The German-made AILA robot reads RFID tags and has great hair but no legs and no mouth. Laser range-finders help her navigate, and cameras installed in her head let her see what's going on around her. She rolls about on wheels scanning RFID tags with the reader in her left hand.

Encoded RFID information lets AILA know what kind of object she is handling and how to handle it. The RFID will tell AILA if an object is fragile or heavy and if it should be placed on a shelf or delivered to another destination.

Despite her sleek good looks, the German-made AILA robot has a fembot design that is probably best suited to inventory management or factory labor.
