LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - Robots are no longer a thing of the past. They are sneaking more and more in our daily lives, especially here in Las Vegas.
13 Action News got a sneak peak at one named ‘Servii,’ who you will most likely see all over the Las Vegas Strip in the next couple years.
“When it comes to technology, things are happening a lot faster these days then anybody ever imagined,” said Kai Schuette with Service Tracking Systems.
‘Servii’ already exists in 200 hospitals all over the world. She moves food, linens, medical waste, and trash.
Now, she is ready to enter the hospitality industry.
“The type of jobs that ‘Servii’ does are the type of jobs people don’t necessarily enjoy doing,” said Peter Seiff with Aethon. “It’s a lot of waiting for elevators and riding elevators and pushing heavy carts with potential for injury.”
The people behind ‘Servii’ expect her to pop up on the Las Vegas Strip some time in the next two years.
“When it comes to technology, things are happening a lot faster these days then anybody ever imagined,” said Schuette.
While many studies suggest robots like ‘Servii’ will take the jobs of humans, ‘Servii’ creators say that may not be the case. They hope people in these automatable jobs will be deployed into positions that require more human interaction.
Service Tracking Systems and Aethon will be showing off ‘Servii’ all week at the Embassy Suites on Paradise. Click here for more information about the demonstrations.
