FANUC Robots Partner with NFL's Jaguars on Fan-Friendly Activities
Fans visiting TIAA Bank Field on game day this season can interact with one of five new robots located throughout the stadium.
FANUC America has partnered with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars to provide five new robots that can interact with fans at different locations throughout TIAA Bank Field.
“We are excited for the opportunity to show FANUC robots to Jaguars fans,” says Mike Cicco, FANUC president. “Companies both large and small are implementing robots and automation to help them meet their productivity goals. Ultimately, we help companies solve production challenges and stay competitive. We hope our fun and interactive demonstrations encourage people to see what automation can do for them.”
The robots include “Flo,” who helps bartenders in the Bud Light Party Zone pour beer for fans, and “Lenny,” stationed in the Lower US Assure Club West, who faces off against fans in a “running back challenge” by passing a handheld ring along a zigzagged route. “Cheer” will appear later this season to hoist a Jaguars flag in Camp Grunt Style to celebrate a touchdown.
