Smart tray return robots in Singapore

A sighting of smart tray return robots in the hawker center located at Jade West Street, Singapore.

The hawker center specially introduced three smart tray return robots to shuttle between the diners. This is the first local hawker center uses robots to collect tray from its patrons.

When the patrons return their dishes tray to the robot, the robot will thank them in English. When someone blocks its path, the robot will ask the patrons politely to give way.

The robot looks similar to a normal tray storage, except it has some light on the shelf, and a pair of big eyes on the screen. There are about 50 robots currently placed in 14 food court and hawker centers.
