Roboy is a soft robot, i.e. with soft skin and natural movements, to enable living and interacting with humans. User-friendly assistance to humans is the primary purpose of Roboy, which would include elderly care. The smooth movements of Roboy are the result of a tendon-driven locomotion system.

The University of Zurich Artificial Intelligence Laboratory is developing Roboy, a service robot which will be introduced at the Robots on Tour in Switzerland in March 2013.
