Starship Technologies: The Robot Delivery System

You may have heard about driverless cars and robots delivering food to your doorstep recently, well that is exactly what Starship Technologies do. Founded in 2014 by the co-founders of Skype, Janus Friis and Ahti Heinla, Starship Technologies develop self-driving robotic delivery vehicles.

These vehicles are quite small and compact as they travel on six wheels at four miles per hour and they deliver within a one mile radius. Both Janus Friis and Ahti Heinla have won awards for Starship Technologies including Start-up of the Year from Computer Bild - a German technology magazine. 

This driverless scheme may become more of a regular feature in the near future as the start-up has tested their system in 100 cities and has even partnered up with pizza franchise, Domino's and Just Eat for deliveries. With robotics and driverless vehicles a current topic within the tech world this is surely a start-up and system that if implemented with various other brands will revolutionise the delivery service industry.
