As a robot as a service (RaaS), Aeo offers plug-and-play attachments and interaction with outside developers like Malibu AI in Taiwan and Asratec in Japan.

With seven degrees of freedom (DOF) in each of the dual arms, an Aeo may do duties with one arm, such as delivery or disinfection, while using the other arm for mobility tasks, like opening doors and operating elevators.

The third-generation Aeolus arms used on Aeo have a single-arm lift capacity of eight pounds. With regard to eldercare safety, Aeo's vision algorithms offer a wide range of features, such as the ability to spot missing backpacks or open windows for security services.
