SaviOne Robot: A Hotel Delivery Robot
A robotic butler is set to roam the corridors of the Aloft hotel in Cupertino, the first example of mysterious robo-startup Savioke’s new plan to make service robotics mainstream. Dubbed A.L.O., the SaviOne “Butlr” is roughly three foot tall and topped with a touchscreen, and the Starwood chain hotel will trial how effective it is at delivering items like drinks and towels to guest rooms. Starwood is funding the trial, which kicks off at the Cupertino location but, if deemed successful, is expected to spread across Aloft properties. Each hotel could have one or two of the robots, each dressed up in a vinyl wrap complete with bow-tie.
