But human interaction can be completely avoided if a guest so desires, thanks to Yotel's check-in kiosks, which can take a minute or two to use depending on the hotel guest's tech savviness. About 95 percent of all check-ins at the hotel are done by kiosk, with the rest being done at the hotel's front desk, according to the hotel.
Yotel wouldn't comment about the amount of money the hotel saves by having automated systems instead of human employees.
And the Yobot isn't the only robot attracting visitors to hotels. The SaviOne, from manufacturer Savioke, is a service robot working at the Aloft hotel in Cupertino, California. That robot delivers meals and amenities to hotel guests. It navigates using cameras and other sensors to avoid damaging the hotel or hurting its customers, according to an article on Designboom last year.
