Autonomous Robots Will Be Delivering Food In Ann Arbor
Imagine getting your food, not by a person, but by a robot. If you live in Ann Arbor, you may actually witness an autonomous robot deliver your food.
According to WILX, these self driving cars will be tested out in January with four different restaurants.
Refraction Al, based out of Ann Arbor, makes REV, an autonomous robot that is about five feet tall. Almost human like, right? These autonomous robots have wheels, fuselage and can hold delivery bags.
The REVs will be used starting on January 3rd to take meals from four different restaurants to a test group of 300 people.
According to WILX, Refraction Al is hoping that it will be electric. The 100-pound REV could cut food delivery cost in half. They are hoping to make it cheaper than even Grubhub.
