A Multi-Robot System Application: Starbots Coffee

Hi ROS Community,

Our primary aim at The Construct is to make robotics more accessible to everyone. So today, we are proud to announce our latest achievement - Starbots Coffee - an online remote cafeteria built by The Construct using ROS2 and Open-RMF.

Anyone in the world can connect to it and have a fleet of robots manage and deliver coffee orders. We created this demo to show what Open-RMF is capable of in a real-world scenario.

This application integrates everything from Open-RMF (including opening/closing doors, ingestors/injectors, two different types of robots, integration with a web page, and more).

Starbots Coffee is open to everyone from Mon to Fri, 9:30 to 14:00 CET. Try it now!

  1. Visit the page starbots.coffee
  2. Scroll down and select a person from our team to send a coffee.
  3. Use a mobile phone to scan that person’s QR code and then select the beverage you want to send that person.
  4. A new window will show the live camera in our cafeteria and how the robots coordinate to prepare and send the coffee (robotic arm and mobile base) to a given location.
  5. You can also see the RVIZ window showing the RMF actions taken by the robots.
