The COVID-19 outbreak has exposed enormous gaps in our level of preparation to deal with a global pandemic. The situation has taken a mental and emotional toll on Americans across the country and has shattered the economies all over the world. The impact of the current crisis will be long lasting and very profound. Almost all countries placed some type of travel advisory encouraging people to avoid non-essential travels which, in combination with trip cancellation, has resulted in up to 70% reduction in international and domestic flights. These travel restrictions have had staggering impact on the $880 billion global airline industry.
In order to mitigate the spread of the virus as well as incentivize passengers to return to air travelling, the airports, innovation labs and other transportation hubs around the world should start implementing the innovative ideas to lower the negative impact of the pandemic. One of the breakthrough ideas that helps passengers to get around airports and travel safer is autonomous assistant robots. InnoTech is designing and developing an autonomous assistant robot platform that provides services by taking passengers to their gate, helps them find check-in points, order foods and beverages, access information regarding their destination, take shuttle, reserve hotels, etc. In the absence of direct human contact, the autonomous robot platform reduces the risk of person to person spread of coronavirus infection.
Equipped with the latest technologies, our robotic platform navigates itself through all airport terminals autonomously, finds its own way and helps passengers to get to their destination hassle-free. The less time travelers spend at airport terminals finding their gates and looking for services, the lower the risk of getting infection and spreading the virus. Our robot provides delivery services at passengers’ boarding gates, not only will the autonomous delivery system save time for passengers, but it will also reduce the risk of virus infection by avoiding lines and direct contacts with cashiers.
During pandemic time, wasting time at airport is not safe. If you cannot find your gate or the proper restaurant, or have difficulty reserving your hotel, do not spend your time by wandering about the airport. Our autonomous robot would listen to your request and help you out to have a convenient and safe flight.
