As the Restaurant Robotics Space Heats Up, Pudu Technology Secures $15 Million for Its Server and Dish Return Robots |

The funding comes at a time when restaurants and other eating establishments are seeking new, innovative ways to reduce human contact and adhere to social distancing regulations in the face of a global pandemic that continues unabated in many parts of the world, including the United States.
By RTN Staff – 7.10.2020

Pudu Technology, which makes autonomous restaurant server robots, has secured a $15 million funding round. The sole investor is Meituan, a Chinese group-buying website for food delivery services, consumer products and retail services that aspires to be the Amazon of services and generated nearly $14 billion in revenue last year. The funding comes at a time when restaurants and other eating establishments are seeking new, innovative ways to reduce human contact and adhere to social distancing regulations in the face of a global pandemic that continues unabated in many parts of the world, including the United States.

Much of that innovation is technology-enabled, with robotics getting an increasing amount of attention — and money. Autonomous robots like the ones being introduced by Shenzen, China-based Pudu and rival company Keenon Robotics, which makes a similar line of specialized restaurant robots and is also based in mainland China, may present one of the most effective avenues for reducing table service interaction.

The restaurant robotics space was rapidly heating up even before the global pandemic turned the hospitality industry upside down. For example, Korea-based Woowa Brothers, a fast-growing online food delivery service that was taken over in April by German company Delivery Hero for $4 billion, announced that it is now collaborating with LG on the development of robotic waiters. Other major players include Spain-based Macco Robotics, which recently unveiled its Dbot modular server robot, and California-based Bear Robotics, which in January raised $32 million for its Penny robot server.

According to a company spokesperson, Pudu will use the fresh investment mainly to develop new restaurant robot-related products, expand sales, and expand its overseas market presence.

Founded in 2016, Pudu has always focused exclusively on the design and production of robots. It now offers a full line of restaurant robots. These include PuduBot (a food delivery robot), BellaBot (which touts cat-like features and even makes an LED-face when “petted”), HoloBot (a building delivery robot), HolaBot (a dish-return robot), and GazeBot (a multi-scene delivery robot). The self-driving robots are equipped with a rack of trays to shuttle food and drinks to and from restaurant customers.

Its first mass-produced robot, PuduBot, has been adopted in restaurants, bars, and other dining settings in more than 20 countries, according to the company. Pudu claims to have more than 2,000 hospitality customers, including major hotel chains like Sheraton and JD.com.

With more than 100 employees, Pudu has established uncommon expertise in core robotic technologies that include low-speed automatic driving, robotics motor and motion control. The company has applied for hundreds of core patents for its proprietary technologies. Pudu and Meituan reportedly have future plans for cooperation and exchange in the field of robotics and catering service digitization, and the synergies are obvious.

Also obvious is the fact that restaurant robots that successfully automate the processes of preparing, serving and delivering food, and even washing dishes, are rapidly evolving and are here to stay, increasing restaurant efficiencies and reducing overhead costs. The global pandemic has further fueled the development and adoption of these robots, increasingly migrating this new breed of shiny object worker bee from restaurant novelty to what may well become restaurant necessity.

Colony KL at Pudu: Restaurant review

This review is brought to you in part by Colony KL.

Colony conquers: One of our most eagerly anticipated eateries will launch this month, marrying Burmese, Sri Lankan and Indian culinary traditions with Malaysian sensibilities to birth a menu that’s utterly unique in KL. Colony’s founders, who also run the innovative appam purveyor Hoppers, have become among our favourite restaurateurs, creating distinctive dishes that prove intimately personal and universally pleasurable. If you love venues with a vision of exploring fresh frontiers, put Colony on your calendar; follow them at facebook.com/colony.my and instagram.com/colony.my to see when they’ll open (Apr 12 at the earliest).

Bread and biryani

Start your journey with The Old Delhi – atta bread, baked at Colony with locally milled wheat flour, warm to the touch, served with sumptuously sinful bone marrow blended with butter, in a triumvirate of temptations completed by spiced apple chutney, every component complementing each other beautifully, transcending the tropes of predictable bread-and-butter combinations.

