5e NannyBot Wants to be Your Robot Babysitter – Robotics Trends

Five Elements Robotics will be showing at CES 2017 its new 5e NannyBot, which is designed to help parents remotely monitor their kids.

The robot uses sonar to follow kids around and stream a live audio/video feed back to the parent’s cell phone or computer. Parents can remotely drive the robot indoors and outdoors (during good weather) to see a larger picture of the children’s environment

The NannyBot will be available this January for $1800.

Think of it as a telepresence babysitter, of sorts, and a new application for the company’s Budgee robot. The two robots look nearly identical, but Five Elements CEO Wendy Roberts tells Robotics Trends that “we opened the head and installed a camera and tied Bluetooth into the robotic controls.”

Nannybot is three feet tall and has a rechargeable battery that lasts for about eight hours.
