Starship Technologies created by two Skype co-founders, unveiled their self-driving delivery robot, featuring a locked cargo bay, which only the customer could open, through the app.
The company will introduce fleets of small, safe, practical, free from CO2 emissions, and earthbound delivery robots, which will create unprecedented convenience and cost savings for individuals.
AhtiHeinla, a Skype co-founder and CEO at Starship Technologies, said:
“Our vision revolves around three zeroes – zero cost, zero waiting time and zero environmental impact. We want to do to local deliveries what Skype did to telecommunications.
The robots will cross the streets much like the humans do: stop, look both ways, and wait until it is safe to cross. The robot can recognize approaching cars with its sensor suite from 100-200 metres and will cross the streets only in locations with great visibility.”
