A startup called Savioke has unveiled a Linux- and ROS-based SaviOne hospitality robot, currently being tested at a California hotel for room service duty. Savioke’s “SaviOne” stands three feet tall, weighs less than 100 pounds, and can roll along at a typical human walking pace of 4 mph. The touchscreen-equipped robot lacks arms or legs, but can operate a smart elevator on its own via a wireless signal.

The SaviOne has just started a pilot program under the name “A.L.O.” with the Aloft Hotel in Cupertino, Calif., a member of the Starwood Hotels and Resorts family.
