A fully autonomous robot fleet is delivering meals and other items at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky (CVG) Airport.
The airport is partnering with autonomous robot startup Ottonomy Inc. to deliver retail and food items in one of its concourses via the company’s “Ottobot” robots. Ottobots create a digital map of the serviceable area and localize within that map. The robots’ live location gets updated on the map while they are navigating autonomously to deliver the orders.
Ottonomy’s proprietary contextual mobility navigation software enables Ottobot robots to navigate through crowded and unpredictable environments. The Ottobot solution also offers a comprehensive suite of tools for managing a fleet of robots deployed across different geographies.Chain Store Age
