His name is Cashu. And he is actually a social robot
Would you like to meet him? Read on!
The Valencia Conference Centre has an android in its facilities. Does it sound like a new character out of the famous Star Wars saga? No, it’s fact not fiction! Cashu looks like a real robot and is learning really quickly about the requirements of MICE tourism. He has only just met us, but he has already made himself at home in our building.
The final touches are being added to the robot so that it can be made available to event organisers. It is equipped with different interconnected sensors and cameras and can perform the following functions: it detects the correct use of face masks, interacts by telepresence, autonomous navigation and remote control, and as it is controlled by gestures, it acts as a guide. As such, it contributes to increased safety at events. And as you can see, Cashu has been customised with the colours of the building. Thanks to 5G technology, Cashu reacts in milliseconds and interacts via voice and video in real time.
Cashu was unveiled at the recent V5G Day, the event held in our venue for researchers, companies and organisations focused on 5G technology in sectors such as the industry of the future, mobility, health, energy, media and entertainment. The event had two main objectives: to assist with the digital transformation of the Valencian Region’s business fabric and to inspire entrepreneurs and technology-based start-ups, helping them develop their business models using 5G technology.
