Quality service robots experts from Navia Robotics Kettybot: 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...
Factory service robotics experts with Navia Robotics Pudubot right now: Navia Robotics spends considerable time and money investing in research and development for core positioning and navigation technologies for our robotic systems. We partner with top technology companies around the world to develop accurate positioning systems and sensors and have expertise in both LIDAR and visual imaging systems and utilize our own advanced algorithms for simultaneous localization and mapping. Our latest BellaBot is the first in the service robot industry to utilize both LIDAR and visual SLAM systems for accurate positioning and repeatability, one of the most important aspects of a service robot’s capabilities.

Advanced algorithms for obstacle avoidance are implemented to ensure the safety of those around the robot. In addition to LIDAR, multiple visual sensors are implemented to go beyond simple 2D perception and ensure accurate detection in 3D perception…including any blind spots. Pudubot obstacle avoidance capability: 3D Obstacle Avoidance Compared to traditional 2D radar, 3D stereoscopic sensors can quickly model the surrounding environment with depth perception to greatly reduce the probability of collision.
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.
Multi-table Delivery Mode and Cruise Mode: KettyBot can be used to deliver food to tables. Built-in queuing system allows you to punch in the destination of the food to two different tables for the two different trays. KettyBot can also be set to cruise mode to roam around the premises and catch the attention of passersbys. Built-in LIDAR and visual sensors allow for better obstacle detection, accurate positioning and safer operations. Internal mapping algorithms allow the KettyBot to find the most efficient route to its destination.
IPX5 Waterproof Cabin: The HolaBot’s cabin area is IPX5 rated to take on various liquids splashing while operating. Simply wipe it off with a damp towel for easy cleaning. Different Operating Scenarios: The HolaBot can be used in various different environments, such as restaurants and hospitals as shown below. Other novel uses include banks, pharmacies, factories, warehouses and order fulfillment centers, auto/truck repair facilities among others.
BellaBot has multiple status lights to easily communicate the status of the device with the customer. Light interactions can also be customized for your specific needs. BellaBot has an integrated touch sensor to interact with the customer, bringing forth a new level of interactivity with service robots. Modular structure for quick disassembly and compact stowage. Sensors are embedded over the trays to determine if the tray is occupied or empty. See additional information at https://www.naviarobotics.com/.
We’ve had the gracious opportunity to deploy numerous KettyBot units in the field and get feedback from many different restaurants on what the saw as the best case use scenarios for the KettyBot in their establishments. As the carrying capacity of the KettyBot is a bit on the smallish side, it’s ideal for smaller restaurants and cafes to use it for delivering food to tables and fit in tighter aisles, but for larger establishments, the KettyBot’s tray dimensions are usually a limiting factor. On the other hand, it has a large screen up front to display pictures and videos of the latest dishes and to promote upcoming events and sales, so larger restaurant owners have taken it upon themselves to try out the KettyBot to take patrons to their tables.
