A group of NED University students have left many highly impressed after creating a robot called ‘Luco-Chotu’ for children with autisim.
Luco Chotu is a unique AI cognitive model that can interpret sensory data (facial expressions, speech output, etc) and uses clues to access child behaviour.
The robot functions on an Android platform and can be controlled through the a smartphone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and is low-cost as it has been completely made in the country.
According to the Lucobot website, the Luco Chotu offers diagnostic and treatment support to autistic children relieving the burden from the current labor intensive therapeutic interventions.
Luco-chotu is a robotic platform that helps the autistic children to improve their imitation skills. This robotic platform mainly targets the children having autism.
The highly modified LUCO-chotu will assist therapists in imitation therapy. The repetitive behavior of LUCO-chotu help autistic children to learn human actions on other hand it can also copy child’s action by detecting human posture.
Moreover, the website shares that the Lucobots are equipped with a number of high-end features:
The team behind this amazing robot includes Mohammad Ghayas Ahmedani the Co-Founder and COO, Mr Jamshed the co-founder and CEO, Muhammad Kamran Waseem the co-founder and Director Business Development, and Hashim the co-founder and Director Technology.
The students have two other models called Luco Doc which can measure vitals of COVID patients remotely and Luco Salam robot that can be hired as a receptionist by companies.
With invention like these, children who face day-to-day social problems will be able to express themselves better and vice versa, the data accumulated through AI will help doctors as well as parents understand their child’s needs.
We hope that this technology goes nation and eventually worldwide with a ‘Made in Pakistan’ stamp.
