Toyota shows off Delivery Robot prototype

Prepping for an entire nation that will soon house possibly the world's largest elderly population, Toyota has unveiled their latest robotic human assist droid called the Delivery Robot. The small robot is a product of Toyota's Partner Robot program, an initiative focused on creating robotic solutions for the disabled.

Using speech recognition, stereo cameras and a laser range finder the Delivery Robot will be used for common tasks like taking out the trash, and opening doors. You can see video highlighting the Delivery Robot's finer points here.
