Brace yourself people– the food delivery robots are coming! And they’ll be carting piping hot pizzas to Domino’s customers. ?
Domino’s has just inked a partnership with Starship Technologies to begin using its “personal delivery devices” this summer in Hamburg, Germany. If all goes well there, Domino’s and Starship intend to bring robot pizza delivery to the Netherlands as well. After that? You guess it – U.S.A.!
Starship’s devices have the look of a self-driving food cart, rather than some science fiction humanoid. They travel on six wheels at a clip of 4 miles per hour, and can carry just over 40 lbs. of cargo. In Hamburg, the robots will deliver pizzas within a one-mile radius.
Starship plans to have 100 robots per human operator and to rent them out to other businesses on demand. To start, each delivery might cost a few dollars, Heinla said, but eventually the cost could be pennies per delivery.
