Vancouverites are getting robots to deliver Pizza Hut pizza to their homes. If successful, the pizza robots will be delivering pizza across Canada. Do not know what they will do in the wintertime. Will there be shovels attached to the robot with snowmobile tracks? They can always retrofit the robots as Martian rovers later if they fail at delivering pizza.
The Mounties always get their man. Now every Canadian can get their pizza. I demand a poutine robot!
I read the Three Laws of Robotics by Asimov, there is no mention of robots delivering pizza to humans.
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
Serve Robotics’ latest generation of robots are able to operate routinely without human intervention and can rely on their onboard capabilities to ensure safe operation. This industry first is the result of nearly five years of work by the Serve Robotics team and represents a major step forward for the autonomous vehicle industry, significantly lowering the barriers for autonomous delivery at scale.
“Serve is excited to partner with Pizza Hut to provide Vancouver customers with the convenience and reliability of zero-emissions robotic delivery,” said Dr. Ali Kashani, Serve Robotics CEO. “This is an important step forward in our efforts to expand our delivery platform to serve more cities and communities.”
“This signals an exciting step forward for the future of delivery technology in Canada,” said Manish Dhankher, Pizza Hut Canada’s director of operations. “We’re confident Vancouverites will not only experience delight in having a robot deliver their food but will also find this complements Pizza Hut’s existing delivery service, allowing us to deliver more food to more people.”
