If you have a restaurant and feel the need to speed up your operations and processes, why not decide to automate your restaurant and help boost productivity and save money.
You would say that may be the future of home automation technology, but in fact, it is actually happening now. With everyday machines coming out smarter, functional and artificially intelligent, all thanks to the power of robotics.
How it all started
Although historical records dating way back to the second and third century B.C when description that fit an artificial human when a Chinese mechanical engineer called Yan Shi presented King Mu of Zhiu a human-shaped figure that was capable of doing mechanical functions.
It was first historically recognized as a concept developed by Russian writer Karel Capek back in the early 1920’s in a book ho wrote titled R.U.R (Rossum’s Universal Robots) for which he used the term robota from the Slavic tongue which meant labor.
The story revolved around a time where a factory was manufacturing artificial people called robots and bore a very striking resemblance and even carried our mechanical functions like man in doing tasks and chores.
This followed decades later by science fiction author Isaac Asimov with a book called Three Laws of Robotics that sparked additional interest in the quest of making breakthrough discovery in robotics to make work easier for man.
Automating restaurant operations
Robotics is a combined discipline of electronic, mechanical and computer engineering sciences that develops automation or substituting human physical function with mechanical alternatives.
Robotics technology is the application of robotics in the everyday life of man.
Robots and robotic technology is everywhere, but the reason why we do not get to notice it is because we may be too preoccupied with things around us and see it commonly everyday that we get to not take a second look the realize that it is a product of robotics technology.
According to the International Federation Robotics, Asia is by far the largest market for industrial robots in the world and sales are increasing year after year.
Restaurant automation involves the use of robots to help in restaurant operations from timed cooking, food service through motorized conveyor or other automation processes that can also help in food preparation.
Programs can also be developed to customize food service suitable for your restaurant operations now that advanced technologies are available to cater to those customizable needs.
The benefits of robotics
With rapid advancements in the fields of robotics technology, recent practices are now more into the development of safer, smarter and affordable robots which can be fielded for almost every possible work that can be done by human hands.
One of the biggest advantages for robots is that it can be fielded for work in hazardous environments, which man may not be able to withstand, especially when working for long periods of time.
Increased productivity and efficiency
Robots can also be working longer hours with the same level of accuracy and productivity.
Another benefit is that it would work rapidly and may be more affordable in terms of operational costs where a robot may be able to do the work of several men in the workplace like product assembly, welding, lifting, setting and tempering just to name a few.
