At Robotise, we are proud to be world leader in the segment of commercial service robots. Our aim is to provide an experience that surpasses our customers’ expectations. We focus on real-life challenges and day-to-day tasks where service robots can provide a decisive benefit. From day one, we engage with our customers and work with them to develop the initial Minimum Viable Product (MVP). By iterating rapidly, we go from MVP to Release Candidates and beyond.
How everything started
Robotise was launched at the Technical University Munich by the end of 2015. Back then, we already believed that the future lay in providing robotics as a service, and we now know that humans will soon be interacting with service robots on a daily basis. Design is a crucial aspect to help boost acceptance and ensure that people enjoy engaging with robots. Robots need to be safe and fun to interact with – and, most importantly, they need to offer an economic benefit.
In 2015, we started talking with potential users at airports, care homes and hospitals, before shifting our focus to the hotel segment. These interviews provided valuable insight, leading us to our lightbulb moment: why have a minibar in every room, hundreds in total, if you can have one minibar that comes to every room? This was the moment our story and the story of JEEVES started.
JEEVES, an iconic character
The name Jeeves was inspired by the iconic character from the stories and novels by the English author P.G. Wodehouse. Jeeves is the exceptionally competent valet of Bertie Wooster, a wealthy socialite. He is a byword for the very best, most discreet service – and we believe the name perfectly sums up what our company is about.
