Bear Robotics. Robot food Runners: Let me save time and let the humans be humans.
Their AI-driven robots use self-driving technology to deliver food and to navigate through restaurants, avoiding people and other obstacles.
When food is ready to run, managers simply use a tablet with an app to call a robot (“Penny”) to come pick it up and whisk it off to customers. When they’re finished eating, Penny will return, ready to deliver dirty dishes to the kitchen before bringing the bill.
Penny doesn’t have arms, though, so either servers or the customers themselves still have to transfer the food from the robot to the table.
