“We improved the basic parameters of the previous model: increased the reliability of the robot, replaced the fiber reinforced plastic body with a lighter and more eco-friendly made of carbon, developed carcass-bearing arms using our own technology, achieved greater smoothness and speed. We also worked on the updated design of Promobot: lightweight carbon case allows to shorten the production cycle and simplify the serial assembly. We want to move forward, towards implementing individual application cases. Now Promobot can be equipped with a built-in dispenser of plastic access cards, which allows Promobot customers to automate the process of identifying and providing access to facilities for their employees and guests, and to establish a full-service concierge service, “said Aleksei Iuzhakov, chairman of the board of directors of Promobot.

The developers note the increased interest in the products of Promobot from American customers. In this regard, CES will be the starting point for the development of the US market. After the exhibition Promobot plans to strengthen its presence in the region. Negotiations for cooperation with several major partners in Philadelphia, Miami, Louisiana and other states are already under way. The company has big plans to create a permanent representation and increase sales in the US.
