Delivery robot manufacturer and service provider Starship Technologies recently expanded its robot-based food delivery services to the campuses of the University of California, Los Angeles and Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts.

Deals with college campuses allow the company to implement delivery services on behalf of on-campus dining options, with Starship using the campuses as testbeds while the schools promote their cutting-edge technology uptake.

Starship’s iOS and Android apps lets users choose food or beverage items, then identify where they want the delivery sent; they can watch the robot's position on an interactive map.

Upon the robot's arrival, customers use the app to unlock a secure compartment in the robot to get their order.
