An Estonian-based company has rolled out a fleet of food delivery robots on U-S college campuses.  NTD's Andrew Thomas has more on the machines that could help meet the perpetual demand of hungry students.

Students head to classes at the University of Illinois at Chicago. 

Among them, Fully-automated robots roll around carrying food.

“Anybody can download the app just like DoorDash or GrubHub, and they can place a pin on campus and order from whatever restaurant is available. That restaurant will then fulfill the order, load the robot and the robot will be off to you fully autonomously.”

Comery says Starship Technologies has these robots on roughly 30 U.S. college campuses.

Other locations include the U.K., Germany, Denmark, Finland, and Estonia.

“Around the world, we have almost 2000 robots now. You know, we've just completed our 4 millionth delivery worldwide just a few weeks back.”

Not only are the robots convenient, they reduce the number of cars on campus.

“You know, every every ten deliveries that a robot does takes out a car. You know, it's throughout the course of a day, the average robot would deliver ten deliveries. And that's, you know, taking carbon emissions out of our campuses, making them cleaner and greener.”

But Starship's robots do have their skeptics on UIC's campus.

“I don't think they're the most reliable and I'm sure you're being taxed on extra for using it as a service. So most kids are probably going to avoid that and just go to Starbucks or something easier.”

Other students say they’re fans of the food delivery bots.

“Sometimes I'm lazy so I don't want to go and get my own food. If someone can bring it to me, that’d be nice. I don't like, like sometimes, you don't have to deal with people, like the Uber eats driver. It's nice, just a robot.”

These robots could be the future of coffee on demand.

Or late night pizza delivery.
