gitaplus and gitamini are following, cargo-carrying robots. gitaplus can carry up to 40 pounds and gitamini can carry up to 20 pounds. They use computer sensor vision to pair to its user and follow them with the tap of a button. There is no GPS or tracking device used, just a little bit of science and magic. Designed to move the way people move, gitaplus and gitamini are built with what we like to call pedestrian etiquette and help people do more living on foot; making local living easier, smarter and more fun.

The mygita app is available for iOS and Android smartphones at the Apple App Store or Google Play. The mygita app is required for registering your robot before first use, but it is not needed for operation and day to day activities.
