They placed a dog robot, and tested the reaction of the living dog charm toy. Representatives of the British company Consequential Robotics in cooperation with experts From the University of Sheffield (UK) designed a robot dog MiRo, which is able to recognize faces and responds to touch.
It is assumed that in the future the biomimetic robot will help to care for the elderly or disabled people.
MiRo simulates the behavior of a living dog, is able to recognize the faces of people entering the room, and sensors in the nose allow the robot to respond to odors and not to crash into objects. Well, their reaction is quite interesting.
