MAHE, PONDICHERRY: Its 6 am in the morning, Mrs. Raghavan awakes from sleep and finds her home cleaned by personal robot, Pooja. She also own a robot dog who reminds of her daily schedule, medicines and to pick up her groceries. Cleaning Robot meticulously scrubs the floor, dives under the sofas and tables and does not leave any dust or stains on carpet. Life is more life enjoyable now and she does not have to worry about the boring daily chores which consumed most of her family time. “My one-time investment on robotic dog and robotic maid has given me many years of benefits, serving our family 24*7” says Mrs. Raghavan.
Personal robots are a new concept in emerging countries but they have been mowing lawns, ironing clothes, vacuuming homes, cleaning swimming pools and helping surgeries from past many years in developed countries. In countries like India, where hiring a maid a.k.a. “Bai” is easy but very difficult to extract quality work from them. Most of working couples pay thousands of dollars to maids for just making their home clean. Now with the availability of multiple Service Robots, more and more couples are investing in permanent robotic maid. They can do multiple tasks which are uninteresting, hard or boring with limited intervention. More advanced versions are actively protecting homes from burglars, assisting complex surgeries, serving in restaurants, assisting elderly and managing large shopping centres and libraries.
