Tuesday, July 21, 2015
Micah Green and a team of Cornell University students have been hard at work creating the first housekeeping robot for hotels. Green started working on the venture that introduces automation into the hospitality industry in an effort to reduce costs and injury rates at hotels. Maidbot robots clean the bedroom, bathroom and hallway floors completely and autonomously, which can save hotels an estimated $9,000 per unit.
