While relay robots have been introduced to the hospitality industry as early as last year, Hotel Jen by Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts is the first international hotel brand to use them in Asia.

Using advanced technology to navigate around people and objects, Relay delivers items quickly, safely, and reliably. Since initial commercial deployment in 2014, Relay robots have made over 150,000 autonomous deliveries.