Get your claws out for Colony’s duck confit biryani, visually memorable and impeccably rendered, each individual grain of rice imbued with nuance, the spices mingling in perfect harmony with flavoursome duck stock, with plenty of fowl flesh to tear into for protein (including the crunchy claw), illustrating Colony’s ethos of concocting thoughtful recipes that stand out as its own. Named The Salem for the Tamil Nadu city, representing the biryani of Colony mastermind Sugania Naidu’s mom’s heritage.

Burmese fare

Colony could be your gateway into the moreish marvels of Myanmar’s cuisine; Sugania has visited Burma close to a dozen times, and she’s blessed with a hardworking Burmese cook in Colony’s kitchen. Preserved duck eggs, indulgently creamy and impressively clean-flavoured, sourced from a Burmese-run store in Pudu, are the secret weapon in The Yangon, a tomato salad tossed with house-made crispy chickpea tofu, irresistible even for those of us who may not typically love salads.

Don’t skip the Shan – flat noodles prepared in a mix of turmeric oil, sesame and garlic, crowned with thin and tasty chicken cracklings.

Malaysian inspirations

The Pontian and The Pudu: The first refers to corn cultivated in the southern Malaysian district, charred at Colony and slathered with an intriguing duet of peanut butter (!) and cinnamon, subtle but sure-handed, with onions, cucumbers and lime zest for uplift (fun fact: the corn and peanut butter combo is a nod to Sugania’s childhood remembrances of corn-in-a-cup and peanut butter waffles sold side-by-side in malls), while the latter pays credit to the roti canai and curries of the KL neighbourhood that Colony calls home, making its roti with kampung eggs that yield a vivid colour, paired with a rich, robustly nutty duck and potato curry.

Sri Lankan delights

There’s more to sample on the menu that blazes a path across multiple former British colonies: The Sri Pada is a lip-smacking Sri Lankan-inspired creation that relies on Malaysian-farmed lamb ribs, braised in New Zealand’s Karma Cola fairtrade organic craft soda, while The Kandy heaps a soft-shell crab and caramelised onions on shredded kothu roti.

The ideal way to experience Colony is with an open mind and adventurous palate, but for customers seeking safety in more familiar favourites, The Rompin (Pahang-caught calamari with duck egg aioli and calamansi) and The Madras (brined fried chicken marinated with tandoori spices, served with mint yoghurt) are certain crowd-pleasers. Note: Some of these recipes may be tweaked before Colony’s launch.

Sweet treats

Desserts? Definitely! The lemongrass-infused watalappam tart takes on a lusciously smooth coconut custard pudding that recalls Malaysian kaya, herb-spiked and yoghurt-splashed for sharp relief from the unabashed decadence of it all, while the chai-spiced sticky jaggery toffee pudding is one moist, gorgeous treat that simply screams, eat me – we’ll happily oblige; no regrets.


The fun and surprises extend to the cocktails: Colony’s current consultant mixologist Xander has created a range that remains perceptively true to Colony’s themes – The Englishman’s Coconut is a cheeky, whiskey-fuelled riff on the legend that some British colonists loathed the taste of coconut water and needed to temper it with booze.

There’s a playfulness in every potion, from the tuak-tinged Pineapple Cup to the Golden Coconut Water Gin & Tonic (with curry powder), Spiked Mango-Cinnamon Lassi to the Horlicks Ice Cream Float.

We’re looking forward to what Colony still has in store when it’s officially up and running (plans are now afoot for weekend brunches with a genuine twist). Many thanks to the Colony team for having us here.

Reasons the Largest Chinese Restaurant in the Netherlands Uses the Pudu Robotics Food Delivery Robot

Article content

AMSTERDAM — Pudu Robotics:

I. Top Chinese restaurant in the Netherlands

As the sayings go, you are never in the Netherlands if you haven’t visited Amsterdam and when you are in Amsterdam, the Sea Palace is a must choice. The Sea Palace, just like the windmills, the wooden shoes and the tulips, was once taken as the synonym of the Netherlands.

