An Aloft Hotel in Cupertino Features a Robot Butler That Delivers Room Service

SaviOne Robot

As Dale Houghton Jr. found out during a recent stay, the Aloft Hotel in Cupertino, California has a robot butler that delivers room service orders to guests. The robot is a SaviOne created by Savioke, which was deployed to the hotel as part of a pilot program to test the robot. The SaviOne travels at a walking pace, has a two-cubic-feet cargo area, and can navigate its home hotel independently, including traveling between floors on the elevator.

The program was successful enough for Savioke to develop a new model of hotel service robot, the Relay, which will begin its pilot program soon.
