BANGKOK -- Thailand-based startup CT Asia Robotics will begin volume production of a robot designed to help care for elderly people in its own country and Japan, both of which are coping with rapid demographic changes.

Founded in 2009, CT Asia stands as one of the few robotics ventures in Southeast Asia. The company employs about 80 engineers, including graduates of Thailand's well-regarded Chulalongkorn University, and has won regional robotics competitions.
