Starship Technologies, which has been testing robotic delivery of packages in nearly 60 cities worldwide, got an endorsement today from Daimler AG. The German automaker led a €16.5 million ($17.2 million) seed funding round.

The drones made to stick to the ground as a means to simplify the regulatory procedure, where airborne delivery craft confront higher standards in regards to security conditions before they are able to enter supervised trials and a great deal more examination.
The startup’s delivery bots are designed with various detectors and cameras, and were created to be tamper-resistant and great to work in various climate. They’ve been in testing in Europe and North America on public roads, and have started small scale commercial service in London as of late last year.
