Autonomous drone developer Starship Technologies has completed the installation of delivery robots at a work campus for US financial software company Intuit in California.
The robots offer on-demand delivery via the Starship app, providing employees with the flexibility and convenience of having food delivered when and where they want. On average, a Starship robot takes 17 minutes to deliver food, coffee or snacks on the campus, giving people more time to be productive or enjoy their break. Starship’s robots can deliver all manner of items from food and office stationery to auto-parts and parcels.
The Mountain View campus launch represents a major milestone in the growth of Starship Technologies, and expands on commercial delivery pilot programs in the USA, UK, Germany, Switzerland and Estonia.
Robots developed by Starship Technologies have now covered over 100,000 miles around the world in 20 countries and over 100 cities.
“After a successful start to the year and great reception to our robots, we are planning to dramatically expand our services and distribute thousands of robots across campuses around the world by 2019,” said Ahti Heinla, CEO, Starship Technologies.
“The roll-out of Starship’s campus offering represents a major milestone in the development of delivery robots. By providing campuses with our platform, we are leading the deployment of autonomous delivery at scale worldwide.”
