Two robot waiters serve diners at the White Fox restaurant in Mosul, Iraq.

The robots were imported from an unnamed source and programmed by researchers from the University of Mosul's department of mechatronics, who also connected the robots to a network and server in the restaurant.

The robots have not entirely displaced the human staff; a team of four waiters assists the robots by moving food items from their trays to customers’ tables.
