The Infinity VIP Lounge in Terminal 2 at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport has a new team member in the form of service robot Plato.  

Plato’s primary role is to support the current hosts and hostesses in the Lounge by taking over some of their more “repetitive and time-consuming” chores, freeing them up to focus on more on their guests.  

With large round eyes and a smiling ‘face’, Plato is programmed to adapt to the surrounding environment, navigate crowds and carry loads up to 30 kilograms.

Plato can run for up to 15 hours on a single charge and take direction from simple voice commands.

“With Plato, labour-intensive, repetitive, heavy-lifting and transporting tasks are automated, promoting better health and well-being for restaurant, hotel and store staff,” says a spokesperson for United Robotics, the company who designed and built Plato.  

Some of the jobs the robot can do include carrying trays of food to customers, transporting dishes, glasses and silverware, and serving drinks.
