The prestigious Crown Plaza San Jose-Silicon Valley hotel has launched its new hotel delivery robot. Named Dash, the item-carrying robot was created by Savioke, a California-based robotics company which specializes in creating robots for the hospitality industry.
Savioke says Dash will further enhance the guest experience through providing quick and seamless delivery of snacks, toothbrushes and other amenities to hotel guests.
Approximately 3 feet tall and weighing less than 100 pounds, Dash is designed to travel at a human walking pace and can independently navigate between floors, even calling the hotel elevator using a special wi-fi connection.
Dash is Savioke’s latest version of its autonomous delivery service featuring automatic docking, improved autonomy, and an all new design enabling Savioke to scale in response to demand.
When Dash arrives at the guest room, it phones the guest to announce its arrival, delivers the requested items, and makes its way back to the front desk where it can dock itself into its own charging station.
With more than 300 guest rooms, the Crowne Plaza is the largest hotel to use Savioke robot technology.
