Rover Speed is the world's first artificial intelligent suitcase that can automatically follow its owner without any remote control or wearables.
The AI-powered autonomous driving suitcase integrates the latest advanced technology including visual identification, tracking and positioning, laser ranging, obstacle avoidance and navigation.
It comes with built-in remote follow and auto-lead features, USB ports to charge your devices and smart lock systems – and all you need is a smartphone app to run it.
Team Rover Speed claim the new suitcase is a game-changer in the travel industry.
It is unlike other "smart travel" travel suitcase brands that have come and gone, they say.
What sets the Rover Speed ‘travel robot’ apart is its effortless autonomous control, obstacle avoidance with smartphone tracking and notifications – all created from the best mobility technology available.
The developers have more than 25 years’ experience combined in the robotics, automation, product design, engineering, manufacturing and fulfillment fields – and are all frequent flyers.
The luggage – which surpassed its Kickstarter goal of $30,000 in just a week – is set to be released to early backers in January.
"We're thrilled to bring the Rover SPEED smart luggage to the travellers everywhere," says CEO He Tao. "We are confident that travel pros will love the innovations this luggage essential will provide them."
Team Rover SPEED is committed to making and delivering luggage that is smart, fun, easy to use, and of the highest quality, Tao said.
Unique LED lights not only show others that you're ahead of the curve, but also give helpful status information, running mode and low battery.
Rover Speed is built using futuristic auto-follow AI technology for body recognition.
With intelligent tracking cameras and radar, you can be sure your belongings will be right where you need them.
Rover Speed's battery is fully-removable, TSA compliant and safe for all airports and airlines. It can be used to charge devices while inserted, and also while stand-alone.
As your travel companion, the Rover Speed knows where you are and sends alerts when your luggage is more than 2m away, ensuring your belongings are secure at all times.
So, whether you're roaming through the duty-free store for deals or rushing to catch a flight, this self-driving suitcase will be right there with you.
Rover Speed is manufactured with the highest quality materials that will withstand the rigorous wear and tear of travel.
It is produced by COWAROBOT, a Chinese unmanned vehicle technology company focused on building AI-powered autonomous products.
