A cruise automation company is in hot water after it announced that it will soon install a robot that can drive and operate an office automation system in Malaysia.
The cruise automation startup, called Cruise Automation, has been working to integrate a robotic system for the office automation industry in Malaysia for several years, according to a press release.
“This is not a new technology,” the company said in the release.
“In fact, we have been working with the Malaysian government for several months to integrate the system.
Our new system will be ready for implementation in the coming weeks.”
The press release said that the robot is designed to be able to drive an office suite, and that the company is working with local companies to develop and test the system in the country.
Cruise Automation has a $1.9 million contract with the National Labor Relations Board, according a statement on its website.
The company has said that it is in talks with local partners to make the robotic system operational in Malaysia and said that more details about the system will become available “in the coming months.”
The news of the system’s installation comes just weeks after the Cruise Automator website crashed due to a technical glitch, with one of the site’s creators blaming the outage on “technical issues.”
The website has been down for about three days, and a number of users have taken to Twitter to complain about the outage.
The company’s website has remained up since the issue, with users asking for the system to be fixed.
The website’s administrator, who goes by the handle @kurtee, said in a tweet that he had not yet heard from the cruise automation team to confirm the installation of the robot.
“It has been several months since we had any contact with the cruise management team,” the administrator wrote.
“We are working to resolve the technical issues as soon as possible.”
Kurtees Twitter account has since been taken down.