In October 1984, this 4-storey giant and extravagant painted pleasure boat in the strong Chinese imperial style showed up in the picturesque Amsterdam River, shocking the Chinese society in Europe and the Netherlands. As a top Chinese palace restaurant in Europe, the Sea Palace has a business area of 3,000 square meters and can accommodate 800 guests at most. Offering over 500 dishes of Cantonese cuisine, it is known as the leading Chinese restaurant in the Netherlands.

Seated in downtown Amsterdam with a distinctive architectural style, the Sea Palace is promoted as a tourist destination by the local government. The Palace is frequented by the princes, the cabinet ministers and the socialites of the Netherlands. Major diplomatic events between the Netherlands and China, and the grand receptions of the Chinese embassy to the Netherlands are all held here.

Article content

The Sea Palace is therefore known as the starting point and witness of the overseas Chinese history in West Europe. It has been graced and recognized by the Chinese leadership, such as Hu Jintao and Zhu Rongji, during their visit to the Netherlands.

II. PuduBot as an efficient assistant to Sea Palace

However, hit by the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, the Sea Palace that had thrived for nearly four decades suffered from the hardest winter. As required by the government, the once busy restaurant came to a sudden halt for two and a half months from mid-March to early June.

As the pandemic gets under control, the Sea Place re-opened in June but faced grave challenges and rigorous policy requirements. According to the government policies, there should be a 1.5m distance among customers and no banquet with over 100 participants shall be held. The restaurant must be ran on a cautious basis, trying to increase revenues while controlling the costs.

In face of the pandemic, revenue increase is much harder than cost reduction. As the largest Chinese restaurant in the Netherlands, the Sea Palace needs over 70 employees every year. Labor cost accounts for a large share in its total expenditure. In the Netherlands, the monthly salary of a waiter or waitress can be as high as 1,500 euros. In addition, the local law stipulates that unless the employee quits, the employer shall not dismiss the staff and pay their salaries during the closedown.

Under the pressure of the intermittent pandemic outbreak and the high labor cost, the owner of the restaurant decided to do something to change the situation. He learned that to reduce people-to-people contact, many restaurants had widened the distance between tables, delivered the dishes with the trolleys that allowed the customers to pick up their dishes, or even built the glass booths.

He then reached out towards his friends in China and got to know about the food delivery robots, which had been adopted by Haidilao and Xiabu Xiabu. Based on deliberate comparison and election, he chose the food delivery robot provided by Pudu Robotics.

Empowered by the independently developed technologies like the patent algorithm Pudu SLAM and the excellent hardware like the high-precision laser radar with a 120° S-PVA and the remote detection capacity, PuduBot demonstrated excellent performance in the trial run at the Sea Palace. With the superb detection ability. PuduBot is able to accurately detect the low obstacles nearby and the 3D obstacles in front of it, such as the passers-by, chairs, tables and hanging objects.

Article content

After one-week trial run, the Sea Palace decided to order several PuduBots, which will service the dining area on the second floor. The owner of the Sea Palace made the decision based on three considerations: the labor cost in the Netherlands is high; the investment on PuduBots can be recovered within one year; the owner is curious about the novel inventions.

PuduBot wins recognition not only from the restaurant owner, but from the customers, some of whom praised the PuduBot as the “perfect robot”!

As a landmark and tourist attraction in the capital city of the Netherlands, the Sea Palace is a milestone in the globalization journey of PuduBot. By now, the products launched by Pudu Robotics have made presence in over 2,000 restaurants of over 20 countries. This is the natural outcome as China’s competitive industries (represented by the service robots) go global and highlight the power of the Chinese technologies for the rest of the world.

