Welcome to the age of Industry 4.0. A time when technology is maximised to improve the user experience.

This Robotic Café showcases how a traditional legacy machine can be turned into a connected, a fully automated machine, one with a high degree of flexibility and reliability, the kind associated with that of an industrial grade robot. Such a machine provides service that is consistent and dependable.

The Robotic Café will not only provide service but will also collect data of users and the machine itself to facilitate further data analysis to enhance future user experience.


This engaging and highly innovative industrial collaboration project involves both staffs and Final Year Project students. The aim is to help an industry partner develop a prototype machine, based on the needs of the partner. It addresses the many concerns in the industry like the need to reduce dependency on staff; improve productivity, gain efficiency, increase quality and enhance traceability. All this while reducing cost by leveraging on technology to enhance the user experience.
