Robots Might Be The Next Food Delivery Method In London
Starship Technologies is partnering up with London food delivery startups to begin delivering meals with self-driving robots
The London-based robot developing company and Skype co-founder, Starship Technologies, is set to start delivering food orders to London residents with self-driving robots. The initiative was born through partnerships with food delivery startups, Just Eat and Pronto.
The robots, which travel at a speed of 4 mph, have been tested by Starship for the past 12 months, and are now ready for the next phase of their development: real-life application through their partnerships with food delivery companies. The idea is that robots will be in charge of delivering meals to costumers within a 2-3 mile radius. The tests will also be running in Germany and their R&D base in Tallinn, Estonia.
