Piaggio Fast Forward
Headquarters: Boston MA, USA
Piaggio Fast Forward's flagship solution is the gita personal carrier robot. The cute, two wheeled robot is designed to follow you around and carry all of your stuff. The gita robot can carry up to 18 kg (40 lbs) of your gear. The original gita robot was introduced in 2017, but this new generation of robot has changed. It's no longer autonomous, and can only follow a person. The max speed is now 2,682 mm/sec (6 mph).
The gita can follow its owner, but it doesn't visually identify its owner. We're curious if this might lead to some interesting confusion on the sidewalk as gita decides to follow someone else better looking than its owner. gita does well on hard surfaces, but can't climb stairs and is restricted to a 16 degree ramp.
