Serve-Bot:

The small helper from the University of Technology at Buchs

A team from the Interstate University of Applied Sciences of Technology at Buch (NTB) were given the task of constructing a robot that, together with another robot could run a restaurant. norelem supported the project with a ball roller.
With the aid of a second robot that was designed by a partner team at another location, the Serve-Bot from the Buchs University had to carry out tasks such as taking an order, serving bottles and plates and lighting a candle on a birthday cake.

As in a real restaurant, the robots accepted each task from in front of or behind the counter. The customers order was taken by one robot and sent to the robot behind the counter. This robot fetched the order and lay it ready on the counter. The first robot collected the order and carried it to the correct table. The robots communicated with each other over integer values which were sent by W-LAN.

The controller was not allowed to intervene during the sequence. All tasks had to be carried out by the little helpers independently. The robots orientated themselves through encoders on the floor and completed the tasks with pre-programmed routes.

The ball roller from norelem was built into the chassis as part of the three-point support system. The base of the entire robot construction was an aluminium baseplate. Two drive wheels were fastened to the rear of this plate. The third support element was the stainless steel ball roller from norelem which was bolted to the centre-front of the plate. The ball roller allowed the robot to easily spin and turn.
