Softbank will launch service robotic cleaning service

Softbank Robotics has announced the launch of the automated room cleaning service, which is based on the use of the WHIZ vacuum cleaner.

Many have heard of Softbank, standing for the development of popular human-like Pepper and NaO robots. However, now the company introduced a new business model in the field of cleaning services.
