• Independent Linkage Suspension

Advanced suspension system ensures the smoothest delivery in the industry. Pudubot 2 is stable enough to handle delivery of drinks and soups with appropriate flooring. We know, we've tested numerous other robots out there with various sensors and accelerometers and can attest to the stability of the robot's suspension system..

Pudubot 2 uses a high performance lithium iron-phosphate battery pack for longer battery cycle life and enhanced safety. If you know your lithium battery chemistries, and granted most people don't, LFP is the among the most stable and long lasting chemistries out there. Operates up to 24 hours on a single 3 hour charge and good for over 2000+ charge cycles, more than the conventional lithium batteries.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the battery last?
PuduBot 2 battery lasts anywhere from 10-24 hours depending on how heavily it is used. If you have a particularly demanding usage application, an optional charging dock is available. With the optional charging dock, PuduBot 2 will automatically go to the dock to recharge when the battery gets below a set level you can select. As with the BellaBot, it isn't common for the battery to run out during a work shift here in the US, we haven't seen any customers have issues with the battery lasting all day during a typical business day.

How much training is needed to use it?
When we deploy the PuduBot 2 on site at your location, we will go over all the operational aspects of the robot with you and your staff. Generally, the interface is extremely intuitive and it only takes minutes for your staff to be fully up to par on its general use. Our staff will be on hand to answer any questions and go over all standard operating procedures of the robot.

How much is a PuduBot 2?
The PuduBot 2 starts at an MSRP of $12,999. The pricing is set by the manufacturer, all authorized dealers are required to abide by this pricing policy. Please call to find out exact details on the pricing, we will match the price quoted by any authorized dealer.

What do I need to prepare at my facility?
Fill out an inquiry for a free consultation at the bottom of this page for more details. Our engineers will go over all the fundamental requirements on your facility, such as aisle width, types of walls and surfaces you have to ensure the robot will be able to freely navigate and move around. If there's one thing above all else that's of importance, you should designate a stand-by location for the robot to be stationed. This would be the spot where the robot returns to after it makes its delivery, it is quintessential to have a spot that is easy to reach and out of the way of people traffic to ensure the robot will be the insanely helpful assistant it can be!

How many units can I deploy at a given location?
Up to 15 units can be deployed on one mapped area. If there are multiple floors, each floor would be its own map so you can have 15 robots operating per floor. The PuduBot 2 can only communicate with other PuduBot 2 units at the moment.

What are the best use cases for PuduBot 2?
Our most common use cases for PuduBot 2 is as a food delivery robot. It would be stationed somewhere near the kitchen where the food is prepared so one of your restaurant staff can load the dishes onto the trays of the robot, then press the table number so the robot can be on its way. Depending on your operations, you can have the guests remove the food themselves when the robot arrives, which is most common in fast food and fast casual restaurants, or you can have your guests wait for a wait staff to come by to set the dishes, typical in full service restaurants. A voice prompt can be programmed on the robot to audibly communicate to the guest what they should do or expect so you can seamlessly deploy the robots with zero downtime. Other uses of the PuduBot 2 have been for bussing tables and assisting in order fulfillment and parts delivery in logistics and manufacturing facilities. The options are endless!

How stable is the robot platform?
We've tested all the robots that we offer and these are the models we feel most confident deploying. There's a reason we don't carry robots from other manufacturers or brands, they simply didn't pass the muster when it comes to the stability of the hardware and the software. We've tested the robots on various floor surfaces and various lighting conditions, walls and furniture, with various sensors, including various accelerometers to measure how smoothly the robots make their delivery. Out of all the various robots, the ones listed on our site are by far the smoothest and most stable. If our robots can't deliver drinks and soups at your premise without spilling, the other robots out there will be worse off!

How does the robot handle people traffic and children in the way?
The PuduBot 2 can detect obstacles from 30 feet away with the LIDAR unit, and can see moving objects, such as people or service animals from 6 feet away. If it detects a risk of collision, it immediately slows down or changes course to avoid the obstacle. Unless you're intentionally moving towards the robot without looking in its direction, it'd be incredibly difficult for the robot to bump into you. We've had no issues with the robot running into people in the field, it could only theoretically happen if the operator didn't keep the sensors clean and unobstructed.

How can I pay to purchase a PuduBot 2?
We offer multiple payment options for you to procure the robot. You can pay in full by company check or credit card, or make installments on a lease-to-own plan with one of our third party financiers. Simply fill out the lease application to get terms for 2 year, 3 year, and up to 5 year plans. The lease-to-own option is great for businesses as it allows you to deduct the leasing costs of the equipment, and it may also qualify for IRS Section 179 deductions as well, consult with your accountant to find out more details on the IRS Section 179 deductions.

How much money can I save with PuduBot 2?
Our customers have saved anywhere from a few thousand a month to tens of thousands a month on labor costs by deploying PuduBots. It all comes down to how you implement the robots, these are merely tools at the end of the day and without your involvement, tools can only go so far. In California, the average cost for front end staff has been a minimum of $3000 a month with some parts reaching as high as $6000. Many fast food operators have deployed PuduBot 2 to deliver food to their guests, and some have even utilized the robots to deliver food to the drive-through staging area. A PuduBot 2 usually costs around $600 a month for a 24 month lease, the savings are pretty obvious. How to achieve the best cost reduction comes down to how innovative your operations are.

If you're running a fast food or fast casual restaurant, there's absolutely no reason you shouldn't be using a PuduBot to deliver food to your guests, unless you're running a Panda Express/Chipotle/Subway style operation. If you're not delivering food to your customers in your fast food restaurant, these robots definitely add value to your brand's customer service reputation. Even fine dining operations have come to appreciate the helpfulness of these robots, in bussing tables discreetly and reducing the carrying burden on their workers. And at the end of the day, the social media marketing value is incalculable, it brings immense awareness and recognition as a restaurant embracing innovation.
