UBTECH Robotics, a global leader in intelligent humanoid robots and AI technologies, is unveiling its newest addition: Walker, the world's first commercialized biped robot, to a global audience at CES (News - Alert) 2018.

Walker will also be designed to provide smart assistance and support across a wide range of people's day-to-day lives. It will feature two main modes of interaction, via both voice and touch screen activation, and provide a variety of functions including:

  • Smart home control
  • Video surveillance monitoring
  • Security patrol monitoring
  • Motion detection
  • Instant alarm
  • Video calls/conferencing
  • Real time e-mail integration

"Walker bridges the gap between technologies that were once only available in scientific research institutions and everyday people. It has been specifically designed to have a tangible and positive impact and provides services that families have never had access to before," said James Chow, CEO, UBTECH. "As the world's first biped robot of its kind, Walker exemlifies UBTECH's commitment to create technologies that will make a difference and have a positive impact."
