TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

The technology offer demonstrates a delivery service robot system that is based on a proprietary machine vision-based navigation technology. Instead of integrated a complex system (e.g., various sensors) to a robot, the robot is designed with a machine vision, in which the robot can be assigned tasks and controlled remotely. As a result, the robot is able to run in a higher precision, faster speed, more collaboration with other robots and lower cost.

The precision of motion was developed to address the tight operating space available for the local restaurants, warehouses and factory space. The system can also be customized to any suitable application scenarios. Furthermore, mapping for every robot can be avoided because the robots can be controlled remotely via a proprietary centralized control platform.

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

The basic specifications of the standard Restaurant Food Delivery Robot are as below

  • Dimension Height = 1000mm, Width = 500mm
  • Weight (Empty) 40kg
  • Weight (Full Load) 100kg
  • Max Speed 1000mm/second
  • Battery Life >10 hours. Charging Time 6 to 8 hours. Robot support fast replacement of battery so flat batteries can be charged off-line. The robot detects obstacles via ultrasound system.
  • The robot can be controlled remotely via the proprietary platform.

The robot can be customized for warehousing, logistics, hospitality, and healthcare purposes.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

  • Food delivery and food waste management in restaurants and hotels
  • Food and material delivery in hospitals
  • Material handling and delivery in factories
  • Goods handling and delivery in warehouse and logistics

Market Trends & Opportunities

Automation and robotics in foodservice are still relatively new and cutting-edge. However, due to the rising labor costs, and longer operating hours, service robots are getting popular.

Benefits

  • Robots eliminate user’s error. the user will not need to worry about a robot misunderstanding an order or making something incorrectly because the robot can be intervened and controlled by the user remotely.
  • The user can ensure correct portion control and reduce food waste.
  • Automated machines help to address manpower issues.
  • The robotic system is designed cost-effectively. Instead of a complex system integrated into the robot, most of the handling control was assigned and controlled remotely.
  • Mapping for each robot can be avoided.
