Drone workers may be a reality not too far off, as Singapore got its first taste of robotic waiters this past weekend at Timbre @ Substation, a live music restaurant and bar. Developed by Singapore-based Infinium Robotics, autonomous drones were used to deliver drinks and dishes. Flying back and forth from the kitchen to a drop-off area, the robots were created to take the brunt work out of having to haul dishes in and out. The drones are also able to dodge any stationary objects, detect other drones, and even fly in formation if necessary. Human waiters aren’t out of a job for now, as the drones themselves do not deliver straight to tables, yet. Although not completely replacing humans, the role of the drones are aimed at allowing waiters more time to focus on customer service. Looking at a full launch by the end of the year, the drones are available to restaurants for a “low seven figure sum.” Time will tell whether this will be the future for the F&B industry, but let us know your thoughts.
