Robots Gain a Place in the Front of the House

With more restaurants facing worker shortages and employees taking on more work, the timing might be right for robot servers to gain traction.

When people hear about service automation they tend to think that it will create a dystopian feeling dining experience without human interaction. But in most cases the server robots only take over tasks that don’t take away from the dining experience, such as running food and dishes from the kitchen to the tables allowing the human servers to be more attentive to their guests!

Checkout some of the service robots from Richtech Robotics and how they use computer vision to navigate complex environments.