Sarcos Robotics Plans SPAC Deal for $1.3 Billion Value

(Bloomberg) — Sarcos Robotics is planning to go public through a reverse merger with blank-check company Rotor Acquisition Corp.The Salt Lake City-based robot maker and the special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, will have a combined valuation of $1.3 billion including debt, the company said in a statement on Tuesday, confirming an earlier Bloomberg News report. The deal includes a potential earnout of an additional $281 million based on the performance of the stock after the merger.To help fund the transaction, the companies have raised about $220 million in a private investment in public equity, or PIPE, from investors including BlackRock Inc., Millennium Management, Palantir Technologies Inc., Caterpillar Venture Capital Inc. and Schlumberger, as well as from their own executives.Sarcos develops robotic systems for non-repetitive tasks that are designed to increase productivity among industrial and military workers. Its wearable devices help people move heavy objects with mechanical limbs and support, reducing workplace injuries and allowing employees less capable of strenuous labor to carry out tasks such as lifting airport baggage and manufacturing components without assistance.Led by Chief Executive Officer Ben Wolff, Sarcos will receive as much as $496 million in proceeds from the SPAC transaction, the company said in the statement. Wolff was a co-founder of Clearwire Corp., which was acquired by Sprint Corp. in 2013.The company will lease its exoskeleton, wearable device starting at $100,000 a year, similar to the total cost of hiring a worker for $25 an hour in the U. S., Wolff said in an interview.“Our value proposition is,” he said, “to deliver the productivity of three, four or five workers, depending on the use cases, industry and the job etc.”Initial versions of the devices cost “Hundreds of thousands of dollars” to make, Wolff said. He projects that cost will shrink to $65,000 once Sarcos achieves full-scale production in five years. Currently, the company’s only product in the market is an inspection and surveillance robot, which Wolff said will account for a small portion of its revenue once bigger and more expensive, products are commercialized.Rotor raised $276 million in its initial public offering in January. Its CEO is former Credit Suisse First Boston President Brian Finn, while its chairman is Stefan Selig, a former Bank of America Corp. executive and a U.S. Commerce Department official during the Obama administration.When the combined company’s stock price reaches $15 and $20, there are 1 million shares, representing $280 million, that are structured in an earnout, Selig said.“We did that so everybody is incentivized and aligned to do what we are hoping and expecting to happen here, which is to create significant long-term value,” he said.(Update with interviews with Sarcos and Rotor executives.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Pudu Tech Raised More than $15M as the Server Robot Space Heats Up

Pudu Technology, which makes autonomous server robots used in hospitality settings, announced yesterday a funding round of more than $15 million, according to VentureBeat.

The Shenzen, China-based Pudu makes a number of self-driving robots equipped with a rack of trays to shuttle food and drinks to and from customers inside a restaurant. Pudu introduced the BellaBot, which sports cat-like features and even makes a cute LED-face when you pet it, at this year’s CES.

Pudu’s funding comes at the right time, as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced restaurants and bars to reduce the amount of human contact during table service. Server robots like Pudu’s provide a way to reduce at least one point of human-to-human interaction while dining out.

But Pudu will also need the funding because the robot server space is getting increasingly crowded. In the VentureBeat story, Pudu claims has 2,000 customers including Sheraton and JD.com, across 20 countries. Rival Keenon Robotics, server bot company based in China, says that it has 6,000 robots in action and that it can produce 30,000 robots a year.

Over in Korea, Woowa Bros. partnered with consumer electronics giant LG to develop and expand its robot waiter program. In Spain, Macco Robotics launched its Dbot modular server robot. And here in the U.S., Bear Robotics, raised $32 million earlier this year for its Penny robot server.

All of this is to say that there are a lot of companies looking to bring robot servers to your restaurant. So much so, that as I wrote back in February, they could become a commodity:

It feels like restaurant server robots are on their way to becoming less of a novelty and will soon be a commodity. They all do the same thing — carry food. They are meant to do the grunt work so humans don’t have to. So the feature set will be the same: Take food to table > carry food without spilling > avoid humans and other obstacles along the way.

Sure, there are enhancements that can be made, or perhaps there’s a unique way to move food from the robot to the table. But there really isn’t much else for the robot to do. Server robots will become a commodity, and whichever company creates the cheapest robot that does a decent job will win.

