Delivery robots: increasing efficiency across the last mile

The Starship delivery robot fleet has been operational in Milton Keynes for over three years. The robot uses twelve cameras and eight ultrasonic sensors to guide it to its destination, while human operators monitor and occasionally guide robots from remote centres.

With particular expertise in autonomous vehicles, autonomous delivery, electric vehicles, and robotics, Henry Harris-Burland is VP Marketing at Starship Technologies, the world’s leading provider of autonomous last mile delivery services. This multi-faceted role sees Henry responsible for creating and implementing a range of offline and online campaigns to increase awareness, activation and conversion, and drive revenue. Henry has played a pivotal role in overseeing the launch of Starship across five countries, driving relationships with key external stakeholders to help the company secure the necessary permits and licenses to operate.
