There is no question that robots will be taking many jobs from us. They are already being used in factories to help businesses become more operationally efficient. Walt is a factory robot that wants to take your job with a smile. It is a collaborative robot that recognizes his human colleagues and greets them with their name.
The robot is smart enough to recognize gesture commands. It has a friendly face and can display icons and short animations to express itself. Walt is the “end result of a two year project called Claxon, with partners Audi, Imec, Melexis, Softkinetic, VUB and Robovision.”
