According to Pilvi Hämäläinen, Estonian Investment Agency’s FDI representative in Finland, Estonia is a country that has inevitably had to look forward an innovate. “Now Estonia’s e-Residency is already a working concept and there are hundreds of applicants weekly and Starship is cooperating with Daimler to produce the next generation delivery solution,” she added.
Starship Technologies is a company that has developed a delivery robot that will soon hit the streets across the world. The robot’s prototype was developed in Estonia and designed in Finland. The robot uses similar technology as self-driving cars, but are cheaper to build as they do not include the really expensive parts the self-driving cars do.
