Online food ordering and delivery platform company Uber Eats has launched a robot food delivery service in Miami via a partnership with robotics firm Cartken.
Cartken's website says its six-wheeled robots feature sensors and cameras to evade collisions and select routes with the fewest hazards.
Uber Eats will notify customers when their food is en route, then instruct them to meet the remotely supervised robot on the sidewalk.
They can unlock the vehicle with their phone and retrieve their order from a secure compartment.
The food delivery option initially will be available in Miami-Dade County's Dadeland region, with further expansion in the county and additional cities planned for next year.
