An autonomous robot developed by Starship Technologies (London, UK) has successfully delivered takeout, the first time such a task has been completed by a robot. In November 2016, a Starship Delivery Robot made its first delivery in Redwood City, CA,USA. The local bakery, Cafe La Tartine used a Starship Robot to deliver 15 chocolate cookies to a house in the local neighbourhood. This week,UK food delivery service Just Eat sent the robot to Turkish restaurant Taksim Meze in London to pick up an order of falafel and lamb cutlets. The food then made its way back to the customer in the robot's locked compartment.
