A FLEET of waiter robots that can take your order and serve your dishes has been popping up in food establishments.
Dubbed Servi, the robot waiter was developed by Bear Robotics, an AI company based in California.

Servi uses state-of-the-art technology to take patron’s orders, bring out their food, and even clear their tables.
There are currently two models that Bear Robotics has made available: Servi, and Servi Mini.
How the bot works
Both models are 100 percent self-driving and are built with an advanced LiDar sensor.
It also comes equipped with several cameras that help the bot to move around intelligently and safely.
A feature called “Robot Return” notifies Servi when to return to its post thanks to internal weight sensors.
If a restaurant or food establishment wants to buy more than one bot, the fleet can also synchronize with one another to avoid collisions.
Each robot can operate for up to 12 hours on a single 4-hour charge.

Each Servi can carry a payload of up to 6 pounds and load two trays.
They also each feature a drawer for collecting dishes and a touch-screen interface system.
According to Bear Robotics, Servi models have made more than 86million deliveries.
And the bot can now be found in restaurants, hotels, casinos, senior living facilities, and arenas around the world.
Bear Robotics first launched Servi in 2018, and in March 2022, the company raised $81 million in a Series B funding round.
