According to Conacyt news webiste, a group of Mexican entrepreneurs created Roomie Bot, a robot for home use, that in addition to identifying the faces of the people with whom he lives, it also uses artificial intelligence to control the electrical devices of the house.
Although home control robots are already a global trend, Roomie Bot is the first for the Latin market since its base language is Spanish, said the engineer in Computer Science and Systems, Aldo Luévano Ibarra.
He detailed that this robot has the ability to control intelligent devices like locks, blinds, doors, windows and even television. “One of the challenges we proposed was not only to be a virtual assistant, but to see a physical entity, which technically complements the functionality that can be granted by a virtual assistant.”
In an interview with the news agency Conacyt, the engineer commented that a camera allows Roomie Bot to recognize people who are programmed in its system, and in case of detecting someone unidentified, it issues an alert.
