Yelp Eat24 is the first partner to test out Marble's food delivery robot in San Francisco, offering people in the area an entirely new way to get their hands on takeout meals in the city. When ordering through the Yelp Eat 24 app, users may now choose to have their meal delivered by a robot. If they say opt-in for robot delivery, they will receive a PIN code, which may be used to unlock the rover once it arrives to receive their order.
Just Eat, DoorDash and Domino's are just a few of the forward-thinking companies that are now deploying delivery rovers to replace urban couriers.
While robotics specialist Marble is just beginning to explore the real-world applications for its food delivery robot, it also sees potential to change the way consumers goods may be purchased and securely delivered.
