Looking for Waiters to Serve at your Restaurant? Why not get Flying Drone Waiters!
India-based Flew Up Technologies launches the Flying Drone Waiters for the UAE, India markets.
Dubai, October 21, 2015: A first of its kind concept, India-based (Kozhikode) Flew Up Technologies today launched their ‘Flying Drone Waiter’ at the Kerala IT Pavilion at the ongoing Gitex Technology Week 2015 at the Dubai World Trade Center.

Once the waiter takes in an order from a customer, the dishes ordered will be served by the flying drone waiter. The area of the restaurant is mapped using a computer programme and the flying path within the restaurant is prepared and integrated into the software and drone waiters will be controlled using smart phones or tabs by the restaurant staff to ensure that the order reaches the right customer and does not create a flutter at the restaurant as it flies above the people with the orders.
“The robotic waiters will help the human waiters to serve their customers more efficiently and the opportunity to spend more time interacting with diners, taking orders and clearing dishes. Whizzing from kitchens to tables with drinks and plates of food on board, the new wave of autonomous drones is already a burgeoning trend in Singapore and parts of UK.” Said Aliriza Abdul Gaffoor, CEO, Flewup Technologies.
“The drones need a lot of customization based on the requirements of each restaurant. Even the weight of food and drinks that a drone needs to carry can be customized by making changes in the hardware.  We are hopeful that this trend may pick up in UAE restaurants as 3D robotic technology zooms into the hospitality sector. We are also working on drones that can carry food and drinks more than 2 kg weight.” He added.
Flewup Technologies last year at Gitex had launched coconut plucking drones called ‘Flying Electronic Wonder Robots (Flewro)’. The drone with robotic arms can pluck coconut or dates from their trees. The drone flies to the top of trees and the camera attached to the drone will stream live visuals to the mobile app. The drone then stabilizes its flight and then the robotic arm tests if the fruit is ripe. On confirming the ripeness, the secondary arm fitted with sharp razors pluck the fruit.
“It is interesting to see small companies like Flewup and many others in Kerala coming up with innovative projects that has a huge potential in the global market. Kerala IT’s aim is to provide a platform for them to enter newer markets with their products so that they can gain through the initial market penetration.” Said Technopark CEO, K G Girish Babu.
