Remote-Controlled Robot Staff Tested in Japanese Convenience Store
The Model-T, by Telexistence, will help to tackle Japan's convenience store labor shortage problem.
Science & Tech
Japan's convenience stores are facing somewhat of a labor shortage. In a bid to make it easier for these stores to stack their shelves, Japanese robotics firm Telexistence (TX) has developed a remote-controlled robot, the Model-T.
The humanoid robot with a cat-like head can be controlled via a virtual reality headset using the company's "Augmented Workforce Platform" (AWP).
