A Bhubaneswar-based restaurant has recently introduced two indigenously developed robots to cater to its customers. The restaurant ‘Robo Chef’ located at Infocity DLF Tower area in the Odisha’s capital has been recently inaugurated.
The robots named ‘Champa’ and ‘Chameli’ have been trained with accepting orders from guests arriving at its restaurant as well as serving food, replacing waiters at the ‘smart’ restaurant.
These robots are equipped at a Jaipur-based startup and are designed and programmed with a voice-operated system to welcome and greet customers. They are developed using SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) technology and don’t need any guided path or environment modification to be installed at any restaurant.

“Inspired by the services by robots in restaurants during my visit to the US. Robo Chef is probably the first restaurant in eastern India, I wanted to do something unique and wanted to bring Odisha on the world map with innovation in the hotel industry,” Jeet Basha, Robo Chef-Owner told in an interview to India Today TV.
The SLAM technology enables a robot or any device to develop a map of its environments and adapt itself within the same in real-time. The robot automatically steers itself like humans as well as tracks the routes and accomplishes the instructed goals.
According to the manufacturer, the robot cleans better than human workers and is expected to cut costs by 50 percent. It independently cleans all surfaces such as urinals, toilets as well as washbasins and floors in restaurant or station toilets.
The robots come built with 17 sensors that can sense the environment, heat, smoke, recognize people as well as welcome and communicate with them. The droids can work for up to eight hours and can be fully charged within half-an-hour.
