The goal of is to innovate and open the way for effective and environmentally friendly delivery operations. Ottonomy successfully demonstrated autonomous deliveries using its worldwide pilots in 2022 over a variety of terrain and in a variety of adverse weather situations in order to offer long-term solutions for automating deliveries for several use cases at scale.

“During the validation processes we ran pilots with airports, retailers and postal services which gave us the deep insights we needed on the most effective use cases and scalability,” says Ritukar Vijay, CEO and co-founder of Ottonomy.IO. “With our strategic partnerships, we are in the prime position to fill the gap that companies like Amazon and Fedex were not able to. As demand and the use cases for autonomous unassisted delivery continue to grow, we are positioned to provide robots-as-a-service for restaurants, retailers and beyond.”

Launching its robot-as-a-service business model, Ottonomy was able to speed up the adoption of autonomous delivery solutions, proving that fully autonomous delivery is a solution that works well, can be scaled up, and will last.

The company is one of the first autonomous delivery robot solutions to operate both indoors and outdoors. This capability enabled the company to focus on a variety of application opportunities. The company is actively pursuing use cases that include curbside delivery, bringing grocery orders from deep inside the store to the curbside, where customers remove items and place them into their waiting vehicles.

In 2022, Ottonomy successfully deployed autonomous delivery robots at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky (CVG), Rome Fiumicino International Airport (FCO), and Pittsburgh (PIT). In addition, Ottonomy robots are used by Posten Norge in Oslo, Norway as well as Goggo in Madrid, Spain for automating first-mile delivery and last-mile deliveries. Ottonomy is also working with industry partners in Canada and Saudi Arabia with more launches scheduled for 2023 in the USA, Europe and Asia.

The Ottobot 2.0, introduced in Q3 2022, as the first fully customizable and modular robot featuring interchangeable cabins and specializations based on the needs of retail, restaurants, and curbside deliveries. Designed with accessibility and directional mobility in mind, the Ottobot 2.0 utilizes Ottonomy’s proprietary contextual mobility navigation to autonomously navigate through crowded and unpredictable environments.

The Ottobot Yeti was on display at the Ottonomy booth at CES 2023 and featured in our recent “Best robot solutions of CES 2023” article.
