HomeBrew Robotics Club 2015 February

The main presentation for February HomeBrew Robotics was Savioke's SaviOne, a delivery robot for hotels.

It runs on ROS (Robot Operation System) that many members in the HomeBrew Robotics Club uses. Exterior is all 3D printed, which you don't really realize because some parts are really shiny, some are matt surface, etc.

It was interesting to hear about the hacks. For example, SaviOne is a robot working in hotels, it uses human elevator not freight elevator, so the team hacked the elevator to enable the robot to select a floor using phone signal :)

SaviOne is installed in 2 hotels now, such as Aloft in Cupertino.
