One of the best attributes of robotics is its ability to perform repetitive and tedious tasks efficiently, economically and without complaint. Consistency in performance and standard are also important as you may find variance if performed by a different human. Making deliveries around complex buildings is an example of where robots can excel. Using robots to perform such tasks helps avoid high labour costs and shortages in labour supply.
With this thought in mind, GF Technovation has developed an autonomous delivery robot named PorterGuard. This intelligent delivery robot helps to smooth operations by taking over tedious and time consuming logistical tasks within buildings with a complex layout, such as hotels or offices.
PorterGuard also has the added benefit in the current times of allowing items to be delivered without the need for human contact.
Think of PorterGuard as a customer service robot because that is exactly what it is designed to do – serve people efficiently and with the minimal amount of fuss. This autonomous delivery robot is a fully autonomous IoT device equipped with a password-protected smart container. Simply call it to come to you using the mobile app, put the item you would like to be delivered into the secure compartment (up to 10kg), input a few settings and PorterGuard will deliver it to the recipient wherever they are in the building using intelligent mapping technology. The recipient then only needs to enter the password to collect their package. The robot will then return to base or to another sender. Sensors on the unit help it avoid obstacles and it can even take the elevator itself!
PorterGuard can also be used to greet and guide guests around your building as well. This applies to hotels, offices, and other large complex buildings where personalized guiding service can enhance the customer experience without the engagement of manpower. And when the device needs to recharge, it will self-navigate to its charging point. The whole process is seamless and automated.
The system is fully trackable using the mobile app which also provides useful reporting on its operation.
PorterGuard is an ideal solution for offices, hospital and schools and is particularly useful in hotels where it is used as a contactless way to greet and guide guests and deliver room service and shopping items to rooms. With their intelligent mapping technology, they are well suited to navigating complex buildings and without the need for direct human contact, they help to prevent the spread of pathogens from one area to another. Different models are available.
With PorterGuard you can:
Multiple compartments for delivery to four users in one go.
