Starship Technologies operates daily around the world. Its robots have traveled millions of miles and made more than 100,000 road crossings every day and achieved more than two million autonomous deliveries by the end of last year. Using the Starship Food Delivery app on iOS and Android, users choose from a range of their favorite foods or drinks, then drop a pin to where they want their delivery sent. Users can then watch the robot move towards them via an interactive map. Once the robot arrives, they receive an alert, and can then meet and unlock it through the app once their identity has been verified using Veriff’s seamless biometric authentication technology at the time of delivery.

“Veriff is always on the lookout for organizations with next-age solutions that truly push the boundaries of technology in our daily lives, and Starship is a great example of that,” said Janer Gorohhov, co-founder and CPO of Veriff. “We are thrilled to partner with Starship to provide our unparalleled identity verification capabilities ensuring security and age appropriate verification for restricted products.”
