Interpl.ai provides Modular Food Delivery Platforms

There is an increasing demand for door-step food delivery as most people now are looking to dine in the safety and comfort of their homes. Restaurants and other food establishments rely on third-party delivery services or their own delivery crew for the last-mile delivery of food. However, this leads to higher delivery costs that affect the final price of the products, prompting customers to only order from nearby restaurants. So startups are developing robotic delivery systems that reduce the delivery cost.

Interpl.ai is a US-based startup that develops multi-robotic solutions for last-mile delivery. The startup uses its modular and reconfigurable technology that allows customization of the cargo container as per the client’s requirement. The technology also enables the docking of multiple containers, thus increasing the cargo capacity and efficiently utilizing the robot chassis. Moreover, Interpl.ai provides logistics software that controls the robots, optimizes the route, and shares tasks among the robots in the system. All these features maximize the efficiency of food delivery.

Tortoise builds Robots for Grocery Delivery

Unlike food packages, groceries are purchased in bulk and require larger capacity containers. So startups and scaleups are developing delivery cart solutions that deliver groceries directly to customers’ homes. These solutions eliminate human handoffs and make the entire delivery process contactless.

Tortoise is a US-based startup that develops electric delivery carts to deliver groceries, parcels, and goods. The startup uses trained teleoperators to remotely control the delivery carts. Its carts are fully electric, capable of delivering groceries and other goods going at a maximum speed of 7 miles per hour. The pickup truck design holds up to 150 pounds of goods in 4 lockable containers that support ambient, chilled, and frozen items. When the cart arrives at the customer’s address, the cart is unlocked by the remote operator ensuring the safe delivery of goods.

Rocos develops Autonomous Robotic Platforms for Food Delivery

Recent developments in computer vision and artificial intelligence enhance the capabilities of autonomous robots. These robots automate repetitive tasks and allow humans to concentrate on intelligent tasks instead. For instance, food delivery is one such area in which autonomous robots are able to take up the task of collecting food and delivering it to a specified location both inside and outside. To this end, startups and scaleups are developing robotic platforms that are able to automate point-to-point delivery and transportation.

Rocos is a New Zealand-based startup that provides a robotic platform to coordinate the activities of autonomous robot fleets. The platform supports robots both in indoor and outdoor environments. Rocos’ AI and software provide increased traceability and reliability and also increase visibility into where the delivery item is located at any given time. The solution enables the 24×7 operation of robots with minimal human interaction. Additionally, the platform monitors and analyzes telemetry in real-time via ultra-low latency dashboards, thereby keeping track of the robot’s health.

Ottonomy works on Robots-as-a-Service for Food Delivery

The seamless transition of food delivery from an agent-based to a robot-based system requires proper attention and management. This is why robotic startups and scaleups are developing subscription-based robotic products and services for automated delivery. The solution reduces the cost of implementing an autonomous delivery system from scratch. Additionally, it removes any chances of friction with the end-user in the early stages of implementation.

Ottonomy is a US-based startup that provides a Robot-as-a-Service platform, enabling organizations to establish a fleet of delivery bots. The startup’s unique mapping and perception elements enable navigation in ever-changing surroundings. Ottonomy allows for customization of the delivery cart and management system as per the needs of the customer. The solution provides contactless deliveries and ensures the safety of packages and their access to designated end users only. The system also houses additional features like the inbuilt disinfection of packages and temperature control that further enhance customer experience.

Airmatrix uses Drones for Food Delivery

The speed and agility of drones make them much more effective for point-to-point delivery compared to ground vehicles. But as in the case of roads, the adoption of a drone delivery system without a set of clear traffic rules leads to confusion, accidents, and inefficiencies. This is why startups and scaleups are developing a grid system that ensures drone traffic stays organized, safe, and under control. This grid matrix enables drones to fly autonomously to deliver food, parcels, medicines, and other goods.

Airmatrix is a Spanish startup that designs and develops traffic management systems for drones. The startup’s solution designs air space routes for autonomous aircraft. These millimeter-precise skyways ensure that drone traffic stays safe, efficient, and scalable. The solution lets restaurants and other food establishments set up autonomous delivery systems without the fear of accidents and dissatisfied end users. This allows multiple enterprises to conduct deliveries using a single air space. Airmatrix also provides a simple interface to plan, track, and coordinate multiple drones.
