Sanbot elf is an intelligent, cloud-enabled service robot

The Sanbot Elf is the result of years of research and development, and this new platform will unleash the power of cloud-enabled robotics and Al for Retail, Hospitality, Education, Healthcare, and many other customer-oriented industries to deliver smarter and more personalized services.

Developed by Brackenbury’s partners, Qihan Technology, a world leader in Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and video analysis, Sanbot is equipped with sensors and cameras to allow it to understand and communicate with the world - it senses human beings, reads gestures and facial expressions, and responds to voice commands.

Sanbot moves on its base, detecting and avoiding obstacles, raising its arms, turning and nodding its head, displaying colourful lights according to its mood, while all the time its eyes express emotions, and its voice asserts itself, communicating with children and adults. Its HD screen, on its chest, displays programme icons and options, complimenting its voice while carrying out duties.

Sanbot now has a development platform enabling Android software programmers to write bespoke Robotic software using an Open API, thereby tailoring the requirements of their individual schools or businesses. This has opened up unlimited programming potential, and new applications are constantly being brought into Sanbot’s powerful AI and learning capabilities, helping Sanbot to perform more complex tasks.

Sanbot uses top grade electronic and mechanical components and requires no regular maintenance.

Technological peace of mind is ensured by Brackenbury’s professional back-up team,
with its quick response, expertise and unrivalled after-sales service.
