SINGAPORE [6 September 2017] – GT Wonder Boy, Singapore’s very own SMART robotic companion and GT Gobot, an Intelligent Service Robot made their first appearance in Singapore at the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) today held at Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands. This conference is a premier international forum for robotics researchers to present their work globally.
Created and founded by Dr Paul Zhang of GT Robot Technology Pte. Ltd. These are Singapore’s envisioned future of SMART companion and multifunctional service bot to facilitate SMART living.
Minister for Trade and Industry, S. Iswaran personally paid a visit to our booth, located in the Singapore pavilion to say hi to both GT Wonder Boy and GT Gobot. He enquired on both their functionalities and was simply in-awed especially by GT Wonder Boy’s ability to hold seamless two-way conversation, paired with multiple distinctive abilities such as being a personal assistant, that can help record minutes, manage hotel and dining reservations, set general appointments (spa, medical, school, work, etc.), online purchases and quick pay.
He was also impressed at its multilinguistic ability to speak and translate up to 13 different languages such as English, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Malay, Thai, Nepali, Hindi, Russian, French, Korean, Japanese, Spanish and Indonesian. GT Wonder Boy also danced alongside with its legion for the Minister.
He felt that GT Gobot will be extremely useful in the service industry, given its automated tracking and voice navigation function to help move heavy loads around.
Integrating the world’s most advanced technology, both GT Wonder Boy and GT Gobot are a display of heightened technological advancements, indicating growth, showing how Singapore is evolving into a Smart Nation rapidly.
It was a successful event that presented plenty of opportunities that allowed international guests to meet and understand how both GT Wonder Boy and GT Gobot can help alleviate their lives. Both these bots unlike the rest can be customised to suit the needs of people and industries making it a unique innovation.
