Robots to manage the needs of the ill and elderly
A team of researchers in London are creating robots that will have social skills.
These will be personal social robots, known as Pepper Robots.
The robots will be pre-programmed according to the needs of the user. They can be programmed to take care of the elderly and people who are ill.
The technology will be ready for use in the next three years. This will help reduce the pressure on hospitals and provide greater care to the patients who need round the clock care.
