PepsiCo To Deliver Snacks Via Driverless Vehicles

Pepsico SnackbotStudents at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif. will be receiving PepsiCo’s Hello Goodness snacks from self-driving “snackbots.” The university community can now order food and drinks from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. via the snackbot app to be delivered to more than 50 locations across the 175-acre campus.

The Hello Goodness choices include Starbucks Cold Brew, Baked Lay’s, SunChips, Smartfood Delight, Pure Leaf Tea, bubly and LIFEWTR.

“We’re thrilled to welcome snackbot to our campus, along with its convenient and nourishing options,” said Matt Camino, director of ecommerce at the University of the Pacific in Stockton. “This innovative technology from PepsiCo is enhancing campus life for our students, staff and faculty alike, who have embraced this new way of snacking from PepsiCo.”

The snackbots, developed in partnership with Robby Technologies, have a range of more than 20 miles on a single charge, and are equipped with headlights and a camera that allow it to navigate in full darkness or rain, as well as all-wheel drive capabilities for handling hills and curbs.

The ordering app is available for iOS with a University of the Pacific email address.
