Zume can predict when you want a pizza, and uses robots to make them
Zume records customers’ ordering habits, which means they can predict incoming pizza orders and start preparing before the orders actually arrive.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA — A Silicon Valley startup has developed a new way of making and delivering pizza: using robots.
According to the Mercury News, Zuma pizza is in fact made by humans and robots. The pizza dough is kneaded by a human before it is passed on to robots on a conveyer belt. The robots then place sauce onto the pizza and spread it around before a member of the kitchen staff puts toppings onto the pizza. The pizza is then placed into an oven by another robot, where it is partially baked.
Zume’s delivery truck is equipped with 56 ovens designed to cook the pizza completely within four minutes before it arrives at its intended destination. This ensures the food stays hot for the customer.
The company also uses artificial intelligence to record customers’ ordering habits. This allows them to predict incoming pizza orders and start preparing before the orders actually arrive.
According to Electronics 360, Zume is developing new robots in order to automate the whole production line in the future.
