Keenon Robotics expands from delivery into commercial cleaning robots

Founded in 2010, Keenon boasts an extensive product line and has expanded vigorously to overseas markets in recent years, covering 600 cities and areas around the world.

Keenon Robotics (擎朗智能), a service robot unicorn, has unveiled a new delivery robot and a cleaning robot, with plans to deliver them for commercial operation in the fourth quarter of this year.

The new releases, which came out during the recent 2023 World Robot Conference in Beijing, included multi-functional delivery robot T10 and indoor robot sweeper C30.

T10, which enriches the startup’s product line in meal delivery robot, combines four functions, including delivery, sensing, multi-modal interaction and advertising.

It sits on a versatile chassis and comes with an over-sized tray, an AI camera, and upgraded motion control abilities.

The chassis allows the gadget to withstand shocks, move smoothly, and pass through narrow aisle 59 cm wide.

Equipped with advanced sensors, T10 also can plan its own route and guide itself to the designated spot.

With a 23-inch display screen mounted on its top, the robot is able to show advertisements via cloud-controlled marketing as it moves around.

Another new launch C30 is a robotic cleaner deployed to hotels, a segment Keenon already has a strong foothold in.

It can sweep, vacuum, mop and scrub hard and carpeted floors. On a full charge, the robot cleans no less than 1,500 sqm of space.

Founded in 2010, Keenon boasts an extensive product line and has expanded vigorously to overseas markets in recent years, covering 600 cities and areas around the world.

Apart from delivery and cleaning robots, Keenon also introduced what it calls “AI test chamber,” a lab kit catering to entry-level students of robotics and AI.

The STEM-related device enables students to familiarize themselves with key concepts and application scenarios of AI and robots, as well as to train in programming.
