The SmartPal V created by Yasukawa Electric Corporation, was designed completely to be a home service robot. The SmartPal V helps people in their homes with housework.
The SmartPal V knows how to sort laundry by color and type, and then this robot hangs it up. Using voice recognition and 4 CCD cameras, it can recognize and respond to individuals, or just wander around and keep things cleaned up on its own. The SmartPal V robot has 21 joints including a bendable waist allow it to pick things up off the floor, and it can run until its rechargeable battery runs out (Almost 3 Hours).
