Snackbot takes a punt at the Super Bowl

PepsiCo has continued its six-wheeled tour of the US as its Snackbot delivery robot arrived in Atlanta this week in the build-up to the American Football Super Bowl, which takes place this weekend in rival Coca-Cola’s home city.

Now sporting the trademark blue, red and white colour scheme, the self-driving Snackbot distributed drinks and chips (crisps) at a radio event at the Georgia World Congress Center and will attend a number of other events around the major sporting event.

The robot, manufactured by Robby Technologies, made its debut in California last month, and comes as several major brands – including Amazon – look at the opportunities presented by autonomous delivery.
