In the near future service robots will play a decisive role in the care sector. 'Waschbär & Zapfsäule' assist the personnel with their daily duties. From now on attention is turned to care and devotion to the elderly.
Simultaneously and completely autonomous the robots attend service tasks like laundry logistics and preparation of beverages.

The Segway's tilting ability lets them appear vital.
