Partner for diet robot

THE creators of a new robotic healthcare coach have been boosted by a major link-up with an Irish company.

The personal trainer for a healthy lifestyle fits on a kitchen counter and gives advice on everything from exercise to diet.

PCH International has announced the partnership with Intuitive Automata to design, manufacture and ship Autom around the world.

The personal lifestyle and healthcare robot coach is designed to learn about each user and adapt to them and their needs over time. No two conversations with Autom are alike and the more it learns about the individual user, the more it customises the feedback advice to keep the individual motivated.
