Starship Technologies Completing Demands of Autonomous Robots
Starship Technologies, a San Francisco-based small self-driving robotic vehicle manufacturing giant is completing the orders of its autonomous robots as demand for contactless delivery rises due to COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, the company has launched a robot food delivery service in Tempe, Arizona following its $40 million funding round which was announced in August 2019.
Starship Technologies has been ramping up its commercial services since the past year. The platform is working with a plan to expand to 100 universities by late summer 2021. Along with Tempe, the company has added several new locations too. It has expanded its service area in Milton Keynes, UK, where it has been operating since 2018, including a grocery delivery service in Washington, D.C in late March and expanded to Irvine, California. The platform is planning to add more cities into its list in the coming weeks.
Ryan Tuohy, the head of Business Development at Starship Technologies state, “The demand for contactless delivery has expanded exponentially in recent weeks. We’re looking forward to serving the Tempe community as more people are looking for ways to support local businesses while spending more time at home. Our robots are doing autonomous deliveries in five countries and we’re grateful that our robots can make life a little bit easier for everyone.”
In an announcement, Starship Technologies has revealed that, at the initial stage in Tempe, the delivery service will employ more than 30 autonomous, on-demand robots between 10:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. daily. The company has also mentioned that the initial services will be provided in a geofenced area that includes several restaurants and a residential area. The robotic vehicles manufacturer also noted that local residents can use the app to order their meal from three restaurants including Tempe City Tacos, Venezia’s Pizza of “Breaking Bad” fame, and Fate Brewing Company.
