A Russian robot starts working as a teacher in India
The Russian robot Promobot V.4 has started its work in an Indian school, where it will teach several educational subjects, according to Promobot.
The company’s statement read, “The Russian robot Promobot V.4 has started its work at the Heritage School in New Delhi, India, where it will teach students several disciplines and will serve as a ‘live’ laboratory platform within the framework of additional educational lessons.”
The company notes that, with the help of the robot, students will learn programming, electronics, mechatronics engineering, as well as programming robots, according to Russia Today.
“The peculiarity of studying robotics technology with a Promobot robot is that it is a ‘real’ robot that is already operating in 43 countries of the world today. With its help, children get acquainted with the work of artificial intelligence on a live example, and not through hypothetical models,” says Oleg Kivokortsev, Promobot development manager. It’s a unique opportunity: a Russian robot, replicas of which are running all over the world – from the USA to Australia.”
Promobot V.4 is a service robot designed to work in crowded places, and it can perform different tasks – advisor, airport employee, guide or administrator.
It is noteworthy that this is not Promobot’s first work experience in Indian educational institutions, as it has previously worked with Maharishi Vidya Mandir Private Schools in Chennai, India
