Here's what the owner said about the robot's purchase
"We had been to Vijayawada to buy equipment for our restaurant when we saw a humanoid up for sale. We took a selfie with it and decided to buy it as it would entertain children." He added that the machine was manufactured in China.
You get 25 hours of service with 2 hours' charge
The robot waiter isn't as highly functional as you may think but does its job pretty well.
It can deliver as many as 25 hours of service on a single two-hour-long charge, which makes it ideal for a waiter's job.
Additionally, the machine even recognizes human movement automatically and stops as and when someone moves towards it.
Restaurants have been using machines but not widely
Robotics is the future but Indians are yet to accept the technology into their lives.
In fact, statistically speaking, this is only the third restaurant in the country to employ a robot for the job of a waiter.
Meanwhile, in the US and China, robots are being re-purposed for a range of tasks, starting from warehouse jobs and customer service to food delivery.
