Yumbo Feeds MK Restaurant Patrons
Bangkok University, Thailand is developing robotic waiters for MK Restaurant. The concept robot Yumbo carries food on trays and maneuvers around by following lines on the floor. He also avoids collisions with IR range detection.

Watching the video, it looks like the project has a ways to go.
