UNC Charlotte Flooding Campus With New AI-Powered Delivery Drones


UNC Charlotte has just announced plans to flood the campus with AI-powered food delivering ‘smart robots’.

The new deliver drones are called ‘Starship Robots’ and are touted as being ‘99% autonomous’, equipped with dozens of cameras, microphones, and sensors that record everything all of the time. They can fit up to 3 bags of groceries or several hot meals inside their internal crevasse.

Here’s a quick video showing how the new AI machines will work in practice:
