The Camp BizSmart 2018 Savioke Team created their product solution, Never Wait – a restaurant robot that addressed the Savioke business case requirements. Team members are Alejandro Antorcha, Arthi Abhyanker, Matthew Cao, Wilson Choi, Lucas Figueroa, Michael Rapp and Jonathon Veis.
The Driven team was inspired by Savioke’s original Relay Robot technology. They designed “NeverWait” robot, to efficiently navigate through dynamic environments and complete a variety of tasks in order to meet the Savioke business case requirements.

Utilizing state of the art motion sensors and omnidirectional wheels, NeverWait’s agile movement and perception can compete with the best waiters.
