Hi Guys and welcome, I am Philip English from Robophil.com and on this video we are doing a quick Interview with Oleg Kivokurtsev from Promobot LLC. We managed to speak to Oleg at the Innarobo 2015 Robot Exhibition in France, Lyon.

Oleg: This robot can speak about variously, he has a very big linguistic database, he can move without touching some, recognise your face and recognise your speech and absolutely an autonomous robot helper. We are in a place with a big sound, a big traffic. Today, they are robots that walks in city mall, cinemas, airports and help persons to find information which they need. Maybe, one time you come into airport you can’t find your gate for flew and you can choose your language and ask robot “Please show me, where is my gate?”, he can say, ”Come on with me, I will show you .”
Philip: Sounds good! Sounds like a helpful supply robot, so maybe in airports, maybe in supermarkets in the future, but in places where people can go up there, they maybe lost and they need a bit of helping hand and they can use the robot for sort of thing. So how many of these robots are in Russian in the moment?
