OrionStar Robotic Coffee Master Robot
Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2021 visitors probably came across OrionStar’s 5G Robotic Coffee Master as it served up piping hot beverages at Qualcomm Technologies’ booth. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System, this master barista can make up to 1,000 cups of coffee every day, or three times faster than a human can. To reach this level of expertise, it underwent 3,000 hours of AI learning, 30,000 hours of robotic arm testing and machine vision training.

OrionStar plans to make full utilization of 5G as China quickly moves to deploy its network, with 718,000 5G base stations established thus far, accounting for 70% of the global share. Cloud robotics is one of the sectors that will benefit from the global 5G rollout. Unfortunately (or fortunately), there’s no word yet on when the Robotic Coffee Master will make its way stateside.
