Purdue University welcomes robots on campus

Students from Purdue are still trying to find their way around campus and now they are not alone. Purdue will introduce about 30 new 2 feet tall delivery robots navigating their way around campus, as well as delivering items to students and staff.

To use the robots all you need to do is download the app, place your order, enter a delivery destination and the Starship robots deliver.
