The next time that you find yourself traveling through the Pittsburgh airport, be sure to check out the new gate-side delivery service by Ottonomy.
The Pittsburgh International Airport and Ottonomy have teamed up to put the Ottobot into service for select passengers. And you can be one of the first to experience this contactless delivery service. Ottobot from Ottonomy is currently deployed at multiple airports in the USA and Europe.
The xBridge Innovation Center at PIT is the airport’s technology testing ground for technologies and entrepreneurs that provide solutions for the industry and beyond, and Ottonomy has partnered with this facility. The airport serves as both a proof-of-concept location for technology in a real-world operating environment and a pilot site for firms’ first deployments, drawing on the robust innovation economy of the surrounding area. xBridge is located at the end of Concourse B in PIT’s Airside Terminal
“We are committed to providing the best customer experiences by discovering and implementing innovative solutions that utilize cutting-edge technology,” says Cole Wolfson, xBridge Director. “Pittsburgh International Airport’s xBridge has built a culture of innovation and we are excited to partner with Ottonomy to advance this technology in an airport environment.”
“Airports are dynamic and crowded environments, and are a perfect testbed for real-world deployments of Ottobots,” says Ritukar Vijay, Co-Founder and CEO of Ottonomy Inc. “Ottobot provides the only fully autonomous delivery experience for indoor and outdoor environments. We are seeing tremendous interest in our technology from leading airports and organizations across the globe.”
Ottobots can navigate autonomously through crowds and unpredictable environments using Ottonomy’s proprietary Contextual Mobility Navigation platform. The system is highly scalable and utilizes a comprehensive suite of tools to manage a fleet of robots across multiple locations.
