A 12ft-square robot vending machine is the way of the future for fast food
January 26, 2023
A 12ft-square robot vending machine is the way of the future for fast food
The fast food sector is revolutionizing with the emergence of robotic vending machines that utilize artificial intelligence technology to prepare various foods, such as pizza, burgers and idli among other foods.

Attention!!! Do not confuse it with regular vending machines that deliver readymade food packets in exchange for coins and rupee notes. Here, the discussion is about the fast food robot, which produces a hot, fresh pizza or burger in a few minutes without any workers, and allows consumers to choose the different toppings or sauces.

Artificial intelligence is establishing its footprints in the fast food industry for taking orders, producing food, and serving it to related customers. Even serving food and drinks during the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing was done by robots.

National University of Science and Technology (NUST) engineers collaborated with Karfidov Lab to create a functional prototype of a vending machine that makes healthy food. According to the engineers, the machine cooks meals made of vegetables and cereals in 30 to 60 seconds, making it ideal for people who desire to lead healthy lifestyles or have allergies and other particular illnesses.

In early 2022, the Newport Centre Mall in Jersey City installed RoboBurger, a robot vending machine that can cook and serve beef burgers. A grill to cook the burgers and a refrigerator to keep them cold is within the machine, along with an automatic cleaning system that keeps the robot kitchen tidy. Such fast-food robotic vending machines could be a common sight in airports, offices, universities, factories, and military bases.
