Company description

Kiwi Campus is a web and mobile platform where students can order food on-demand in campus colleges and get it delivered by robots. We make money by taking a cut from restaurants, marking up prices and sampling and advertising. Our growth at the moment is only capped by how fast we can build robots. Robots are comparatively inexpensive ($1200 USD including labor). This allow us to cut the expenses 4x than U.S couriers. We started in UC Berkeley in March.The robot is built on top of an RC CAR, we are making these autonomous using only vision, with only a handful of cameras (no lidar). That means a lot of machine learning and image processing. Also we use GPS and sensor fusion for support.

Our robots are 10-20 times cheaper than competition. We are solving computer vision instead of using expensive sensors and hardware. 90% of our engineers and support team are from Colombia, that allowed us to have seniors developers at 1/10 of the cost of Silicon Valley.
