Starship robots are created and operated by Starship Technologies, headquartered in San Francisco and with R&D facilities in Estonia and Finland. The company was founded in 2014 by two Skype co-founders, Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis. To date, the company's robots have operated in 20 countries and over 100 cities around the world. The robots are designed to deliver goods locally in minutes. They drive autonomously but are monitored by humans who can take over control at any time. In late 2018, Starship announced the world's first commercial rollout of autonomous package delivery on the ground, with hundreds of robots set to start delivering packages straight to consumers' front doors in the Bay Area, in California. In 2021, Starship announced that its robots had completed 1 million autonomous deliveries around the world.
