MAiRA (Multi-sensing Intelligent Robotic Assistant)
Description MAiRA is the first commercially available cognitive robot designed to collaborate with humans in a natural way. Robots now are inflexible tools which can only be used by experts by means of writing sophisticated software. Through intuitive programming MAiRA can effortlessly learn from instructions because she can see, hear and experience the sense of touch and distinguish humans from other objects, which makes her usable by everyone. She is the first robotic assistant to represent a technological leap in the world of industrial robots, which generally only have the sense of touch. This limits their user-friendliness, autonomy and other capabilities.
