SoftBank Robotics Group Corp (SBRG), a worldwide leader in robotics solutions, and IRIS OHYAMA Corp will launch the “Keenbot IRIS EDITION '' serving and transporting robots of Keenon Robotics from 2th of February 2022,in Japan.


Keenbot IRIS EDITION will be jointly developed by SoftBank Robotics,IRIS OHYAMA Inc. which has high solution proposal capabilities, and Keenon Robotics which has excellent development capability.


In Japan, in addition to the declining working population due to the declining birthrate and aging population, the declining working population due to the spread of the COVID-19 infection have become major issues.


In particular, the number of employees in the food and beverage industry has decreased by more than 10% from about 5.49 million (August 2019) before the spread of the new COVID-19 infection to about 4.88 million (August 2021).


In addition, there is a high demand for hygiene awareness in daily life and infection control measures due to non-contact, and serving and transporting robots are attracting attention.



Under such circumstances, "Keenbot IRIS EDITION", which Softbank Robotics and IRIS OHYAMA will start selling in Japan, is a robot equipped with a maximum of 4 trays and compatible with large-capacity serving and lowering. The low center of gravity and robust housing design realizes stable transportation, and the touch panel makes it easy to operate, making it suitable for operation in a wide range of venues such as restaurants, golf courses, and hotels.


"Keenbot IRIS EDITION" has already conducted demonstrations in "Singapore Seafood Republic Tokyo" and "Yukai Resort Katayamazu Onsen NEW MARUYA Hotel" , and “Pepper PARLOR” in Japan.


Softbank Robotics and IRIS OHYAMA will add a new "Keenbot IRIS EDITION" to the lineup in addition to the serving and transporting robot "Servi Iris Edition" on sale, according to the store scale, usage environment, serving capacity, etc. of the introducing company. , We will make more appropriate and flexible product proposals, and respond to various needs such as widespread use of serving and transport robots, operational efficiency, and non-contact.