Given the debate and debacle around re-opening restaurants here in the U.S., and restaurant workers test positive for COVID, we could see a rise in demand for restaurant robots. And it looks like there are plenty of companies ready if that demand comes.

Wong Sifu Restaurant Pudu Plaza Review

Wong Sifu Restaurant Pudu Plaza Review

Wong Sifu Restaurant is one of the hidden gems in Kuala Lumpur for years. They were formerly known as Hiong Kong Restaurant and rebranded to Wong Sifu due to the change of management and partnership. If you want to know more about the history of Wong Sifu (the name of the chef), you can read it at https://www.placesandfoods.com/2016/01/restoran-hiong-kong-pudu-plaza-wong-sifu.html as we blogged about it five years ago.

We started dining at Wong Sifu Restaurant almost ten years ago and we blogged about it five years later. The restaurant started off with a few tables before they found a business partner to renovate and expand to a bigger restaurant. One of the main reasons we didn’t visit Wong Sifu Restaurant for past couple of years as it was usually packed especially during Chinese New Year period.

They were doing fine until the first Movement Control Order (MCO) last year. According to Wong Sifu, the previous business partner wanted to downsize the restaurant due to MCO so they parted ways. Wong Sifu then approached by a new business partner and that is the reason why the restaurant is called Wong Sifu Restaurant. The old business partner still retained the old name Hiong Kong Restaurant and opened his own restaurant at another place in Pudu. This is the main reason why there is Wong Sifu Restaurant and Hiong Kong Restaurant in Pudu selling the same dishes. The original chef is still at Wong Sifu Restaurant at Lower Ground Pudu Plaza and they are expanding now with new VIP area.

We had dinner at Wong Sifu Restaurant Pudu Plaza a few days ago and it was packed. It is advisable to book a table as it is always busy and there are some dishes you need to book in advance such as the Lobster Platter and Eight Treasures Duck.

Mini Lobster Platter

Mini Lobster Platter

This is the mini size of Lobster Platter for six people. The usual size for the Lobster Platter is for ten people and it comes with deep fried prawns, yam basket with stir fried chicken cashew nuts, century eggs, sliced abalone mushroom, caramelized pork ribs, smoke duck breast, sliced cuttlefish, sauerkraut and lobster salad. The items in the lobster platter changed from time to time depending on the chef.

If you visit Wong Sifu restaurant for the first time, you can consider ordering this. We had it too many times so we don’t feel that special anymore but for first timers, this is a must order.

What we like about this lobster platter is it offers ten different items to taste and it looks very glorious and grand. The mini lobster platter is priced at RM 240 for six people. Is there lobster in this platter? The answer is yes, the lobster meat is mixed with the salad.

White Flower Chicken

This is a very interesting dish. This is chicken mixed with fish meat, a very traditional Chinese dish that you can’t find in many Chinese restaurants in Malaysia.

The top layer is roast chicken but the bottom layer is minced fish meat (similar to yong tau fu filling) so you get the two textures from fish and chicken. To cook this, you need technique and skills and the most important of all, this taste really good! Imagine the texture of the crispiness of the chicken skin as well minced fish meat, this is definitely something new to discover.

Fish Snout Soup / Fish Lip Soup

This fish snout soup or fish lip soup is a great alternative to shark fins soup. This comes with thick soup with eggs and taste like crab meat shark fins soup and instead of using the fins, they use the fish snout that offers soft and crunchy texture.

When this is served warm, this is very appetizing and memorable. Everyone loves this fish snout soup and one bowl is never enough.

Stir Fried Sliced Lotus Root with Macadamia Nuts

This is their signature ‘vegetable’ dish and it comes with many ingredients such roasted macadamia nuts, sweet peas, carrots, gingko, sliced lotus root, mushrooms and more.

The lotus root is crispy while you get the crunchy texture of the roasted macadamia nuts. The sweet peas and gingko offer soft texture with natural sweetness. This dish is a combination of sweet, soft, crispy and crunchy texture.

