Food delivery by robots is no longer a fictional science. Hundreds of tiny robots are appearing on college campuses and elsewhere in many countries, including the US and UK. These robots that can reach up to your knees can deliver up to four pizzas at a time. Before the arrival of the coronavirus epidemic, a limited number of tests were going on them, but now the situation has changed. Robot makers say that robots are being used more rapidly due to the labor shortage caused by the pandemic and the increase in people's inclination towards contactless delivery. Starship Technologies recently completed 2 million deliveries. Surge in demand The company's CEO, Alastair Westgarth, says, "The demand for robots has blown off the roof.

The company is currently delivering food inside 20 liver complexes in the US. Soon 25 more colleges will be added to this list. Not only this, the company's robots are also working on the sidewalks in Milton Keynes in England, Modesto in California, and Tallinn in the company's home city of Estonia. Robots have different designs. Like some have four wheels and some have six. But in general, they all use cameras, sensors, GPS, and sometimes even laser scanners to walk on the pavement. They travel at a speed of five kilometers per hour and cross the road on their own. Limits of use Remotely steerers monitor multiple robots at the same time, but they say they rarely need to break or cross an obstacle along the way. When the robot reaches its destination,
