Servo and Uber to Deploy 2,000 delivery robots in the U.S.

There are many benefits of food delivery services. The most important benefit of food delivery is providing food whenever or wherever you want. People are sometimes very busy these days, but food delivery services help them grab a bite into their busy schedule. However, human food delivery has many disadvantages, such as high delivery charges, late delivery, and increased traffic congestion.

Serve Robotics Inc. is the leading autonomous sidewalk delivery robots company backed by Uber, Nvidia, and other world-class investors. Now, Serve Robotics is expanding its partnership with the world’s largest food delivery and ridesharing platform, Uber Technologies. Through this deal with Uber Eats, up to 2,000 sidewalk delivery robots from Serve Robotics are set to be deployed across multiple unspecified markets in the United States.

As reported by the servo company, more than 200 restaurants in Los Angeles are now participating in the robotic delivery pilot project. This growing awareness and interest in robotic delivery is reflected in the thousands of positive ratings received for deliveries completed in a large market in North America.

Serve bots are capable of Level 4 autonomy designation by the Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE), which means the vehicle can handle all aspects of driving in certain conditions without human intervention. The robots can also reroute if they face obstacles or obstructions.

Supervisors also sometimes help the robot to take some actions, such as street crossings, but Serve’s robots can predict driver inattention and avoid collisions on their own. This means that Servo Robotics’ latest generation robots can operate routinely without human intervention and rely on their onboard capabilities to ensure safe operation.

The use of delivery robots has the potential to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution, improve the efficiency of last-mile delivery, and offer new and innovative delivery experiences to consumers and merchants.

This partnership is a major step towards mass commercialization of robotics for autonomous delivery, and it is a testament to the success of our partnership. We are excited to continue our work with Uber to bring this innovative technology to more cities across the country,” said Dr. Ali Kashani, co-founder and CEO of Serve Robotics.

This deal with Uber Eats and Serve Robotics is paving the way for the future of sustainable, self-driving delivery. Robotic delivery experience will delight customers, improve reliability for merchants, and drives zero vehicle emissions. After expanding this technology in the future, this delivery robot will benefit various businesses and other purposes.
