Since 2014, Relay has been working with hotel staff to surprise and delight guests all around the world. Relay is reliable, easy to use, and completely autonomous. He even uses the elevator all by himself.
Most important, Relay is safe around people -- and not just workers in steel-toed boots. Relay gracefully navigates through dynamic environments, avoiding all obstacles and people in his way. He is especially gentle and safe around children who often want to hug him or chase him through the hallways. In fact, the first time we installed Relay in a hotel, we saw a three year old’s bare feet through the robot’s eyes. That’s the safety case we designed Relay for.
It’s Savioke’s combination of award-winning design, proprietary technology, and innovative engineering that makes this a reality.
Today, Relay is in nearly 70 locations in the US, Europe, and Asia including all the major hotel brands. Beyond hotels, Relay is working in logistics centers, bringing tools and parts to technicians, and will be in hospitals next month, delivering medications to patients and nurses.
Yes, Relay is giving us superpowers to be more productive, but the real magic is his character. It’s Relay’s charm, politeness, and honesty that makes him a beloved teammate rather than just a functional appliance.
