The robot chef has learned how to cook French fries and 18 more dishes

Buck Jordan, Founder and CEO of Miso Robotics, told Engadget that the transition from power to

full range of services for exclusively takeaway foodand delivery has resulted in many restaurants "losing money and just trying to stay afloat." It's worth considering that when using delivery apps like UberEats, it cuts each order by more than 30%.

This is why the company announced on Tuesday thatmakes the latest version of Flippy commercially available worldwide. This smarter, more capable and immune to airborne infection robot was announced today.

To begin with, the company optimized itsChefUI software to "help kitchen workers with responsive communication and workflow." With this system, food service workers can not only see what orders are in the queue for cooking, but through the integration of Intel RealSense cameras, they can also monitor the internal temperature of food, preventing undercooked food from entering the kitchen, and even adjust the queue so that orders are prepared in the desired order and at the same time.

For example, Jordan notes that for cookingfries only take about 3 minutes compared to 10 minutes for a hamburger. So instead of leaving the fries under the heating lamp for 7 minutes before the hamburger is ready, Flippy will know to put the fries in the butter only 3 minutes before the hamburger is done cooking.

Flippy can cook 19various dishes - from corn dogs to tandoori chickens. However, the manufacturer promises to increase the robot's skills when it can be trained, thanks to an advanced machine learning system developed by Miso.

To help at least partially reduce the dangergetting infected with the coronavirus while working shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the chefs, Flippy can be fitted with a glass partition. It will help isolate the robot from personnel breathing during the cooking process.

It's worth noting that Flippy has also received NSF security certification.
