Inno-Snippet No. 77


World's first robot delivery service launched in the UK


A company named Starship Technologies, with its headquarters in San Francisco, California launched a ground based robot package service in the UK. Its main aim is to tackle the issue of late and missed deliveries which is becoming more and more common in the UK. Each robot is equipped with 10 cameras which allow the robots to 'view' three-dimensional footage. Mapping technology, ultrasound sensors, radar, and GPS combined with machine learning allow the robots to navigate on city streets and recognize both objects and potential hazards, such as cars or pedestrians. Customers can track the robot and unlock it using a personal code they receive through an app.
