CeMAT Asia – China’s top Industry Trade Show

CeMAT Asia 300For the first time, BlueBotics will be exhibiting at the CeMAT Asia trade fair in Shanghai from October 31st to November 3rd. We will showcase the whole ANT® product line as well as the new mini™ lite mobile base. While this platform is very similar to the mini™ in terms of functionality and modularity, it is more adapted to light-load logistics in standard environments. On top of this, the groundbreaking RA660 Navi autonomous cleaning machine from Cleanfix will also be on our booth.

We are looking forward to meeting you on our booth B1-2 in Hall W4 of the New International Expo Center in Shanghai!



Cleanfix RA660 Navi used by the Swiss Federal Railways

SBB CFF 160x160The Swiss Federal Railways, the Blick and 20 Minutes have reported that the ANT® driven RA660 Navi autonomous cleaning machine from Cleanfix was currently under test in several train stations around Switzerland. After a pilot project in Bern, 2 more robots have already been deployed in Lucerne and Zurich’s train stations. Lugano, St Gall and Geneva airport should receive their cleaning robot very soon.

We are very glad that our ANT® product embedded in the autonomous scrubber-dryer from Cleanfix helps make cleaner environment for passengers travelling in Switzerland!

SITA Lab presents KATE

SITA lab - 3x KATESITA Lab unveiled KATE, an intelligent check-in kiosk that will autonomously move to busy or congested areas in the airport as needed, promising to relegate check-in queues to the past.

Again a great collaboration between SITA Lab and BlueBotics, which saw the idea of SITA Lab being engineered, designed and produced by BlueBotics in only three months. BlueBotics’ engineering services proved to be again a key enabler for innovative service robotics applications.
Of course, KATE is also ANT® driven.

You can watch the video showing three KATEs moving around in BlueBotics’ offices.
SITA’s press release is available on SITA’s web site.

Many thanks SITA Lab for this great collaboration!
