They can also be used for video calls, virtual consultations and watching TV.

Chen Wei, a marketing manager with Woosiyuan, says that the company spent three years developing the robots.

"Following the trials, we will make some improvements," he says.

The company also plans to upgrade the robots to perform new functions, such as inspections and holding conversations with people.
