Researchers at the University of Glasgow in Scotland showed off the latest iteration of their RoboGuide, an AI-powered quadruped robot designed to assist visually impaired people.

RoboGuide uses sensors to map and assess its surroundings.

Software developed by the team help it learn optimal routes between locations and interpret sensor data in real time to help the robot avoid moving obstacles.

The RoboGuide incorporates large language model technology, so it can understand questions and comments from users and provide verbal responses.
