LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On January 6, Chinese multinational consumer electronics and home appliances manufacturer Haier plans to unveil its signature creation -- Ubot the intelligent robot -- for the first time anywhere in the exhibition area for home appliances at the 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2016) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The reputable consumer appliances maker also plans to roll out a series of network - what Haier refers to the 7 U+ ecosystems, including food, air, water, washing and cleaning.

At the center of the current smart home scenario is a master control panel powered by a core information processor scheduled to activate and operate each piece of household equipment. In a computer, this is the function assumed by the CPU, while in Haier's U+ world, a larger and more complex system is needed, and this is where Ubot comes in and assumes this function. Within the household, with Ubot at the controls, commands can be issued to Haier's U+ smart ecosystems so that they can operate interactively, providing an "all-in one" home management system household.

Under Ubot's command, Haier provides intelligent life solutions for the 7 U+ ecosystems. Refrigerators under the management of Haier's smart food ecosystem, led by Haier's BCD smart window refrigerator provides food management, sterilization, cooking and wine storage in addition to other food preparation and handling solutions. Users can execute the laundry handling program and monitor the wash and dry process remotely through the washing and cleaning ecosystem. The network-enabled smart mirror that is part of the water ecosystem provides remote monitoring of the futuristic bathroom space.

At the CES, Haier has set up 3 small model living spaces, including the Small Living Space to demonstrate what it means to live smartly in a small apartment, a Traditional Suite to show what a smart kitchen can deliver and an Entertainment Space for what the future of a home entertainment theater might look like. These sample spaces are examples of Haier's complete solutions for different living spaces. Ultimately, what Haier delivers are a wide variety of solutions for creating your own personalized and unique life style.
