Delivery robots solutions with Navia Robotics Kettybot right now: Restaurants with larger footprints where it’s quite a ways away from the front entrance to the more distant tables were having a crisis when the restaurant was packed; the host would be taking far too long to take guests to their tables meaning there was nobody to greet new patrons who just walked in the door. Hiring another receptionist or host just for this purpose didn’t make much sense, especially during downtime when the restaurant was less busy, so the owners used the KettyBot to take guests to their tables. What they found was it was an incredibly effective and efficient use of time, the host can always be on standby at the front entrance and take phone calls as necessary for reservations, while no time was wasted to get guests seated.

For large carrying capacity, look no further, HolaBot is at your service. With intelligent paging and voice control function, HolaBot is designed to boost efficiency and productivity in restaurants, hospitals, warehouses and factories. HolaBot has a 132lb carrying capacity with a maximum volume of nearly 40 gallons. 4 large capacity trays allow you to stow away large amounts of dishes, products or any other goods from one point to the next, with contactless voice activated cues to turn the robot around for loading and unloading. The trays can also be detached for larger, taller items.
The process of dispatching HolaBot was well thought out as well, with the included Smart Watch that can call the robot over to the table that needs to be cleared out. Bussers can simply head over to the table with empty bussing tubs, call the robot over with the Smart Watch and fill the bussing tubs while the robot makes it way over to the table. Once the robot arrives, calling out “Hola Hola” will have the robot turn around for easy loading of the bussing trays. Simply gesture your hand across the top of the robot and the robot will make its way to the dishwashing station without requiring any contact, keeping the robot touch screen clear of smudging from dirty hands.

BellaBot comes with four large trays that can each accommodate two typical dinner plates, or one large specialty plate. With a capacity of 22.5lbs per tray, one trip with BellaBot can carry loads that would take 2 to 4 workers to carry over, how’s that for efficiency? All the while, it can deliver them carefully with the advanced built-in wheel suspension that allows it to glide over small bumps and cracks on the floor. BellaBot features the most advanced sensor package on the market today, with several optical infrared cameras, four IR illuminators, a LIDAR sensor and bump sensors to avoid obstacles and ensure it never gets lost unlike the majority of other robots out there. There are even four motion sensors on each of the four trays to determine if the food on a given tray has been emptied…it is intelligent enough to go to the next table when the tray is emptied without any human interaction.
