Felix, the comapny's first robot, is a fully autonomous mobile robot that is used mainly for advertising purposes. When deployed in an indoor venue, Felix first builds a map of the environment then uses this map to navigate autonomously while avoiding static and dynamic obstacles. While moving around, Felix can detect viewers, predict their age and gender, and recognize their outfit. For example, Felix can detect if viewers are wearing sunglasses, caps, backpacks... in addition to the type of clothing (i.e casual, formal ...). Based on these predictions, Felix will analyze the viewers’ interests and display targeted ads from its database. The company has also developed a special avatar that pops up on Felix screens to interact with people and grab their attention. Moreover, Felix drives autonomously to its charging station when the battery level drops, then it goes back to duty when the battery is full.
