Home robot carrying goods with verbal command is on sale in Japan

The robot, produced by the Japanese artificial intelligence company Preferred Robotics, based in the capital Tokyo, goes under the specially designed mini wheeled service table.

Kachaka, in a rectangular shape suitable for domestic use, can bring or take things with the help of the coffee table on his back after verbal commands.

The device, the size of a robot vacuum cleaner, carries the object recorded via the mobile application to the desired point in the home or office with the given command.

Kachaka, which does not crash into walls and furniture with its sensor and camera equipment, prefers the best route while carrying its load to the desired point.
