Delivery robots are coming to a college dorm near you

If you look up while walking on a college campus, you’ll most likely see a flurry of activity – students riding to class on bikes, athletes zipping around on scooters, Subway sandwiches and Frappuccinos cruising around on miniature delivery robots — hold on, what?

You read that correctly. There’s a new vehicle adding to the traffic of campus corridors: fun-sized autonomous food delivery robots, courtesy of Starship Technologies. The company is adding the University of Illinois Chicago, the University of Kentucky, the University of Nevada, Reno and the Daytona Beach campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to its list of around 20 participating schools.
