PuduTech, the creator of the PuduBot, unveiled its newest delivery robot at CES 2020 in the form of BellaBot. Like its predecessor, BellaBot is a robot waiter but sets itself with an expressive feline digital face and a cat-like personality to match. The bot is set up with four shelves so that meal trays can be autonomously delivered to diners in a restaurant.
Thanks to the robot's "advanced tactile feedback system," customers are able to thank BellaBot for delivering a meal by giving it scratches on the head and ears. If the interaction goes well, BellaBot is programmed to offer a reply expressing its satisfaction—and if the scratching goes on for too long, the bot's expression changes and says that it needs to get back to work.
