Track 3
The Final Milers , The Digital Collaborators

With more and more consumers today willing to pay a premium for same-day or instant delivery, retailers are under pressure to find new ways of solving these challenges as ‘on demand’ delivery continues to grow in popularity. Join Dr. Markus Zimmermann, Head of Interaction Design at Starship Technologies, for this session where he will discuss how the company’s fleet of electrically-powered robots are becoming the norm in local neighbourhoods and university campuses around the world. Markus will share insights into the research and development he’s responsible for and how robots are becoming increasingly socially accepted by the general public. This session is a must-attend for all online retailers who are looking to improve the efficiency and customer-centricity of their final mile; and for anyone interested in a ‘behind the scenes’ dive into robotics R&D.

Key learnings/takeaways:

  • Dive into key insights into the research and development of autonomous delivery robots
  • Gain an exclusive look into how consumer behaviour is changing as a result of exposure to the robots 
  • Learn what outsourcing last mile delivery to robots could mean for your customers and ecosystems
