StarHub and ST Kinetic roll out laundry robots in hotels

Telco's move is part of its 'Connected Building' initiative to bring Internet of Things solutions to its clients

The TUG robots can reduce what used to be a tedious seven-step process - which entails housekeeping staff manually sorting out soiled linen into piles by linen type - to a three-step automated one, thanks to the use of radio-frequency identification tagging and smart carts.


ROBOTS transporting dirty linen from guest rooms to a laundry collection point could soon become a common sight in hotels here, following a new partnership by StarHub and ST Kinetics, which will introduce Aethon TUG robots to hotels to streamline their laundry processes.
