TUBO Helps University To Research HRI

TUBO (Tungmyong University roBOt) is being developed and studied at Tongmyong University’s Department of Robot System Engineering. They’re studying TUBO so they can learn about Human to Robot Interaction (HRI). The researchers promise for TUBO to become a fully developed household assistant robot. Very similar to AR, it has stereo cameras for face recognition, reading capability, Listening comprehension (limited to Korean), and SLAM. All of these components are in AR, except for the reading comprehension. With the Assistant Robot and TUBO being worked on at the same time, I think we can have a great product, if they work together.
