Food Delivery Robots Rolling Into Sacramento | Amanda & Darik

Your lunch could soon be delivered to you by a Robot?!

Yes this is a real story.  KCRA reports, The city of Sacramento announced Tuesday it plans to bring food delivery robots to town as part of a pilot program with company Kiwi Campus, Inc.

The service works much like other food delivery companies, such as DoorDash, Grubhub and Postmates. But, instead of a person delivering the food, a robot drops it off instead.

The pilot program will initially launch in Midtown.  The robots will drive on sidewalks, using GPS, cameras, and pre-programmed routes to get around town.  They can even recognize the walk signal and will only cross at crosswalks! 

The city plans to roll out 30 robots in September or October.  The hope is that they will help the environment and  reduce traffic.   We hope that people don’t mess with them and steal the food!
