Robots will deliver food to the Ball State campus

MUNCIE, Ind. — A spaceship has landed at Ball State University.

Starting Wednesday, a fleet of 24 Starship Food Delivery robots were deployed and available to Ball State faculty, staff and students. These advanced robots allow users to deliver food, snacks and drinks directly from various campus restaurants.

According to Starship Technologies, the delivery robots can deliver the equivalent of three packages and are equipped with six wheels, an obstacle detection system, 12 cameras, ultrasonic sensors, radar and more.

Starship robots produce zero emissions and are already in operation on college campuses across the country. Starship Technologies said their delivery robots have made more than 3.5 million deliveries and traveled millions of miles.

“Ball State has a very close-knit campus, and we think students will love having robots become a part of their community to make their lives more convenient and maybe a little more fun with robots!” said Chris Naider, director of business development for Starship Technologies.

Individuals who wish to use Starship’s delivery robots will need to download the Starship Food Delivery app to their mobile phone. Users can then order in the app from several restaurants on campus and choose a delivery location or place a pin where they meet the robot.

“Starship robots provide our students, faculty and staff, as well as campus visitors, with a safe and efficient way to deliver food to their seats,” said Karen Adkins, senior director of dining, catering and events support services. “This will make the university experience more enjoyable, saving time for those who use the service.”
