About Starship Technologies
Starship Technologies is building a fleet of autonomous robots designed to deliver goods locally in 15-30 minutes within a 2-3 mile radius. The robots drive autonomously but are monitored by humans who can take over control at any time. Launched in July 2014, by two Skype co-founders, Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis, Starship is changing the way parcels, groceries and food are delivered.
We’re the leading business in the world scaling up production of autonomous machines that are driving in public spaces. Currently, we have over 100 robots on the streets delivering packages, groceries and food for our clients in 6 cities across 5 countries.
Head of Computer Vision and Perception
Kristjan will share the fascinating story of the Starship Technologies.
In order to make our cute autonomous delivery robots intelligent, the robots must constantly get smarter from their experience in the world. So Kristjan will also show examples of the complex problems encountered by robots and shares our philosophy of data-driven development and explain how we use computer vision and deep learning to understand the environment around us.
Senior Mechanical Engineer
Siim’s responsibility at Starship is to make sure our robot hardware is functional, reliable, easy to manufacture and cost efficient to produce.
He has a background in industrial robotics and spent a large part of his time at university building different mobile robots.
He is a real tech nerd and if he’s not tinkering with electronics projects in his free time, he is working on mastering the Chinese language.
Siim will talk about Product development at Starship. He will share the philosophy at Starship for achieving shorter development cycles, making data driven decisions and interconnecting disciplines.
