ReWaBot (Restaurant Waiter Robot)

ReWaBot (Restaurant Waiter Robot)

The Rewabot project is presented to innovate the catering sector. The system provides for the complete management of a restaurant, with virtual menus and support in the kitchen. The most innovative part of the project is the implementation of an autonomous robotic system that plays the role of waiter. The "Vikie" waiter interacts with the customers at the tables through voice communication, is equipped with an autonomous guide and is able to move safely, through a sensor system that allows the robot to avoid obstacles along the way. The most important features of the rewabot system include the use of augmented reality and machine-learning, as well as the implementation of autonomous driving systems and the creation of web & mobile apps. Unlike other similar robots (usually of oriental origin, where the market for robots for applications relating to the catering sector is quite thriving) the "Vikie" robot is equipped with artificial neural networks and self-alignment procedures at the tables by means of augmented reality . Below is a list of the main features of the system: order management at tables and support in the kitchen, robot equipped with manual and automatic handling, video surveillance, web streaming, automatic system for positioning at tables and in home position, sensor system and autonomous driving, control and parameter setting at run-time, voice interaction and touch-panel.
