For once, American students will be happy with the Russians, the Cold War be damned. In college campuses across the United States, robots of the driverless kind will be delivering food to the students.
The initiative is the result of a tieup between Russian tech giant Yandex and online food-ordering company Grubhub. The two entities agreed on a pact lasting several years.
Yandex began testing the delivery robots two years ago and already operates at some locations in central Moscow and in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
It did not reveal the fiscal conditions of the deal.
The service will start this autumn. Over 250 college campuses in America will be served.
The robots have an added advantage: they can easily enter areas in the campus where cars cannot.
The same technology that is used in Yandex’s self-driving cars applies to the robots too.