Caramelised Yam Stick

This is one of their signature desserts. This is the yam sticks deep fried and then covered with caramel with sesame seeds.

The yam stick is sweet and hard on the outer layer but soft on the inside. My friends who are not a big fan of yam actually loved this.

Overall, the food is still good as Chef Wong still runs the kitchen. There are many other signature dishes that we didn’t order such as Eight Treasure Duck, Coconut Double Boil Soup, Stir Fried Eel and more. The food is still consistently tasty and good and that is the reason the loyal customers are keep coming back at Wong Sifu Restaurant Pudu Plaza.

Closed on Mondays.

PuduSLAM, Intel® RealSense ™ by Pudu Robotics

The robots have a touch screen that allows the administrator to assign a tray (there can be up to 4 trays in operation) to a specific table. Once the table is selected, the robot works out the best route through the restaurant to the table, and then instructs visitors to take their plates and food from the trays.

After customers have collected their food from the robot, a simple press of a button on the touchscreen instructs the robot to continue its route, return home, or move to the next table.

By using a robot to assist with routine and repetitive tasks, staff can more effectively use their time to communicate with customers and serve their needs.

The robots navigate using the proprietary PuduSLAM algorithm, which combines data from multiple sensors: a lidar, a vision camera with a directly upward sensor, and two Intel ® RealSense ™ depth cameras located at the bottom of the robot.Depth cameras are critical for collision avoidance and adaptation to changing environments. Indoors, situations are possible that chairs and tables will move, bags, outerwear lie on the floor or on the backs of chairs or booths, not to mention people moving through the space. And even napkins and tablecloths can be problematic for 2D cameras. Depth cameras of PuduSLAM technology easily deal with all these factors and problems.

The combination of top and depth cameras, VSLAM calculations allows robots to navigate with lightning speed in changing conditions.

When meeting with a person, he will try to plot his route, carefully detouring if necessary, or the robot will politely ask you to move for further work. As soon as the path is clear, it will resume its journey to its destination.

90,000 Robots developer for HoReCa and retail Pudu Robotics from China raised $ 15 million

The Chinese company Pudu Robotics from Shenzhen develops service robots for cafes, restaurants, shopping malls, hospitals and other places where food or small goods delivery may be needed. The total volume of investments attracted by the company is CNY200 million – about $ 29 million.

Pudu Technology Inc., better known as Pudu Robotics, was founded in 2016. The company has over 100 employees and sells robots to over 20 countries worldwide.

PuduBot is the company’s mobile robot using lidar and SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) technology, as well as visual positioning.Precise control of the robot is also carried out by the six-core Mohism II processor.


HolaBot, which was released in 2019, is a waterproof robot for collecting dishes in restaurants, with multiple call modes and contactless controls. HolaBot has gesture recognition and voice control features.

BellaBot is a delivery robot that can be used as a waiter. The multi-shelf bot includes removable trays, replaceable batteries, and Intel RealSense D435 cameras for navigation and perception.The robot also has a tactile interface, cloud support and a programmable facial expression screen. BellaBot’s lifting capacity is up to 40 kg.

In addition, Pudu Robotics is developing mobile robots for small cargo delivery and disinfection during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Where the investment will be spent

The raised funding will be used to expand marketing and advertising campaigns for Pudu’s robot suppliers, as well as to develop the use of robots in other scenarios (not only in restaurants and shopping malls, but also in other locations), said Zhang Tao, CEO of Pudu Robotics.

The current Series B + round is led by Sequoia Capital China. The round was also attended by existing shareholders Meituan, Everwin Investment, QC Capital and Chengbohan Fund.

“Robots are a new form of work and they are constantly at the center of our attention,” said Colin Guo, Partner at Sequoia Capital China. “Pudu has extensive experience in the development and sales of service robots. The company began by providing delivery robots for HoReCa and is now expanding into more diverse work scenarios.Customer demand for service robots is growing steadily, and we believe that the use of bots will soon become a standard solution in many businesses and industries. ”
