Robotic suitcase is a smart device, which follows the owner. Robotic suitcase are equipped with two or four wheels to follow their owner. Furthermore, robotic suitcase are equipped with other functionalities such as USB charging, Bluetooth, fingerprint locking and unlocking system, and weight monitoring system that can show the total bag weight on the smart phone through Bluetooth connectivity. Robotic suitcase technology is in nascent stage currently, but it is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period due to increasing adoption of internet of things (IoT) technology. However, in some situations the product fails to operate. For instance, the bag fails to follow, when owner starts running. Moreover, in some cases such as complicated road directions, suitcase fails to follow the right direction. These factors are expected to hamper the market adoption of robotic suitcase. Robotic suitcases are available in two operational modes viz., vertical and horizontal. Companies such as Travelmate Robotics offers both vertical and horizontal types of robotic suitcase.
Factors driving growth of the Robot Suitcase Market
Ease of use and faster connectivity are the major factors that are expected to drive the growth of robotic suitcase market over the forecast period. Faster connectivity will enable transmission of information related to suitcase to the server which will enable owner to track suitcase through mobile devices such as smartphones. Moreover, the drop in prices of the components used in robotic suitcase such as sensors, cameras, and others are another factor that can create growth opportunities for the manufacturers in the robotic suitcase market during the forecast period.
However, robotic suitcase collects the data related to bags location, weight of the bag, battery capacity of the bag and others. Data related to the location of the bag is crucial to the consumer data privacy and data theft. This factor can hinder the growth of the robotic suitcase market over the forecast period.
