We all love malls, don’t we?
Of course we do! They are swanky, cool and offer plush places options for us to hang out with our friends and beloved ones. However, the moment we get to malls, we are spoilt for choice and lost for options. With these huge multistoreyed and spacious arenas, one always has a hard time spotting where they are located within the mall.
Also, to know about most of the shops and their best deals, we have to traverse from floor to floor to arrive at the store. It is an irony that such a huge, swanky establishment usually does not pay a lot of attention to keep its guests aware of every deal and dining option available in its multiple shops and stalls.
So, what if there was a Mall Assistant that could make it cool for us?
No we are not talking about humans clad in black Tees and showing us directions ! We are talking of Robots !
We developed a mall assistant robot that redefines the landscape of the hospitality industry.
It is a Mall Assistant robot that was developed by the Kidobotikz community to be deployed as a customer assistant for various environments.
It stands tall at 5 feet 5 inches and has an array of sensors dotting its structure. It employs an assortment of Ultrasonic sensors to gain a 360° situational awareness. This helps it navigate through the spaces.
So How does he help the visitors?
As soon as visitors enter the mall, the robot greets them with a smile. It has big blue eyes and a electronic voice that talks to the customers. It also has a large 22 inch touchscreen display screen on its front which acts as an digital billboard/information kiosk/ map all-in-one. All of this expected to give an unparalleled experience to visitors and give them information at their fingertips.
