Picnic’s pizza-making robot will serve food to CES 2020 attendees

In early January, Las Vegas will host the international electronics exhibition CES 2020, in which many new devices and inventions will be shown. The more attention-grabbing thing in this event will be to see a machine making pizzas there instead of a person.

Picnic, a Seattle-based innovator of food production technology and Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) solutions, announced that its automated food assembly system to serve attendees of the world’s largest technology event. The company has entered into a partnership with the Las Vegas Convention Center for this.

Picnic’s automated pizza assembly robot interacts with technologies of artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and automation. It is capable of producing up to 300 pizzas with a diameter of 30.5 cm per hour.

Working at CES 2020 is not Picnic’s debut. A prototype of such a robot is already being used at the T-Mobile Park in Seattle, and in late December, the robot will work at a Christmas event.

Allegedly, since artificial intelligence is the part of the platform, the robot is constantly learning, so it can be quite flexible in cooking. Picnic’s pizza robot requires only a small area for installation, and modular, configurable equipment makes it flexible enough to integrate with a wide range of stationary and mobile kitchens.

Picnic platform is initially focused on the production of pizza in large volumes, but it can be adapted to other categories of food.

Is the Picnic’s robot made pizza delicious? We will find out in a few weeks. CES 2020 starts on January 7, 2020.
