OFweekRobotAccording to the British “Daily Mail” report on June 28, five students from the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom have collaborated to invent a Robot that can pour wine, and claim that the Robot can one day replace the work of bartenders. The five students were commissioned by local engineering firm Quality Bearings to work on the invention. Students make regular trips to Saltaire Brewery in West Yorkshire to study how bartenders pour Saltaire Gold.
They created a wine pouring robot based on the movements of the bartender pouring wine.
The pouring robot is equipped with an interactive screen that people can tap to choose the beer they want to drink. Then, click the button, the beer bottle will automatically tilt, the beer slides into the cup, and the amount and speed of pouring will automatically adjust with the amount of beer in the cup.
The robot project was officially launched in October last year, and the wine pouring robot basically took shape after Christmas. Just yesterday, the pouring robot was evaluated at the Saltaire brewery. The experts tested the taste of the beer poured by the pouring robot, the stability of the pouring and the wear and tear of the robot. The test results were very satisfactory.
Jim Dickinson, one of the five students involved in making the robot, said: “We are very proud of how the robot performed today, and it poured almost perfectly every time.” He also said, “The imitation tune The bartending style of the bartender is very difficult. In the beginning, we had some issues with stability. Because the robot moved too much and it would affect the stability of the pouring. Now the robot is doing very well, and we are very happy. Maybe very Soon we’ll see it widely used.”
