Starship announces one million deliveries, tops in the robotic transport world

A Starship robot waits for an order at a market in England

Readers will know that I was involved with Starship Delivery Robots since the start. I'm not compensated there any more, but as a stockholder I have a bias of course, but their recent announcement of one million deliveries is a real milestone by any objective standard. That also means 1.6 million miles and over 600,000 hours of unmanned commercial operation. The only other company with any significant record of unmanned operation is Waymo -- but theirs are fewer, but of a much harder problem. Nobody else is even close, not when it comes to operating with nobody inside and doing service for real paying customers.

Here is my new article on Starship's milestone at Forbes:

Starship reaches one million deliveries.
