Main Exhibits in the Panasonic Booth
1. Better Living Tomorrow
The exhibition here represents a lifestyle enriched with Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics technologies. Panasonic will introduce the advanced IoT technologies that make day-to-day life more convenient by connecting things within the house as well as with the outside world. Another feature is the AI and robotics technologies that support a variety of aspects of our lives, making the time spent with family and friends more delightful.
An AI kitchen advisor suggests recipes for various occasions. This Collaborative Kitchen broadens the possibility of a kitchen, with advice provided by cooking research organizations and professional chefs, and by cooking appliances working in concert with the suggested recipes.
This social robot offering a number of services in collaboration with educational institutes encourages children’s autonomous growth through interactive play. A built-in camera takes photographs of your children with their spontaneous reactions to the robot, keeping a record of their growth. The robot itself also learns and becomes more intelligent day by day.
Movable Fridge + Sake Cooler
Panasonic’s Sake Cooler that is connected to a brewery database offers information about each bottle of sake inside and recommends dishes to accompany them. The Movable Fridge here is voice responsive and safely moves around the house without bumping into children or pets. So this autonomous fridge can carry food to the specified location for you.
This intelligent laundry system automatically identifies the clothes material in cooperation with apparel manufactures and chooses the optimum washing cycle appropriate for dirt level. Not only does it wash and dry, it can fold and put clean clothes into embedded storage.
2. Smart Life
Here Panasonic introduces a wide variety of its “smart” solutions, including a smart city project, called Future Living Berlin, smart energy products, such as storage and fuel-cell batteries and a smart home security service.
