In terms of hardware, using multiple sensors such as 3D depth cameras, the food delivery robot and delivery robot can map an area of 10,000 square meters, and the detection distance is greater than 20m. It will stop when encountering obstacles at any angle, preventing the dishes from falling and ensuring transportation safety. It is worth noting that when we purchase robots and robot customization, we should pay attention to the shock absorption of food delivery robots and delivery robots. Some intelligent food delivery robots with relatively reliable quality will adopt an independent suspension system to effectively absorb the impact caused by uneven ground. Even if the road conditions are not good, food delivery robots and distribution robots can keep walking smoothly and achieve professional shock absorption. , to prevent the appearance of the dishes from being affected by the bumps on the road. When we purchase robots and custom-made robots, it is best to choose some food delivery robots that can be configured with multiple driving wheels (such as universal wheels, auxiliary wheels, etc.), which can be adjusted according to the slope of the ground, which helps to achieve uphill, passing It is more convenient and flexible to reach places such as hurdles and ditch crossings.
The “2021 China Robot Industry Research Report” released by 36 Krypton shows that the number of start-up projects in my country’s robot track will remain stable in 2021, the industry’s 28th effect will be obvious, and leading companies will continue to receive capital support. According to the Whale Database, as of October 31, 2021, a total of 4,653 robot-related projects have been included. Among them, there are 673 projects from seed round to A round, 172 projects from A+ round to C round, 22 projects from C+ round to Pre-IPO, 472 strategic investment and M&A projects, and 3,254 unfunded projects.
According to the data provided by IFR and the Chinese Institute of Electronics, the overall market size of my country’s robotics industry is expected to reach 83.9 billion yuan in 2021, more than double that of 2017, with an average annual compound growth rate of 20.2%. From the perspective of market structure, industrial robots accounted for 53%, and service robots accounted for 47%.
Among them, the development speed of food delivery robots under the category of service robots is at the forefront. According to the previous statistical analysis data of NCBD (Meal Collection), a big data research service organization for catering, the market size of food delivery robots in China in 2019 is only 220 million yuan, and in 2020 The annual scale of food delivery robots may reach about 1.2 billion yuan, and is expected to be close to 15 billion yuan in 2025. At that time, the proportion of food delivery robots in the overall service robot market will rise from about 1% in 2019 to about 10%. 9 times.
In the past three years, affected by the epidemic, “contactless service” has stood out among various service methods. The demand for food delivery robots has increased. Food delivery robots can also enable catering companies to achieve the goal of “reducing costs and increasing efficiency”. Looking for By the second growth curve, it is estimated that the sales of food delivery robots will reach 60,000 to 70,000 units in 2023. Taking the single-store operating data released by Qinglang Intelligent, a leading enterprise of catering robots, as a reference: during the New Year’s Day holiday, the average single-store delivery is 150 times per day, and more than 300 trays are delivered, and the highest delivery volume in a single day reaches 480 trays, which is nearly 400 tables. Customers can enjoy contactless delivery with more peace of mind. Judging from the application effect, the food delivery robot has significantly improved the operating efficiency of the restaurant, and by reducing the workload of the waiters, it will help the restaurant improve the service experience and meet the needs of young people in the new era.
At present, the key components produced in the upstream of the commercial robot industry chain are gradually replaced by domestic products, which reduces the cost of complete machine manufacturing and promotes commercialization. On the one hand, the mid-stream robot manufacturers have the core algorithm, on the other hand, they have the ability to develop, design, process and assemble the whole machine, and some leading manufacturers can even achieve independent research and development of core components.
In order to standardize and promote the healthy and orderly development of the service robot industry, leading manufacturers are also actively participating in the formulation of industry standards. By building an internal efficient research and development system and consolidating the advantages of suppliers and industrial chains, they have gradually established technical barriers and commercialization barriers. Consolidate market competitive advantage.
People in the catering industry said that the three years of the epidemic have been the most difficult three years for catering companies. Now that the spring of the catering industry has come, what catering people should do is to adhere to long-termism. Goals and plans for 2023. There is no doubt that food delivery robots are currently the hottest commercial service robot products. With the popularization of intelligence and the improvement of the functions of food delivery robots, it is believed that based on its advantages such as intelligent navigation, mobility, optimized manpower, and lower cost than humans, In the future, food delivery robots will become a sharp tool for the intelligent transformation of the global catering industry.
