The first self-driving bar unit in the world

The international studio of design and innovation CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati presents Guido, an urban self-driving cafe. The concept focuses on the first robotized bar unit using driverless technologies.

Developed for Makr Shakr, the world’s leading producer of robotic bartenders, Guido provides unusual on-demand services to enjoy leisure time in the city. It is composed of two units equipped with two mechanical arms capable of preparing and serving beverages in a few seconds, mounted on the platform of a self-driving vehicle.

Guido can move autonomously on wheels; an app can be used to make reservations, after which the vehicle arrives. The system can check the age of users and accepts payment by mobile phone.
