This Startup Introduces Human-Like Robot That Is Difficult To Distinguish

Promobot, a robotic startup from Russia has revealed its new robot model called Android Robo-C, which has an incredible human-like appearance.

Russia Today reported that Promobot, a startup focusing on automation and robotics from Russia has revealed its new robot model called Android Robo-C, which has an incredible human-like appearance.

Unlike other types of robots that often work in industrial environments, Android Robo-C can replace humans in office jobs. For example, this robot can automatically answer tourists’ inquiries when they visit shopping malls or museums. Or, it can take the role of a manager or an employee to directly communicate with visitors.

However, the maximum working time of Android Robo-C is 8 hours before the battery runs out, which is equivalent to a human shift. After that, the robot will have to be recharged.

Oleg Kivokurtsev, Promobot’s co-founder said that Android Robo-C is the first robot in the world that not only looks like humans but also can perform jobs that are only for humans. The company has created a prototype and will proceed with mass production in the near future.

According to Promobot, the reason why its robot can communicate with humans is that it is powered by AI, along with at least 100,000 speech module. At the same time, it can also express its emotions, just like humans, with a total of 600 facial expressions. Promobot said that the company is planning to produce around 10 robots monthly. However, the company has yet to reveal the price of its robot.

However, Android Robo-C is not the only human-like robot that has ever been designed and produced by Promobot. Earlier, this startup has sold dozens of robots capable of talking and working in Russia and 35 other countries.

Most of these robots take the roles of administrators, communicators, consultants, guides, and coordinators to replace human employees. At the moment, the goal of Promobot is to produce 1,000 robots for the European market by 2024.
