People who live and work in Peachtree Corners now have a new high-tech option for deliveries in a way that’s expected to be much faster and more environmentally friendly.
The Gwinnett County city is now the first city in the world to launch an underground delivery system using robots.
The system will be run by the company Pipedream.
Here’s how it works: A robot travels back and forth delivering food and products through a tunnel.
Right now, the 1-mile tunnel will run from a local shopping center to Curiosity Lab’s 25,000-square-foot smart city innovation center. Lab members will be able to order food from restaurants and get select items on-demand during peak lunch hours in the work week.
