MILITARY-GRADE ROBOTS DELIVER PIZZAS
    2016-04-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    军工机器人送披萨

    Australia’s biggest pizza chain Domino’s is now trying to take their operation to the next level by having any pizza ordered ready in three minutes and delivered in 10 minutes.

    Domino’s chief executive Don Meij has called the innovative move Project 3-10. The latest technology has already been used to halve cooking times to four minutes, and Meij reckons that the goal of 10-minute deliveries in Australia could come to fruition within three years.

    A way to improve efficiency is the development of a military robot that was designed to dodge bullets in the battlefield, but will now deliver pizza to your doorstop.

    Domino’s Australia has been working in a development lab with Australian startup* company Marathon Robotics for about six months to create DRU, the world’s first autonomous* delivery vehicle.

    The white, four-wheeled robotic unit can travel up to speeds of 20 km/h and is able to navigate the streets independently, with a built-in sensory system that uses lasers to identify obstacles and calculate the best path to take.

    Inside DRU’s sleek white exterior lies a temperature-controlled box designed to keep your pizza’s piping hot and your drinks cold that rises up from inside the device to allow customers to collect their meal after imputing a unique code.

    Consumers will have to meet the 190-kilogram robot out on the curb as he is not yet able to climb stairs or open doors. However, the added effort will likely go unnoticed once they start engaging with DRU’s “cheeky” artificial intelligence*.

    Meij said there would be sophisticated security cameras fitted to the device that will instantly transmit images to the cloud.(SD-Agencies)
