Walker is your agile smart companion – an intelligent, bipedal humanoid robot that aims to one to be an indispensable part of your family. Standing 4.75 feet (1.45m) tall and weighing 170lbs (77kg), the new version of Walker is more advanced than ever, including arms and hands with the ability to grasp and manipulate objects, a refined torso with improved self-balancing, smooth and stable walking in difficult environments, and multi-modal interaction including voice, vision, and touch. Walker has 36 high-performance actuators and a full range of sensing systems that work together to insure smooth and fast walking.

Core functions of Walker include:

-Flexible walking on complex terrain: With gait planning and control, Walker can achieve stable walking on different surfaces including carpet, floor, marble, and more. Walker can also adapt to complex environments such as obstacles, slopes, steps, and uneven ground.

-Self-balancing: When Walker is disturbed by external impact or inertia, it can automatically adjust its center of gravity to maintain balance.

-Hand-eye coordination: Walker’s hands offer seven degrees of freedom to flexibly manipulate objects. By combining its hands with its own perception, Walker can also position dynamic external objects while adapting to uncertain conditions in real-time.

-U-SLAM navigation and obstacle avoidance: UBTECH Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (U-SLAM) uses environmental information to avoid obstacles and determine Walker’s best path through a dynamic environment.

-Face and object recognition: Walker has powerful machine vision capabilities to detect and recognize corresponding faces and objects in complex background environments.

-Smart home control: Walker can help users control common household equipment such as lighting, electrical appliances and electrical sockets, enhancing safety, convenience, and comfort.

With so much innovative technology packed into its humanoid robot body, Walker has the intelligence and capabilities to make a helpful impact in any home or business in the very near future.

Also new at CES 2019 is the latest version of Cruzr, a customized, cloud-based, intelligent humanoid service robot, adding features and refinements for increased performance and reliability in Retail 4.0 environments. Already deployed by customers in Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America, Cruzr is where service meets intelligence, helping businesses link offline and online retail experience through smart data to better meet customer needs, while freeing human teams to focus on more complex issues requiring human interaction.

New benefits of the latest version of Cruzr include:

-Refined body structure and servo motors: increased reliability, reduced noise, and improved arm movement and obstacle avoidance ensure Cruzr’s lifespan and usefulness match your business needs.

-More powerful processor: a more powerful and smoother software experience ensures the best possible customer interactions.

-Redesigned audio chamber: improved audio quality and volume helps Cruzr’s voice and other sounds cut through environmental noise.

-Enhanced connectivity: The addition of 4G LTE functionality makes Cruzr more intelligent everywhere it goes, and two USB and two HDMI ports ensure it’s easy to connect peripherals.

-Improved navigation: larger mapping capabilities with better location and cliff detection, obstacle avoidance, and navigation system optimization provide a smoother and more secure experience.

-Improved wheel design: new driver wheel design improves maneuverability and reduces noise.

The new version of Cruzr is available for sale worldwide, including availability in North America for the first time in 2019.
