Marble delivery robots are being tested by Yelp Eat24 in San Francisco’s Mission and Potrero Hill areas. This is the first partnership for Marble, a San Francisco-based startup, which also announced a $4 million in seed funding led by Eclipse and including Maven Ventures, Amplify Partners and Lemnos Labs.

Marble’s delivery robots, which are much bigger and not as sleek as its competitors, are powered by NVIDIA Jetson TX1 AI supercomputers to navigate to customers. The delivery robots use AI, Lidar and computer vision to detect people, cars, or other objects along their route.

The delivery robots map the city’s sidewalks to determine the best travel routes and improve food delivery times. Marble plans to map the majority of San Francisco’s sidewalks in the coming year.

Typical deliveries will be about one mile.
