“Since the launch of Misty II, we have received interest for a variety
of use cases and wanted to provide developers a fast and easy way to get
started using Misty in a business environment. One of the most popular
requests has been to use Misty as a concierge or office greeter so we
created the Misty as a Concierge application template to give developers
a starting point to accelerate deployment,” said Ian Bernstein, Founder
and Head of Product of Misty Robotics. “With more utility application
templates planned in 2020, we will continue to support our mission to
help the community make robots a useful part of our daily lives in
business and personal settings.”

The Misty as a Concierge application template leverages her ability to
detect humans in her presence, greet them, and interact with them to
provide information and responses to their questions by integrating with
third-party APIs such as FourSquare, etc. Developers can extend the
utility of the concierge robot skill with other capabilities such as
reservations, point of sale systems, call for assistance, directions,

The application templates created by Misty Robotics will consist of the
code that facilitates the skill, an implementation guide as well as a
recorded workshop on how to use it. While initially seeded by Misty
Robotics, templates will be supported and maintained by the community
where developers are invited to extend the utility of the application
and contribute their own code.

The Misty as a Concierge application template has practical use in a
wide range of settings, including:

  • Hospitality – Hotels (in room and lobby), Luxury Suites in
    Entertainment Venues
