Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) has launched a ‘delivery robot’ at the Crowne Plaza San Jose-Silicon Valley hotel.
The robot will deliver snacks, toothbrushes and other amenities to rooms. Approximately 3-feet tall and weighing less than 100 pounds, Dash is designed to travel at walking pace and can navigate between floors and call the elevator using a wifi connection.
When Dash arrives at the room, it phones the guest to announce its arrival, delivers the requested items, and makes its way back to the front desk where it can dock itself into its own charging station.
The robot, named Dash, was created by Californian tech company Savioke.
