Serve unveils commercial deal with Uber to enable upscaling of robotic delivery
The autonomous sidewalk delivery company Serve Robotics has unveiled the scope of its partnership with Uber Technologies which will see Serve deploy its robots for Uber Eats in multiple markets across the United States.
In a statement issued on Tuesday (30 May), Serve said that the delivery partnership could see ‘up to two thousand Serve Robots fielded’.
The roll-out across the US follows a successful first year in Los Angeles.
Serve says that its robotic deliveries have grown over 30% month over month since deliveries began in 2022, with over 200 restaurants in Los Angeles now participating.
“We are thrilled to be growing our partnership with Uber,” said Dr. Ali Kashani, co-founder and CEO of Serve Robotics. “This partnership is a major step towards mass commercialisation of robotics for autonomous delivery, and it is a testament to the success of our partnership. We are excited to continue our work with Uber to bring this innovative technology to more cities across the country.”
