Would You Let This Robot Waiter Take Your Order? (Video)

A new restaurant in Ningbo, Zhejiang, is using robot serving staff to deliver dishes.

This novel approach was introduced on Nov. 24, and has attracted a lot of customers.

The robot has several functions, such as delivering meals, taking away used plates, and even describing dishes. It can say 40 basic sentences.

According to the restaurant manager, the robot uses optical-sensing magnetic strips to deliver dishes to the customers based on their seat number. Staff just put dishes on its serving tray and enter the instructions.

When arriving the assigned table, the robot stops and says: “Here are your dishes. Please take your time.”

And if you accidentally block the robot’s way, it will stop and say:

I am delivering meals, please keep clear.
