The robot contains a camera that works with artificial intelligence, as it can recognize the distance of the people standing in front of it, and starts the dialogue session when the visitor welcomes it.

It also contains a pre-trained model that recognizes the different Saudi dialects, analyzes sentences and understands their content, and then provides the appropriate answer and sends it in the form of text.
