Hyperspecialized kitchen robots are finding their way into the catering industry, to slowly but surely.

We've already seen on many occasions and in many different ways. Sometimes as robotic arms employees to turn to a hamburger steak being cooked on a griddle. At other times as mixer robot capable of extracting ingredients prepared in advance of its drawers and mix to create a simple recipe pie plate or bowl. They have also been presented to the public automatic machines able to make coffee without human intervention at any time, 3D printing and food that is also being spurred much encouragement in Spain certainly has a robotic component.

Why the news that Chowbotics is it taking economic performance to one of your bets is not surprising.

Chowbotics is a robotics company founded by Deepak Sekar. From its headquarters in California It has created the robot Sally, specialized in making vegetable salad. The most curious of all is that just half a hundred of these robots are available worldwide. Here is the true heart of the matter. How could Chowbotics taste success when the number of operating units is so low?

The secret is where food mixers. This type of automated machines They work best in environments where demand for their products is continuous. That is its main advantage over a cook or human seller. While people need breaks and balance their working life with their personal life, los robots Sally de Chowbotics work the 24 hours of the day; without a rest, continuously. The only case in which the machines fail to perform their functions if there is damage to the power system, and that's unlikely to Sally units to hospitals.

Indeed, good performance are perceiving in Chowbotics kitchen robots that work should be as Healthy food vending machines in hospitals. First, people in these facilities are more likely to eat healthy foods. This is due in part to the selection of existing food plants is reduced hospital, but also the consumer is exposed to long term result that poor feeding may have on the human body: weakened immune system, obesity, susceptibility to heart disease, etc.

On the other hand, trajín in a hospital is continuous. While it is true that the mental image that prevails at the thought of a health of these features is the open spaces dominated by silence, the reality is that even within this self-imposed calm doctors, specialists, nursing staff, internal and patients come and go constantly.

So Sally, the hybrid robot kitchen and vending machine, this exposed to a large volume of potential consumers, which it is what ultimately led to direct Chowbotics to stardom.

Expectations founder and CEO have been largely overcome. So that the return on investment make buying a logical unit Sally, hospitals have to sell seven bowls of salad every day through the device. Sekar exposes the case of Sally unit located in Las Vegas, what He is receiving a demand for a 120 boles every day. Louisiana Things are not very different, there have installed one of the robots cuisine at the North Oaks Health Care Hospital, thanks to technological innovation now nail 60 O 70 people have access to tasty salads Sally while in the building, and that given that the PLC only takes a few weeks in place and is not well known.

For business venture Chowbotics, the fact that hospital cafeterias close at around two in the morning is being helpful. In this way, for much of the day only they have to compete against other vending machines, which they are comparatively more outdated and less consumption invite.

A causa del éxito inicial que están experimentando, el equipo de Sekar está evaluando las posibilidades de expansión geográfica. Los hospitales han pasado de ser una idea feliz a convertirse en el principal objetivo a la hora de escalar la operación de restauración de la compañía.

Cuando se pongan manos a la obra, en Chowbotics contarán con una ventaja adicional. Además del bajo nivel de competición que existe en el entorno, Sekar está recopilando un gran volumen de información sobre los hábitos y costumbres de consumo de su clientela potencial.

Esto lo han conseguido gracias a las capacidades IoT de Sally. Cada vez que un cliente decide tomar una ensalada y entra en el menú del robot de cocina para hacer su selección de ensalada, toda la información de la transacción se remite a las oficinas de Chowbotics para su almacenamiento y análisis en una base de macrodatos.

De esta manera se pueden inferir tendencias en las mejores recetas, la cantidad de ingredientes que hace falta reponer y con qué frecuencia debe ejecutarse esta tarea, cuándo se realizan las ventas, qué precios son más llamativos para la clientela y otros datos del estilo que ayudarán, sin duda alguna, a que Chowbotics realice mejores decisiones comerciales.

Pero lejos de ser su única estrategia, la empresa de Sekar ha decidido no apostar todo al mismo número. Diversificar es de sabios. De ahí que desde el año pasado se esté trabajando para que Sally trabaje con algo más que ensaladas. En estos precisos momentos las primeras versiones de Sally equipadas para preparar boles de comida india, mediterránea y latina están saliendo de fábrica. Con estos nuevos modelos se pretende alcanzar a un mayor número de comensales interesados en comer de forma saludable en cualquier momento del día, incluso cuando por circunstancias extraordinarias están desplazados fuera de su vivienda habitual.

Sally está cambiando el ambiente en los pasillos de los hospitales, y parece que lo seguirá haciendo en años venideros.
