(GovTech) Starship Technologies, and its various industry partners in London; Düsseldorf, Germany; and Bern, Switzerland have signed an agreement to provide autonomous deliveries of food and parcels. Starship estimates that deliveries could take up to five to 30 minutes from a local hub or retail outlet — 10 to 15 times less than the cost of current last-mile delivery alternatives.
The London-based robotics company has created a zero-emission delivery drone that can travel within a two- to three-mile radius, detect and steer clear of obstacles, and travel at 4 mph. GPS tracking is available at all times for customers, as is assistance from human operators at a control center. The contents are remotely unlocked by the recipient once the package has been delivered.
