Every day, millions of humans abandon their pets for hours at a time, left alone to take care of themselves. That time if someone or something could entertain their pets during long days. For that robotic pet sitters invent.
Talking about smart technology, robots can take care not only of what people need but of what their pets need as well. Robots as pet sitters are nothing but the caretaker of the pets, who take care of them in the presence or absence of humans. Since 2017, robotic pet sitters have been in development.
The pet sitter robot is controlled by an app that plays with pets in order to keep them active and happy. These robotic pet-sitters come equipped with two webcams, a microphone, and a speaker. A built-in speaker into the base of the robotic pet sitter let pet hear you as well. A robotic pet sitter would connect to a home Wi-Fi network and allow to access the device through a web browser.
