A fleet of cooler-shaped autonomous robots has started delivering snacks and meals at the University of Texas at Dallas. The robots, developed by Starship Technologies, also deliver food at the University of Houston, and at George Mason University in Virginia.
Students, faculty, and staff can order through a smartphone app from 10 different campus restaurants. The robots, stationed around each campus, go to a restaurant, pick up the order, and guide themselves to the customer's nearest outdoor location.
Each robot is equipped with an orange flag that lights up to alert cars and pedestrians.
