It’s inevitable that someday, robots will take over humans across all fields. A restaurant in Odisha has employed two new robots to serve their guests with food and beverages.
The name of the restaurant is Robot Chef and its aim is to add to its guests’ dining experience a technological twist. The two robots of the restaurant are called “Champa” and “Chameli.”
Jeet Basa, the owner of the restaurant who is also a civil engineer says that the robots work using radar and there is no specified path. Previous delivery robots were equipped with pre-defined routes to complete certain tasks.
However, these two robots’ approaches are more dynamic. Depending on the situation, they can even shift routes. Simultaneous Localization or SLAM is what they use. There are 17 different sensors which include proximity sensors, smoke and heat sensors.
The robots follow the command and are capable of speaking any language, including Odia. They can communicate with customers in Odia.
The robots will greet its guests, saying “Apana mane khushi to?” which means “Are you happy?” in English. On the front of the robots, there are touch-screen tablets via which customers can place an order.
Both robots are made completely in India. And each costs around Rs 5.5 lakh. Champa and Chameli can carry objects which have a maximum weight of 20 kilograms. And it only takes 30 minutes for the robots to be charged.
If you were thinking about how these robots would take up human jobs, the restaurant owner claims that although both robots can do more than just taking food orders, he would still assign human staff to serve customers, to offer a better experience.
