Posted by at 9:37 am on March 29, 2017

Starship Technologies’ autonomous robots started carrying out deliveries for DoorDash and Postmates in the US in January but now they are heading to the EU. ¬†Starship’s latest partnership is about delivering pizza.

Domino’s and Starship are collaborating to allow Starship’s six-wheeled robots to start delivering pizza across German and Dutch cities. The delivery network will be limited to begin with, focusing on selected stores and only carrying out deliveries within a one mile radius.

Don Meij, Domino’s Group CEO and Managing Director, views the partnership as, “an important next step in bringing robot pizza deliveries to reality.

Starship’s robots are designed to carry out deliveries up to two miles away with a travel time of up to 30 minutes.

Domino’s has even dedicated division called DRU (Domino’s Robotic Unit). DRU will oversee the Starship partnership.
