Order your customized cup of coffee by smartphone and have it served by a robot soon after: this is now possible thanks to the Internet of Things. Two KR AGILUS robots operate one coffee machine each, receiving the required data from the cloud. In line with the Industrie 4.0 philosophy, the process is not controlled by a central entity. The cups, which are provided with a QR code, move autonomously through the decentralized production system. Status messages are sent to the smartphone during the production process.
