As the future of food-delivery robots has become a reality for Purdue students, the robots have struggled to adjust to the everyday woes of navigating a crowded campus.
On Tuesday, a report was made to the Purdue University Police Department because a Starship robot was stuck in the middle of a crosswalk at Second and Russell streets. An officer was dispatched to assist the robot in crossing the street.
A common struggle for the robots has been navigating busy crosswalks. On the Purdue subreddit, students have taken to posting pictures and videos of the four-wheeled bots in precarious situations.
