Robots will soon be teaching and assisting children across several schools in the UAE, according to tech firm ATLAB, which is planning to roll out a new system later this year.
The technology-based learning solutions company has announced that it will be introducing the ATLAB TeachAssist in schools across Dubai and the UAE and the rest of the GCC by the end of 2017.
The robot can act as a librarian, assisting students to locate books and even manage lending, and also take attendance of students and guide visitors, the company said in a statement.
It added that the robots have a humanised body with a matrix design and is powered by more than 60 sensors providing 360-degree wrap-around perception. A 3D camera around its LED eyes enables it to even read the student’s gesture and pose.
Its chest comprises a 10.1-inch touchscreen panel and its feet and body are fitted with infrared sensors.
The robot is also equipped with a HD laser projector that beams videos and presentations at 720P resolution and at a maximum 65-inch display, pulling up both customised academic content and information from the cloud. More info
