ForwardX Robotics Launches the OVIS Suitcase, Innovative Luggage That Follows at Your Side

The OVIS Suitcase is a New TSA-Compliant Carry-On that Employs State-of-the-Art AI to Help Make Travel Easier And More Effortless

ForwardX Robotics, a global artificial intelligence and mobile robotics company, has launched the OVIS Suitcase, a first-of-its-kind carry-on that automatically follows travelers wherever they go – hands-free and always at their side. Using a combination of computer vision technology and artificial intelligence, the OVIS Suitcase can accompany users throughout their journey – from airports, to city streets, and right into their hotel room.

The OVIS Suitcase represents a leap forward in luggage, allowing people to move effortlessly without the hassle of juggling their belongings and worry about leaving bags unattended. This helped ForwardX complete one of the most successful Indiegogo campaigns, raising more than $1.3 million (USD)

The suitcase is part of the new OVIS brand of premium luggage designed to elevate the way people travel. According to internal market research, 67% of consumers consider travel to be stressful. With this in mind, OVIS was created with the aim of alleviating some of the stress consumers commonly experience while traveling today while at the same time addressing a growing movement among modern travelers to seek out upgraded experiences that make travel easier and more pleasant.

Equipped with a TSA-approved lock and removable battery, the OVIS meets all US government safety and travel regulations regarding the access of the transportation facilities and the stowing of luggage. The suitcase’s battery, which is similar in size and weight to one used for a laptop, can be easily removed and re-inserted. Despite all the advanced technology embedded in the OVIS suitcase, it weighs just under 10 lbs.
