Autonomous Delivery Robots Improve the Guest Experience

What is a delivery robot?

Autonomous delivery robots are intelligent machines that can deliver items and operate independently without direct human control or intervention. As an efficient and reliable contactless delivery option, robots provide a safe and pleasant experience for both guests and employees. Delivery robots are already widely used in a variety of industries but aren’t very common yet in the hospitality industry. With the aim of innovating hospitality, PHHS offers a delivery robot that can take guest requests, deliver room service or housekeeping items, and then return to base, where it will charge itself as needed.

Delivery robots deliver—and not just the food

Although a quiet colleague, Richie carries a heavy load. From transporting food and beverages as part of the room service team, to taking dirty laundry to the washing machine to assist Housekeeping, the Richie delivery robot can support every department. It can even take orders from guests and take trash out to the curb! Delivery robots are independent workers but also great team players.
