Cobalt Robotics Expands Integration With Otis Elevator

August 15, 2022

Cobalt Robotics, which deploys autonomous mobile robots to help security operations, has announced an integration with Otis and its Integrated Dispatch API in order to call and dispatch Otis elevators remotely.

Cobalt’s robots provide safety and security primarily through corporate office spaces, automating security workflows more reliably than humans. Through the elevator integration, robots can provide coverage to multiple floors, increasing the speed with which teams can resolve safety issues throughout their spaces.

“Our relationship with Otis continues to bring the power of AI-backed security solutions throughout the world,” said Mike LeBlanc, president and COO of Cobalt Robotics. “By integrating seamlessly into buildings with Otis elevators, our robots are able to cover more square footage than any other security robots.”

Since 2020, the two companies have collaborated on implementations across continents and at Fortune 500 companies. In addition, the collaboration has helped to reduce the overall project cost and time needed to implement a robot solution.

The Otis Integrated Dispatch API enables robots from many manufacturers to communicate with almost any Otis elevator via a cloud or local connection. It provides more flexibility and scalability than conventional hard-wired integrations – allowing robots to work with a bank of elevators rather than only one.

“Otis is always looking for the best new technologies and innovations to deliver to our customers,” said Neil Green, chief digital officer at Otis. “As more buildings turn to service robots to enhance customer experiences and improve productivity for employees, we’re proud to work with Cobalt and other robot providers to bring seamless innovation and value to customers.”

Recently, Cobalt announced another integration, working with Safetrust and its sensors to help open doors remotely within office buildings. To learn more about Cobalt Robotics, visit its website here.
