Olly

Emotech has built a personal-assistant robot, named "Olly".







Olly's key features include:

Vision-enhanced natural voice interaction

Olly interacts like a human, and will proactively start a conversation rather than just reacting to a command. Olly has sight as well as hearing abilities.

Expressive Visual Interaction System

Olly communicates using a custom built circular LED display with a design language that is as visually unique as every Olly, yet understandable due to its shared core patterns. 

Multimodel user-recognition

Olly recognises by voice and image. If it can’t see the person then voice recognition is used. Combining voice and image improves the recognition rate. 

Scene understanding

Olly uses vision to enhance its beam-forming microphone array technology by visually analysing the surrounding environment to understand the type of the room, and any obstacles that might be in the way. 

Emotional character engine

Olly understands facial expressions, vocal intonations and verbal patterns. This allows Olly to move and talk to the user. 

Activity recognition

Olly recognises what the person is doing, and can learn the intention behind it.
