KettyBot is a new intelligent robot created by Pudu Robotics. It is the first hybrid of a receptionist and a delivery robot. KettyBot can display ads, has a collection capacity, and uses customer-friendly artificial intelligence technology. The KettyBot simplifies your work and makes your location more worthwhile.
Pudu Robotics is an international high technology company devoted to designing, researching, developing, and selling commercial robots. The robotics company was founded in 2016, and its headquarters are in Shenzhen, China. Pudu Robotics has produced high-quality delivery robots and disinfection robots widely utilized in hospitals, restaurants, business buildings, schools, government buildings, underground stations, waiting facilities, etc.
According to the World Economic Forum, online shopping and robot deliveries have been the top 10 technology trends during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The SARS pandemic in China in 2002 led to an enormous expansion of both the internet marketplace for businesses and consumers. Similarly, COVID-19 has made shopping online an essential requirement worldwide. Some bars in Beijing continue to offer happy hours via online food orders and delivery.
So, for online shopping to go smoothly, there is a need for a robust logistics system. Also, the demand for contactless delivery is rising. Many delivery companies and restaurants in China and the United States have implemented contactless delivery robots, that pick and drop items at a defined location instead of in-person delivery. Big Chinese E-commerce platforms are also leveling up the development of robot deliveries. But before robot delivery, suppliers required specific standards to ensure that the sanitary conditions for supplied commodities are safeguarded.
Features of the KettyBot:
Compact Design for Enhanced Readiness
The simple design concept of Pudu Technology continues with KettyBot. The compact size and forward-leaning C-shaped body enable the robot to pass only 55cm, making it a perfect choice in complex and busy areas. The dimensions of the machine are 460 × 440 × 1120 mm. The KettyBot weighs 35 kg, and its holding capacity is 30 kg.
Advertising on the wheels

COVID 19 gives the world a sense of how much we depend on human interactions to make things operate and function properly. The worst affected are the labor-intensive enterprises such as retail, food, production, and logistics. COVID 19 has been a significant driver of robotic utilization and development.
Robots have been utilized in recent times to sanitize rooms and deliver quarantine food. While some reports forecast that in the future, many production jobs will be overtaken by robots, and at the same moment, new jobs will be created. COVID 19 has proved that digital readiness makes business and life continue as usual as much as feasible during a pandemic.
To remain competitive in any company or country after COVID 19, building the necessary infrastructure to sustain the digitalized world and staying up to date with the latest technologies will be essential with an advanced and inclusive approach to technology management.
KettyBot will serve the purpose of contactless deliveries with advanced technology. The machine will assist in deliveries as well as play the role of a receptionist, which is excellent!
It’s not the only robot from Pudu Robotics that helps in deliveries. Some of the delivery robots from Pudu Robotics include BellaBot, PuduBot, and HolaBot. Pudu Robotics has been providing several solutions to combat the negative impact of COVID 19. It has also introduced two more robots that disinfect and sanitize rooms called Puductor and Puductor 2.
In 2020, Pudu Robotics supported more than 100 hospitals with its delivery robot PuduBot to fight against the coronavirus with premium technology. Pudu Robotics raised above $ 150 million in series B financing from Meituan. Also, it raised nearly $ 15 Million in Series B+ Financing in August that was led by Sequoia Capital China.
