Toyota launches robot that helps disabled move around the house
Toyota has launched a Human Support Robot that helps people who are physically disabled to move around the house.
The robot is called Romulo and has already been tested on a US soldier who became paralyzed from the neck down after suffering injuries in Afghanistan.
The robot has wheels and visual sensors, along with an arm that can do tasks for those it is helping, like handling door knobs or grasping objects.
It can also make video calls and has been used in Japanese hospitals.
