any of Samsung GEMS’ three devices designed for the hips, knees, and ankles.
“Our plan is to gauge consumers’ demand for robots, consider ways to create solutions for societal challenges, and accelerate our development efforts,” says Seung Hwan Cho, Deputy Head of Samsung Research. “People can look forward to the future that Samsung Bots will help create.”
