Restaurant autonomous scrubber provider from Navia Robotics 2023: Bussing dirty dishes is quite the demanding task, requiring physical strength and stamina to get through a whole shift. Many workers we interviewed noted the amount of energy required to get through the day bussing tables and how dirty the task is with liquids sloshing about in the tubs while being transported to the dishwashing area in the back. It’s arduous and strenuous, certainly a task nobody can say they particularly enjoy doing. The premise behind the development of the HolaBot was to make life easier for those in this line of work.

KettyBot is our reception and greeting specialist robot. With a large 18.5″ display screen, it can cruise around the entrance displaying marketing ads, escort guests to their table all the while retaining the ability to carry loads in the built-in trays. It’s capable of AI voice interaction with guests to catch their attention and impress! KettyBot in Action! Compact Design for Tight Spaces: KettyBot is our smallest service robot and with its round footprint and forward-leaning body shape, it can navigate between spaces just 22″ wide, making it an ideal choice in crowded and tight environments.
PuduBot features an industry leading visual SLAM solution for accurate location positioning and obstacle avoidance. In addition to the visual SLAM sensors, a LIDAR sensor ensures the PuduBot can react to the presence of obstacles in the blink of an eye. That means whether you have a dozen tables or a hundred, PuduBot will be able to go to the correct table consistently, making your job easier and not having to worry about any mix-ups with customers.
BellaBot comes with four large trays that can each accommodate two typical dinner plates, or one large specialty plate. With a capacity of 22.5lbs per tray, one trip with BellaBot can carry loads that would take 2 to 4 workers to carry over, how’s that for efficiency? All the while, it can deliver them carefully with the advanced built-in wheel suspension that allows it to glide over small bumps and cracks on the floor. BellaBot features the most advanced sensor package on the market today, with several optical infrared cameras, four IR illuminators, a LIDAR sensor and bump sensors to avoid obstacles and ensure it never gets lost unlike the majority of other robots out there. There are even four motion sensors on each of the four trays to determine if the food on a given tray has been emptied…it is intelligent enough to go to the next table when the tray is emptied without any human interaction.
Navia Robotics is developing flexible, network communication schemes for robots to directly communicate with other robots within the same network to quickly calculate the shortest route and make rapid decisions. Such ad-hoc networking system reduces the overhead of a centralized computing system and allows individuals robots to make decisions on the fly. The service robot nearest to the point of demand can make its way over without affecting the operation or scheduling of other robots in the area.
For large carrying capacity, look no further, HolaBot is at your service. With intelligent paging and voice control function, HolaBot is designed to boost efficiency and productivity in restaurants, hospitals, warehouses and factories. HolaBot has a 132lb carrying capacity with a maximum volume of nearly 40 gallons. 4 large capacity trays allow you to stow away large amounts of dishes, products or any other goods from one point to the next, with contactless voice activated cues to turn the robot around for loading and unloading. The trays can also be detached for larger, taller items.
BellaBot features an industry exclusive dual SLAM solution for accurate location positioning and obstacle avoidance. Most other solutions only utilize either a laser SLAM solution or a visual SLAM solution, but our latest BellaBot utilizes both to provide the highest levels of positional accuracy in the industry. That means whether you have a dozen tables or a hundred, BellaBot will be able to go to the correct table consistently, making your job easier and not having to worry about any mix-ups with customers.

Restaurants with larger footprints where it’s quite a ways away from the front entrance to the more distant tables were having a crisis when the restaurant was packed; the host would be taking far too long to take guests to their tables meaning there was nobody to greet new patrons who just walked in the door. Hiring another receptionist or host just for this purpose didn’t make much sense, especially during downtime when the restaurant was less busy, so the owners used the KettyBot to take guests to their tables. What they found was it was an incredibly effective and efficient use of time, the host can always be on standby at the front entrance and take phone calls as necessary for reservations, while no time was wasted to get guests seated.
