Our Manifesto

At Piaggio Fast Forward, our vision is to move toward a sustainable mobility ecology where cities are centered around people over cars, and value transportation systems that support healthier lifestyles, cleaner environments and stronger local economies. We have an extensive knowledge of pedestrian mobility and use this knowledge to create innovative mobile tech solutions that move the way people move—to help people walk more, walk farther, and to allow them to do more of their everyday living on foot.

Our gita robots (pronounced “jee-ta,” Italian for “short trip”), gitaplus and gitamini, are hands-free following robots that move the way you move. They carry your gear (gitaplus can hold up to 40lbs, gitamini can hold up to 20lbs) while following you using computer sensor vision, keeping pace and avoiding obstacles along the way. gitaplus and gitamini robots pair to, follow, and react to their user without the need of GPS, allowing it to travel both indoors and outdoors seamlessly.
