Robots to the rescue

Robots to the rescue

It won’t be long before robots become a normal part of our everyday lives.

Caring robots get the green light

From friendly Wall-E and helpful R2D2 to the dystopian worlds of the Matrix and Terminator, robots have captured our imagination and visions of the future for generations. But the time is fast approaching where interactions between humans and artificial intelligence become part and parcel of our daily routine. A new ISO standard for the safety of personal care robots has made bold steps in this direction.
