Robotic restaurants are no more a dream now. In countries like Japan, China you probably will spot a restaurant with robots serving food inside. Recently this concept has come to Coimbatore in Chennai, India.
A group of five youngsters, who are apassionate about theme-based restaurants, have opened first robot themed restaurant in country.
Robots pick up the food from the kitchen and deliver it at the customer’s table. Customers can pick up the food from the tray.
The robot will also be able to detect someone blocking its way and request them to move out of their way.
One of five partners, Venkatesh, travelled abroad, and got fascinated by watching robots served him at some restaurants in China and even Africa. After taking inspiration from there he decided to bring the concept to India.
The youths, who were already running an aeroplane themed Chinese restaurant, began working on sourcing robots that could serve in restaurants and figuring out how to program and repair them. They sourced them from a company abroad. In starting Venkatesh went to the company and spent some time learning to program, operate and even repair robots.
