Robotic waiter is underway in Pakistan

There was a prediction that Robots will soon control everything. The prospect was no myth and soon we will experience the same thing in Pakistan, too. Now, if you are in a restaurant and waiting for your order then possibly it would robot who will serve you order.

Pizza.com, a famous pizza restaurant, is all set to introduce “Robotic Waiter” that will dish up your favorite flavor of pizza. The interesting part is, the making of this robot waiter has been done by Pakistani developers.

The face behind this revolutionary technology is Syed Usama Aziz, who is an NUST graduate and has a wholehearted passion for the robots and technology. He developed this unique robot for his father who is an owner of Pizza.com. Usama took admission in Electrical Engineering department of NUST in 2011 and graduated in 2015. He was interested in pursuing higher technological studies from abroad and surveying the field of Robotics by studying in West. But, his parents suggested him to stay in Pakistan and study the field of robots here. He stayed and achieved something that is solely about proud.

For bringing in the advancement, he wanted to introduce an automated machine or serving and taking orders but the foreign expense was out of his range to buy such machine then he took an initiative and decided to build his own robot in Pakistan from scratch.

Now, Working for eight months and spending about Rs 0.4 million (4 lacs) on robot machine, the robot is now under beta testing period. After testing, Pakistan’s first robot waiter will be ready to function and take then pizza orders.

The robot is capable of navigating to the customer’s table, welcome the customer, serve the food and come back to the counter. It can also identify hurdles in its passageway and avoid them to continue on its joyous way.

Developing such great machine is indeed a great step from this NUST graduate in a very short period of time. Usama must get an international recognition so that the idea will inspire the young scientists.
