Talabat joins hands with Terminus Group to launch autonomous food delivery robots at Expo 2020

Talabat is proud to announce its partnership with Terminus Group to launch autonomous food delivery robots, revolutionising sustainable last mile delivery at Expo 2020.

Sustainability, one of Expo 2020’s subthemes, is top of mind for both talabat and Terminus. Jointly designed by both organisations for high efficiency, the robots operate sustainably and fully integrate both talabat’s app interface and Terminus’s Robot Management System – as well as boast a large capacity, password-secure compartments, and can deliver thousands of orders per day.

Employing advanced artificial intelligence (AI) for point-to-point food delivery, the robots will transport orders from talabat’s state-of-the-art, two-storey cloud kitchen to customers in designated drop-off points at the Expo site. Customers can unlock robots using unique QR codes or order IDs to ensure that food is delivered in a safe, contactless, and seamless manner to customers.

Terminus Victor Ai, CEO and founder of Terminus Technologies Group, said: “We’re proud to partner with talabat to bring our expertise and knowledge together to introduce autonomous delivery robots at Expo 2020. Equipped with AI, the robots will introduce a smart and sustainable way of delivering food to designated areas across the Expo site, as well as help in solving issues such as shortages of riders. The project reflects talabat’s strong efforts to adopt innovative solutions as we head towards a future powered by digital transformation.”

He added: “Our cooperation with talabat will continue to solidify and deepen as we look for ways to work together in the field of intelligent delivery. The introduction of autonomous delivery robots at Expo 2020 marks the beginning of our partnership with talabat. In the future, both sides will strive for more innovative business models to be applied to different delivery scenarios in UAE and other countries across the region.”
