New robots are hitting the streets of San Francisco to deliver food to your doorstep
Recode ------- If you live in San Francisco, your next take-out order may be delivered by a robot.Marble, a robot delivery startup, is now hitting the streets of San Francisco’s relatively flat Mission and Potrero Hill districts in a new partnership with Yelp’s Eat24 to deliver food in the evenings. At this point, the robots will always be accompanied by a person walking alongside them in case something goes awry, though the rovers will be driving autonomously. Marble’s robots don’t look anything like other delivery rovers out there. For one, they take up about as much space as a mobility scooter, which is a pretty big footprint on a crowded city sidewalk. They’re also taller than waist height — though the height can change depending on the size of the cargo bay attached to its base. Still, this is not a petite vehicle.
