What are Service Robots

Robotics have been used in the workplace for decades – mostly in manufacturing facilities in the form of industrial robots.  With technology advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning and cloud computing, the future of robot workforce is changing.  More and more professional service robots are being deployed to industries outside of the manufacturing environment.

Combined with advances in vision systems and natural language processing these professional service robots may be autonomous and able to interact with human.  A wide range of service robots are being developed and deployed to complement and assist the human workforce in various industries and applications.

Businesses generally choose to automate the various tasks for reasons of efficiency, productivity as well as safety.  Repetitive and dangerous tasks can be automated, freeing up the human workforce to more cognitive-orientated tasks.  Efficiency is usually gained through reduced downtime and operating costs.  Such savings generally justify the initial investment cost of deploying professional service robots.  CANBOT’s range of robots are one such example.  

COVID-19 Pandemic

The need to minimize human-to-human contact during the COVID-19 pandemic has given service robots an elevated platform. Since January 2020, professional service robots have been used in numerous countries to disinfect hospitals, deliver medicine and food, and patrol the streets customised and equipped with thermometers.  These “robocops” patrolled the streets, took temperatures, delivered public safety messages, and chastised anyone caught without a face mask in public.

Watch how service robots have been helping in the battle against COVID-19 in Europe, as reported by Al Jazeera.

To augment the existing efforts in controlling and containing the spread of COVID-19 infection, we are pleased to offer preferential pricing for U05 & MX-2.


This robot is designed as a humanoid robot to be more acceptable, even as a frontliner, to greet and register customers or as a hospital in-patient usher.  


This is a multi-purpose humanoid robot that can adapted for use in different business environments. It is autonomously mobile, able to avoid obstacle and hold conversation.  Its flexibility of arms, fingers and neck can be seen in its dance here. Some of its capabilities include lighting the torch at a National Game Opening.


It has many other uses that one can creatively think of and integrated into.



It is aesthetically designed to be pleasing as it is meant to be of service in full public view.  It is meant to be more than transport and delivery.


It can be adapted to more than move medicine and equipment in hospitals while doctors and nurses focus on other tasks.  Its automated system can keep track of patient status as nurses and doctors make their rounds.  This should help ease the labour shortage and load faced by doctors and nurses, especially during pandemic or crisis situation.


MX-2 may be deployed for other uses one can creatively think of and integrated into.
