FOOD KIOSKS WITH A ROBOTIC CHEF
YPC Technologies is a Montreal based startup in food robotics with the vision to make good food more accessible. We are doing this by bringing small scale robotic automation to the cooking processes. Our food kiosks can prepare gourmet food at low cost with great consistency.
Our storage units host hundreds of ingredients, enabling our system to produce a large variety of different meals without the need to add ingredients.
Our system tracks the inventory live and can order missing ingredients based on the predicted demand for recipes.
The robotic arm at the center of our system connects food storage to cooking devices. It can access all ingredients and dispense the required quantities in the cooking area.
We use a combination of traditional sensor technology together with computer vision and reinforcement learning to ensure precision and consistency at maximum speed.
Cooking is extremely complex. We keep things simple. Instead of teaching a robot how to cook, we leverage already existing smart cooking technologies used in Michelin starred restaurants worldwide.
YPC can prepare a large variety of dishes, such as the ones shown in our sample menu. This is just a small choice of what we can do. YPC can cook thousands of restaurant quality meals at rates of more than 100 meals per hour. The high flexibility of our technology allows our customers to cook the recipes of their existing menu, rather than choosing from a given set of feasible items.
