One day robots may replace all of us. In fact, over in New Delhi, India, some jobs are already being replaced, but this one could be a first in India. A restaurant has rolled out a pair of robots named Champa and Chameli who take orders and serve customers.
The owner of the restaurant, Basa, says that while robots in restaurants in India aren’t new, his robots are the first of their kind. This is apparently because these robots can move around freely, while at the same time they are also made in India, so they are unlike other automations that are typically imported from China.
Basa says, “Though there are several restaurants in India where machines are serving customers, Robo Chef is probably the first restaurant where there is no special track for them. They can move on in any uniform surface.” He also adds, “The robots have 17 kinds of sensors that sense the environment, heat, even smoke, identify persons, greet and welcome people.”
Robots being used in the service industry are becoming more common. Countries like Japan and Korea already employ robots in many places, like in shopping malls and airports where they can be used to greet customers and passengers, and also give you additional information when you need it. The future is here.
