The creators plan to commercialise the robot within five years.
The robot, called Deli, short for delicious delivery, has been in development since last July with a team at Korea University. Deli will be exhibited in action at a food mall in the city of Cheonan on May. It will deliver food to tables and retrieve finished dishes.
According to Woowa Brothers, its robot project will have three stage of development. The first is to develop a robot, like Deli, that can deliver food in indoor environments. The second is to develop a robot that can deliver food in compound environments with both indoor and outdoor settings, such as apartments.
The third stage will aim to make a robot that can use sidewalks and pavements to deliver food from the restaurant to the customer. The goal is to deploy the robots in harsh weather or delivery rush hours and deliver food to places that are unpopular with human delivery staff.
