Located in Bangkok, Thailand, the MK Restaurant is about to shift hospitality services to a new level by "hiring" robotic waiters.

The MK Robot Project, initiated by Bangkok University, involves the use of robotic waiters that will take orders and deliver meals.

In addition, the restaurant looks forward to using radio frequency identification (RFID) tags that will record the likes and dislikes of customers.

It is worth mentioning that in 2009 the MK Restaurants had a robot called Din Sow, but it was used mainly to entertain customers. The new robotic waiter, however, will be much more useful.

Dubbed Yumbo, the machine will be able to carry dishes, store meals on a dish and deliver them to the customer without any risk.

Just like the previous robot, Yumbo will navigate by following lines on the floor. In order to avoid collisions, the machine will make use of ultrasonic range detection, reports Plastic Pals.
