O'BARRO - More than a student project

The Concept

Started in summer 2019, O‘Barro is a fast growing innovative automation concept made by Offenburg University: A fully automatic bar robot that serves various drinks in an exceptional bar ambience. The cutting-edge prototype meets future crucial customer requirements and includes state of the art technology. Together with our industry partners, we have developed a unique prototype that convinces with its flexibility and modularity as well as mobility. The production, dispensing and storage of a wide variety of beverages is carried out with the highest precision, always taking into account hygienic requirements and the continuous measurement of numerous values, so that the highest process reliability is guaranteed and documented.

  • The Bar

    O‘Barro‘s design is a mix of an Irish pub and a Black Forest tavern, including natural and sustainable materials. The prototype creates various alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, of course with an extraordinary quality and as if made by human hands. Currently the prototype creates cocktails and beer, but there are hardly any limits to expansion.

  • The Skills

    State of the art technology, innovative solutions, creative ideas: O‘Barro combines excellent products from all over the world. We have chosen high quality products that enable us to create a fully flexible and mobile bar solution. In addition, the cost-effectiveness of the system is a key factor that is taken into account.

A University Initiative

O‘Barro is a project from Offenburg University in the Black Forest in Germany. O‘Barro is driven by students, supported by staff and professors. Our aim is to create a sustainable project to show the ability and skills of Offenburg University students.
