The 'Robin' Robot Guide Offers Consumers Directions and More

Robots are starting to show up in more public spaces as consumers become more comfortable interacting with them, which is seeing new solutions like the 'Robin' robot guide come about. Designed by Venn IDC in collaboration with Milvus, the robot is intentionally utilitarian to make it more approachable for consumers who might not find human-inspired robots appealing. The unit can be placed in airports or shopping centers to provide consumers with information on flights, retail locations and much more to keep individuals feeling confident of where they're headed.

When the 'Robin' robot guide is not being used by consumers for directions, the integrated screens can be used for marketing purposes to make it a multifunctional fixture in public spaces of all kinds.
