Starship robots are revolutionary devices that can carry parcels or grocery bags (10 kilograms) within a 3 mile (5km) radius. Starship’s technology and approach allows us to lower the cost of local delivery by a factor of 5-10x.
It is like a smart robotic, rolling cooler.
This would be delivery in 30 minutes or less. The robots are equipped with cameras and sensors. The robot uses “integrated navigation and obstacle avoidance software,” said the company, and can travel at the speed of four miles per hour. This is a 99 percent self-driving robot which in difficult situations is handled by a remote distant operator, speaking to pedestrians via speakers. The cargo bay is locked to prevent theft. By means of an app, a customer can follow the robot’s progress and be given an alert when the delivery arrives. Only the app holder is able to unlock the cargo.
