Pudu Robotics’ BellaBot made its debut at a Sushi Island restaurant in Canada, and so far, it’s been a major hit with the patrons. This innovative robot is capable of easily moving, orienting, and navigating all by itself in highly dynamic and crowded environments. It comes equipped with induction trays that enable it to deliver food to 3-4 tables at a time. When it arrives at a table, a light strip beside the tray starts to flash, reminding the customers to pick up the food.
Once the food is removed from the tray, the light strip turns off, at which point the robot will move on to the next table. Aside from delivery mode, BellaBot’s Cruise mode enables the robot to move back and forth to deliver snacks or buffet food. Or, switch to cruise mode and have it greet guests walk around at the front door. Last, but not least, the birthday mode has BellaBot delivering birthday cakes, complete with music.
