A robot was trained to “taste” food at different stages of the chewing process. Why? To check if it is salty enough, in a way similar to humans. The goal is to make robots “better cooks.”

Researchers at the University of Cambridge said it can help in automated food preparation. The robot previously learned how to make omelets. According to the research, the robot tasted nine variations of scrambled eggs and tomatoes.

The team put the egg mixture in a blender to imitate the change in texture caused by chewing and had the robot test the dish.

To imitate tasting in their robot chef, researchers attached an instrument that acts like a saltiness sensor to a robot arm. Using this instrument, the robot “tasted” the dishes, giving a response in just a few seconds.

It then produced taste maps for the dishes.
The researchers found that the taste-as-you-go approach improved the robot’s ability to quickly and accurately assess the saltiness of the dish.
