Ottobots delivery robots launched at CES

Robotics startup Ottonomy has unveiled its Ottobots – autonomous delivery robots for indoor and outdoor environments – at the global CES tech show in Las Vegas.

The first Ottobots have already been operating at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) where they have been delivering goods to passengers passing through the airport.

“We are excited to unveil Ottobots at our first CES,” says Ritukar Vijay, CEO of Ottonomy. “The pandemic has provided Ottobots a catalyst enabling a series of partnerships that allowed us to launch fully autonomous delivery for indoor deliveries, curbside deliveries and last-mile deliveries.”

As well as the airport, Ottobots have been delivering hot food to LA based Crave restaurant customers. The food is ordered via an API that can synchronise with restaurant chains’ existing systems.

The first Ottobots went live in 2020, and were run to gather information as to real world situations the development team had not envisioned. The launch at CES signals that the company is ready to deploy them with customers, with little further testing and development.
