Robotic Guide Dogs

In the coming years, a project will be started to explore how guide dogs respond to self-reliant delivery robots. It will be laying the foundation for widespread use of the technology shortly.

The UK charity Guide Dogs and autonomous delivery robot company Starship Technologies conducted a pilot study. The study involves guide dogs who were accompanied by their owners or trainers on regular day-to-day activities, where they encountered Starship delivery robots along the way.

The study involved the dogs meeting the robots coming towards them from both the front and rear, being overtaken by or overtaking the robot, or confronting each other at a road crossing. The dogs’ responses were scrutinized, with the project coordinators keeping an eye out for any behavior that may reflect a need for further training in guide dogs as these robots become broader.

Thus, after the complete study, the result was positive. All of the dogs reacted calmly to their robotic encounters, with most opting to stop before the robot approached them. None reacted in a negative wathe y that could pose a certain issue.

I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: Https://
