Singapore-based company, Infinium Robotics, is applying advanced drone technology as a way to further automate the job of waiter. Promoted as a technology that can reduce manpower costs and maximize the use of dining room space, Infinium-Serve uses individual drones to deliver food from kitchen to dining room patrons.
Pre-programmed routes and a proprietary collision avoidance technology prevent the drones from running into customers, employees, or other drones. Infinium has partnered with a Singapore restaurant chain to roll out working versions of the system later in 2015.
In addition to the operational benefits the Infinium system can deliver, the “wow” factor the drone waiters will lend to those operations that first adopt it is expected to represent a significant competitive advantage.
