Starship Technologies is revolutionizing deliveries with autonomous robots. The robots are designed to deliver food,  groceries, and packages across college campuses and neighborhoods in minutes. Our delivery robots have completed over 2M autonomous deliveries to date, traveled 3M kilometers, crossed over 17 million roads, and met millions of people in cities around the world. Our contribution to society includes reducing congestion and pollution, zero emissions deliveries, increasing the quality of life for residents, empowering seniors and disabled people, and enabling affordable delivery for local businesses. Every day our delivery robots are completing thousands of autonomous deliveries and hitting records on an almost weekly basis.
