Dash the Robot Arrives at Crowne Plaza
InterContinental Hotels Group has launched a new hotel delivery robot at the Crowne Plaza San Jose-Silicon Valley hotel. The robot, named Dash, was created by Savioke, a Santa Clara, CA-based company that specializes in robot solutions for the hospitality industry.
Dash is about 3 feet tall and weighs less than 100 pounds. The machine travels at a human walking pace and can independently navigate between floors, even calling the hotel elevator using a special WiFi connection. When Dash delivers the requested amenities, it phones the guest to announce its arrival, delivers the items and makes its way back to the front desk where it can dock itself into its own charging station.
Based how well Dash does at the Milpitas hotel, IHG will look at rolling out the robot at other Crowne Plaza properties.
