Launching as a world first, a fleet of fully autonomous delivery robots has been dispatched at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
Named ‘Ottobots’, the robots provide passengers with the ability to complete contactless orders for food and retail within the airport. After delivery, customers also receive status updates on their phones via a QR code, which is then scanned by the robot’s camera to secure delivery.
We speak to the company behind the robot’s design to find out more about the autonomous functions, the benefits they bring to the airport and more.
