Seeing the video, at first it is not understood what the robot is doing. Then on paying attention it is found that he is chewing the food, but this process is being completed in the plate itself. The robot tests 9 varieties of fried eggs and tomatoes in three different stages. Its findings could prove to be an important link in automated food preparation by robots. It is possible that in the coming time only robots will start cooking. Along with this, he will also be able to test the test.
These findings, in the journal Frontiers in Robotics and AI published Has happened.
Researchers say that by imitating the process of chewing and tasting human food, robots may one day be able to make food that people will like. They will be able to cook such food, which can be modified according to the needs of each individual.
The first author of the paper was Grzegorz Souchacki of Cambridge’s Department of Engineering. said That it is important for robots to be able to taste the food they are cooking. Researchers have found that by understanding the perspective of the human chef, the capacity of the robot has increased. Dr Arsene Abdulali, the Department of Engineering and co-author of the paper, said that the human brain responds continuously during the act of chewing food. Abdulali said his intention is to mimic the process of chewing and tasting in a robotic system, to create a tastier product.
To get better results, the researchers added different amounts of tomatoes to each dish. Increase or decrease the amount of salt as well. The robot tested these in a pattern and produced a reading in a matter of seconds. Later, the researchers mixed all the dishes together and gave the robot to test. The robot again prepared their readings. The researchers’ findings suggest that robots were far better at making this assessment than the electronic methods used to test the salt in food. Researchers hope to further improve the robot chef, so that he can test not only salty but also sweet food.
