The Trudeau government is working to develop an automated home robot that can deliver food and supplies to the homes of Canada’s seniors.
The robotic, which could soon be used in homes as part of the federal government’s seniors program, will also provide support for caregivers when the robot is not able to provide assistance.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the robot, which will be manufactured by the robotic arm company D-Robot, in a speech in Edmonton Wednesday.
The robot will be available in 2018 and will be part of a new federal initiative, which aims to make the elderly and disabled more self-sufficient.
The robots are expected to be available for $1,000 to $3,000, and will also have a range of different uses, including helping with the elderly’s day-to-day needs.
They could also be used to help with the care of children, seniors or other people with disabilities.
The new robot, D-robot said, will be able to perform a variety of tasks, including carrying out simple tasks like cleaning and cooking.
D-robot also said the robot will allow caregivers to interact with each other more easily, so they can interact with one another more easily.
D-Robots robots are also capable of performing basic tasks like moving around a room, taking photos, making calls, sending emails and scheduling appointments, said Chris Hennig, the company’s vice president of innovation.
The company said the robots will be capable of being used for more than a year, and they will be developed in Canada.
The robot will initially be deployed to the Ottawa area, but the company is working with Ottawa to test it out in other locations.
The program aims to improve the quality of life for seniors, according to the federal department.
The program has been in the works for years, said Justin DiCicco, the department’s director of strategic initiatives.
He said that the robot’s ability to make decisions, monitor health and social support needs and assist with other tasks would allow seniors to better manage their lives and take care of themselves.
D’Artagnan said D-RoBot’s robots have been proven to be reliable and adaptable.
But, he said, it is the robot itself that will be the key to making it work.
“We want to make sure that it is safe, reliable, flexible and that it’s going to be there for them in their lifetime,” D’Artaguan said.
