CITY OF CHARLOTTE AND TINY MILE TO TEST ROBOTS FOR COFFEE DELIVERY TO REDUCE TRAFFIC AND CARBON EMISSIONS

  • 5 mths ago

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 1, 2022) –The City of Charlotte on Friday announced a partnership with Tiny Mile to test a robotic coffee delivery service in Plaza Midwood.

The two-month pilot program seeks to reduce traffic and carbon emissions by using small, heart-eyed pink robots to deliver coffee and food from Undercurrent Coffee's 2012 Commonwealth Avenue location to residents within a one-mile radius.

Tiny Mile is a Toronto-based company that has successfully and safely used remote controlled robots for deliveries totaling more than 62,000 miles in Canada. The company selected Charlotte to debut its technology in the U.S.

"In Charlotte, we are embracing new technologies and welcoming the future of innovation with open arms," said City Council Member Malcolm Graham, chair of the city's Economic Development Committee. "The pilot project will put this concept to the test and determine if it should be expanded to other areas of the city."
