WALL-E may have roamed the Earth alone for 800 years in the future.
But now a lookalike robot could be coming to the UK as early as 2023.
And instead of just cleaning up litter like the Disney creation, this action is all action.
Aeolus Robotics claims that their Android can act as a security guard, as a cleaner in hospitals and even take over the job of staff in care homes.

Aeo opens doors with one hand and can deliver food or pills on a tray in the other, while built-in cameras and sensors can confirm if the resident is okay
WHAT CAN ‘AEO’ DO?
Navigate autonomously through corridors at speeds in excess of 2 mph.
Use the pinch arm to open doors, operate elevators or close windows.
Pick up and deliver food or pills on a tray.
Alert staff if a care home resident has fallen by noticing their change in posture with the built-in camera.
Keep an eye out for intruders and alert staff if one is detected.
He can open doors with one hand and deliver food or pills on a tray in the other, while onboard cameras and sensors can confirm whether the resident is okay.
Aeo has already been used with great success in Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan, where it is being used by some of the country’s largest healthcare providers to make the rounds.
The Japanese company told the Daily Mail that it wants to expand to the UK and is in talks with distributors and partners.
The 12-brick robot is fully autonomous, but human staff can monitor Aeo remotely via an app, with a live video feed showing progress in real time.
Built-in cameras and infrared sensors built into the robot allow it to navigate corridors autonomously at a speed of just over 2 mph.
The two mechanical arms can be secured with a variety of tools, including pliers to operate elevators, open doors or close windows, and pick things up from shelves up to two meters high.
A tray can also be attached to deliver food or medicine, or it can be equipped with ultraviolet light to disinfect door handles and other surfaces.

It’s also built with advanced AI that can alert nurses if residents’ posture appears to have changed, indicating they may have fallen
Aeo is strong enough to lift a liter of milk but soft enough to hold a phone without dropping or crushing it, while reaching over 2 meters to lift things off the top shelves. to get.

In Japan, Aeolus Robotics said the robot is also being used in hospitals to deliver medical supplies and disinfect facilities.
It is also used in offices and schools to conduct night shift patrols, keeping the cameras on the lookout for intruders and keeping the areas tidy.

The boss of one of the country’s largest healthcare providers, Senior Life Central Japan, has shared how the robot improves its patient care and services.
General Manager Kayo Kojima said, “The robot is already one of our colleagues and an important member of our team.
“The robot performs simple tasks, giving our staff more time to interact with patients and staff.”
Alexander Huang, CEO of Aeolus Robotics, said: “Our goal is to create robots that improve the quality of life and promote the positive impact robots already have on society.
“Our experience deploying robots in a wide variety of settings, from aged care, hospitals, public transport offices and hotels, has led us to develop our two-armed humanoid robot Aeo – what we consider to be a truly capable, multifunctional service robot for real-life world facilities. ‘

NHS tests assistant robot to deliver medicines around hospitals
A robot using the same technology as self-driving vehicles is transporting medicines through hospitals as part of a new trial.
The ‘helper bot’ is being used to transport and deliver prescriptions and other items around Milton Keynes University Hospital, easing the strain on staff.
It is the foundation of the British company Academy of Robotics, which has already been working on autonomous technology for its self-driving vehicle ‘Kar-Go’.
Like Kar-Go, the bot uses sonar and LiDAR technology to avoid obstacles such as people, wheelchairs and hospital beds.
