TOMSK, December 7 /TASS/. A robot-cook, which is created by the programmers of the company-resident of the business incubator of Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TUSUR), will be able to replace workers of fast food restaurants in cooking hot dogs, candy floss and other foods, Alexey Goryachev, the author of the project, reported to TASS.
"For now there is the first test model. Its uniqueness is that now the robot-cook needs a special environment - a specially built kitchen. Our robot can work in any room - it is constructed for each customer separately. But intelligence is necessary to create authentic dishes. And until people create artificial intelligence, such a robot is only for fast food," said Goryachev.
The basis of the robot is tabletop, where it makes the necessary operations. The machine is equipped with two or three manipulators (if necessary, there can be more), each of which performs its operation. For example, it collects sandwiches or reels candy floss up the stick from the machine standing next to it.
"Each manipulator has its own algorithm. If we need the manipulators perform an action together, we just "reflect" the program. In the future we plan to create a technical vision system, which will make the robot "smarter" - for example, to find the fallen potato, what other robots can't do as well," the developer said.
The authors of the idea believe that the robot will be popular among restaurant-keepers, primarily as a marketing tool to attract customers. "It's great to see how the robot is preparing food for you" – said Goryachev.
