Starship’s robots to deliver Just Eat orders in London – Engadget

In the coming weeks, robots developed by Starship Technologies will hit the streets of London to help deliver meals ordered from two of the UK’s biggest food delivery startups – Just Eat and Pronto.

The self-driving robots have already journeyed over 5,000 miles in tests across Greenwich, Milton Keynes and Glastonbury. The company says they have “met over 400,000 people without a single accident.”

The 4mph robots will operate as a “last-mile” solution, delivering food to customers within a 2-3 mile radius with help from its on-board GPS system and various sensors.

When a robot arrives at its destination, customers simply need to type in a code that has been sent to them via the mobile app to open the lid and collect their food.
