Get ready to share pavements with stocky little delivery bots

You’re a college student in the US. You had a rough night studying or partying and all you can think about is food. Of course, you’re too tired to cook, so you’ll just order.But instead of greeting your favorite delivery guy at the door, you find a cute little robot cuddling your meal.

At least, that’s the concept Russian self-driving startup Yandex and the Grubhub food app want to make reality. 

The two companies have teamed-up and announced on Tuesday that, later this fall, they’ll be rolling out food delivery services by autonomous robots at select campuses.
