The Philadelphia International Airport is using a robot to deliver people their food. The gita is part of robotic food delivery program that was launched by PHL Food & Shops’ contactless food ordering program.
The pilot began Monday and runs through April…
The droid can carry up to 40 pounds and features a cargo bin to hold guests’ orders. They are able to open the bin and remove the items themselves.
The gita uses Bluetooth to communicate with an AtYourGate team member and uses visual sensors to follow the AtYourGate representative through the airport. The units were developed by Piaggio Fast Forward and have been piloted at several airports across the U.S.
