Restaurant autonomous vacuum provider with Navia Robotics 2023: Bussing dirty dishes is quite the demanding task, requiring physical strength and stamina to get through a whole shift. Many workers we interviewed noted the amount of energy required to get through the day bussing tables and how dirty the task is with liquids sloshing about in the tubs while being transported to the dishwashing area in the back. It’s arduous and strenuous, certainly a task nobody can say they particularly enjoy doing. The premise behind the development of the HolaBot was to make life easier for those in this line of work.

KettyBot is our reception and greeting specialist robot. With a large 18.5″ display screen, it can cruise around the entrance displaying marketing ads, escort guests to their table all the while retaining the ability to carry loads in the built-in trays. It’s capable of AI voice interaction with guests to catch their attention and impress! KettyBot in Action! Compact Design for Tight Spaces: KettyBot is our smallest service robot and with its round footprint and forward-leaning body shape, it can navigate between spaces just 22″ wide, making it an ideal choice in crowded and tight environments.
PuduBot is our restaurant workhorse, with large expansive space, high clearance between trays, clean design along with dual visual and LIDAR navigation, it does everything you need from an intelligent service robot bar-none. LIDAR Positioning: No height restriction but requires stationary objects for mapping. Visual Positioning : Using over-head markers – maximum height of 25 feet. Body/Chassis Material : ABS / Aerospace grade aluminum alloy.
BellaBot is our most popular restaurant service robot and it is for good reason! For running food to the tables, there’s no better serving robot than BellaBot on the market. The most menial task for waiters and waitresses around the world is bringing food from the kitchen to the table, and it’s no wonder why. Dishes can quite large and heavy, and there are only so many you can stack on a tray. Piping hot dishes can be a burn hazard for both workers and patrons as they make way to deliver food to the tables. We’ve heard countless concerning stories from customers we’ve worked with of such injuries and burns happening in their restaurants and their search for a solution. That’s where BellaBot comes in to save the day!
Navia Robotics is developing flexible, network communication schemes for robots to directly communicate with other robots within the same network to quickly calculate the shortest route and make rapid decisions. Such ad-hoc networking system reduces the overhead of a centralized computing system and allows individuals robots to make decisions on the fly. The service robot nearest to the point of demand can make its way over without affecting the operation or scheduling of other robots in the area.
HolaBot comes with a paging function, a watch sized device to automatically page the robot to your location to save time by not having to track down the robot when you need it. Just wave your hand above the sensor on the top of the HolaBot unit to have the robot return to its base. No need to touch the return button if your hands are wet or dirty. Voice Recognition: Simply call out “Hola Hola” and the HolaBot robot will turn around upon arrival for easy loading and unloading.
For most operations, battery life is sufficient to last throughout the day, but for 24/7 high volume operations, it’s possible to swap the battery to keep the BellaBot running non-stop. 3 x RGBD depth cameras provide BellaBot with better three-dimensional visual perception than ever before. It can accurately detect obstacles and come to a stop with a response time as short as half a second.Bellabot sensors: Independent Linkage Suspension. Auto-leveling adaptive variable suspension system is built-in to the wheel assembly to dampen the robot from sudden braking and vibration. Damping levels can be adjusted according to different floor compositions and speed requirements. Read more details at https://www.naviarobotics.com/.
Restaurants with larger footprints where it’s quite a ways away from the front entrance to the more distant tables were having a crisis when the restaurant was packed; the host would be taking far too long to take guests to their tables meaning there was nobody to greet new patrons who just walked in the door. Hiring another receptionist or host just for this purpose didn’t make much sense, especially during downtime when the restaurant was less busy, so the owners used the KettyBot to take guests to their tables. What they found was it was an incredibly effective and efficient use of time, the host can always be on standby at the front entrance and take phone calls as necessary for reservations, while no time was wasted to get guests seated.
