Albert Heijn is testing their autonomous food delivery robot at High Tech Campus Eindhoven. Employees and visitors of the Campus can place their orders via a special app. The pilot will last for two weeks.
AH employees place the order in the robot which then drives to the location where the customer is located. “This way you can work undisturbed while lunch is arranged for you,” says a spokesman of the supermarket group. The robot, developed by German/Swiss TeleRetail, uses a virtual map to find its way and is equipped with sensors to make sure it doesn’t run into anything.
The fact that the test takes place on the High Tech Campus has everything to do with the closed character of the (private) terrain. Such a test would not yet be possible on public roads.
