Gita, the revolutionary robot designed, developed and produced by Piaggio Fast Forward, (PFF), has won recognition in two important categories of the Red Dot Awards – Product Design 2020: the RED DOT seal of quality for unique and disruptive design and the most prestigious of the award categories for innovative products, the BEST OF THE BEST.
The “Red Dot: Best of the Best” is the highest distinction of the Red Dot Awards – Product Design competition and was given by the international jury to the Gita robot in the meta-category “innovative products”, for “the extraordinary level of innovative design and exceptional creativity”. The jury also appreciated “the quality and specific features of the robot, a true personal assistant that represents light mobility of the future”. In the product design category, the RED DOT seal of quality awarded to Gita is given to the world’s best products with acknowledged design and innovation qualities. Other recipients of the seal of quality include products from international brands such as Apple, Braun, Acer, Fujifilm, Bosch, and Philips.
Gita is the first innovative project of Piaggio Fast Forward (PFF), the Boston-based robotics and future mobility company of the Piaggio Group. It is a unique follow-me robot carrier, with a payload of 20 kg, designed to follow the user indoors and outdoors, at a top speed of 10 km/hour and with 4-hour battery life. Gita robots are produced in the new Piaggio Fast Forward facility in the Charlestown district of Boston. Marketing began in November last year through online channels, with a first phase focused on the US market, where the circulation of robots on city streets is already regulated.
