Travelmate: a Fully Autonomous Suitcase and Robot
The travelmate robotic suitcase is the first true robot companion and fully autonomous suitcase. It works seamlessly in crowds and doesn’t require any extra peripherals. Travelmate can move vertically and horizontally when autonomous. You can take it with you when you’re going to the airport, commuting to work or just walking outside. It’ll match your speed accurately and can go as fast as 6.75 mph.
The travelmate robotic suitcase is the first true fully autonomous suitcase. It works seamlessly in crowds, doesn’t require any extra peripherals and you can buy it at a starting price of 499$. Travelmate integrates with your smartphone to accomplish complex tasks that no other suitcase can do. It can move vertically or horizontally with ease.
You can put more items or perhaps another suitcase on top of Travelmate when it is traveling autonomously in horizontal mode.The travelmate robotic suitcase navigates large crowds and is able to recognize and avoid objects as needed. As you can see in the video above, our suitcase is not just a concept – it is a real working model and all of the features demonstrated already work on the Travelmate autonomous robotic suitcase.
There are currently 3 different suitcase models, ranging from carry on sized to a large suitcase. Travelmate isn’t just a normal suitcase — it’s an autonomous robot companion that follows you wherever you go and makes traveling much easier. Our suitcase is smart enough to always follow you and avoid any obstacles in its way.
Travelmate is perfect for any situation. It can carry your stuff for you when you’re going to work, walking to school or rushing to the airport gate. Smart features like omni wheels and our Follow Me system means that Travelmate is at the cutting edge of AI and autonomous movement technology.
How it works
The Follow Me system has built in sensors that detect as well as avoid obstacles like people and furniture. It uses the Travelmate application to follow you and to better pinpoint its location at all times.
In addition to fully autonomous horizontal and vertical modes, the Travelmate has a variety of useful features that other suitcases do not have. The battery that powers Travelmate can be easily removed and is charged with wireless technology. The battery can be used to charge almost all electronics through a USB port and a standard electrical outlet. In addition, the Travelmate suitcase features unique omni wheels that allow for unprecedented multi-directional movement.
This is crucial for autonomous technology. Since the suitcase functions as a robot in practice, it uses AI and machine learning to optimize its movements and omni wheels allow for markedly increased stability and range of motion that cannot be achieved otherwise.
Travelmate is fully TSA compliant and our suitcase sizes are standardized. The smallest Travelmate is carry on sized and fits the specifications of all major airlines’ requirements for carry on specifications. The Travelmate has a touch enabled lock system that uses your fingerprint to open your suitcase. In order to comply with TSA guidelines, we have also included a mechanism to manually open the suitcase. You can always add a separate lock to your suitcase for extra security.
