Dorado is Launching AI Robots, to Fulfil its Vision for Smart City
Here’s a classic big city dilemma for you
You’re in the park, at work, at university, or even at a festival. You’re hungry. Problem is there are no good restaurants around. What do you do?
Back in the old days, you had to walk to the nearest restaurant or wait one hour for food delivery, but not anymore. Dorado is planning to shake up the restaurant business by having autonomous AI robots deliver restaurant food to such traditionally poorly serviced places as parks and offices.
Jonas Karosas, the Co-founder of Dorado, explains that demand for easily accessible food at work or in areas such as parks has been growing steadily, but the delivery industry has not adapted to these changes, “The decision sprung from issues that the delivery industry has always battled with: delivering in urban areas has always been an imperfect art.”
“The idea is this – we have a network of thousands of restaurants who use our platform. Each restaurant has a robot assigned to them. They put their own dishes such as sushi, salads, and drinks into these robots, which have refrigerated compartments in them to store and display the food. The robot is then deployed into an area where there are lots of people, but not many options for food. Whenever the food or drinks run out, we receive a notification, and using our network of couriers, we can then fill the robot up again.”
The robots will quite literally learn the city, building internal maps as they cover new areas. And, it seems they’re up for the challenge.
“It’s been interesting … going around and watching people’s reactions, both the merchants and customers, but also the public as the robots come down the street,” says Erfan Hesam, Co-founder and Chief Logistics and Innovations Officer.
“People obviously have tons of questions and are really fascinated by the robots, taking pictures with them — there are all of these really interesting social implications of having robots complete these deliveries. It’s great exposure for Dorado, as robots are literary moving advertising billboards for the company. Our plan is to deploy such robots in all the main cities in the world.”
Dorado’s long-term goal is to use these robots to drive down the cost of deliveries by around 80 to 90 percent, as well as open a whole new class of commerce in the city. What’s more their robots are not only intended for restaurants, but all business stores. From food stores, to pharmacies, to electronic stores and beyond; the future looks bright for Dorado’s expanding fleet of delivery robots.
Dorado is a next-generation on-demand delivery company, which has revealed that it plans to raise $55 million via its ICO. Dorado has already ‘pre-heated the oven” by raising $4 million from institutional investors, including the ICO-focused Goldfish Fund, and it plans to offer the remaining allocation to the general public.
