Currently, curbside collection, campus meal delivery, and food and grocery delivery are all done by artificial intelligence-powered sidewalk delivery robots across the nation. If you live in Miami and have ordered food from UberEats, it may be robotically delivered to your door. Robotics company Cartken and Uber announced a collaboration to use robots to deliver food in Miami, Florida.
The two businesses have already started working with a few select retailers in the county’s Dadeland region. At the moment, curbside pickup, campus meal delivery, and food and grocery delivery are all done across the nation using Cartken’s artificial intelligence-powered sidewalk delivery robots.
When the clients’ meals are ready, they will receive a notification. According to CNN, they will be told to meet the robot on the sidewalk.
Customers can pick up their orders from a safe compartment after using their mobile phones to unlock the car. The robots include a variety of sensors and cameras that aid in collision avoidance and route selection for the fewest obstacles. The six-wheeled vehicles can be used both inside and outside.
Recently, Uber teamed with Motional, a company that develops driverless technology, to employ its electric IONIQ 5-based robotaxis. The ten-year agreement called for Uber to implement autonomous vehicles powered by Motional’s technology and utilise them to transport clients.
When they order a ride on the Uber app, consumers from Las Vegas will be matched with the autonomous vehicle. The software will pair the user with the appropriate car if it is available. Before the journey is confirmed, the customer has the option to accept the ride.
Two years ago, Uber spun off its autonomous vehicle division. It is advancing while competitors like Argo AI, which is supported by Ford and Volkswagen AG, have stopped operations.
