A domestic robot is a robot used for household chores.
Thus far, there are only a few limited models, though science fiction writers and other speculators have suggested that they could become more common in the future. In 2006, Bill Gates wrote an article for Scientific Americantitled "A Robot in Every Home". [vague]
Many domestic robots are used for basic household chores, such as the Electrolux Trilobite, Roomba and the SLAM based Neato Roboticsvacuum cleaner robot. Others are educational or entertainment robots, such as the HERO line of the 1980s or the AIBO. While most domestic robots are simplistic, some are connected to WiFi home networks or smart environments and are autonomous to a high degree. There were an estimated 3,540,000 service robots in use in 2006, compared with an estimated 950,000 industrial robots.

Litter-Robot for cats. A towel folding
robot has now been developed in the USA but is not yet on sale.
Home transport robots are a main element in the
domestic robotic system, because they join specialized processes,
moving objects at home (i.e. clothes from the bathroom to the
washing machine or glasses from the table to the dishwasher):
STR (by Iberobotics). It includes Wi-Fi and USB connection to (domotics) network.In 2006 Sharp said it has developed a humanoid robot that clears dishes from the table and puts them into a dishwasher. The robot (measuring 95x50x45cm) opens the door of the dishwasher, takes hold of teacups, rice bowls and plates, places them in the unit and closes the door 
General helper robots
There are also general domestic helper robots, i.e. HRP-2.
Robotic lawnmowers. RoboMower (by Friendly Robotics). The Husqvarna. Automower. Ambrogio by Zucchetti. Automated pool cleaners are robots for cleaning swimming pools.
Toy robots include
Sony's Aibo, a robot pet dog also used by many universities in the RoboCup autonomous soccer competition. Robosapien, a small humanoid remote controlled robot. Furby, an electronic toy that was the must-have toy of 1998. Spykee, a consumer spy robot.
Robots whose main object is social interaction
(partner robots) include:
Wakamaru, a humanoid robot designed to provide company for the elderly and less mobile people, made by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, on sale from 2005. Paro, a robot baby seal intended to provide comfort to nursing home patients. PaPeRo, a robot designed by NEC to study robot-human interaction. Sony's QRIO. NUVO. PINO. EMIEW. Toyota Partner Robots, some of them mountable.
Domestic robots in popular culture
Many cartoons feature robot maids, notably Rosie the Robot from The Jetsons. Maid Robots are especially prominent in anime (in Japanese, they are called Meido Robo or Meido Roboto), and their Artificial Intelligence ranges from rudimentary to fully sentient and emotional, while their appearance ranges from obviously mechanical to human-like.
