Whats with the name?
We call our robots Geoffrey after Geoffrey Hinton, well known as the godfather of AI. We received his blessing for using his name when Tiny Mile was founded.
Our robot goes by gender-neutral pronouns (they/them).
Additionally all of our robots have unique names, G and a number representing what number they are. For example G1 was our first prototype, and the most recent one is G10.

Overview of Geoffrey
Geoffrey is driven using the help of remote pilots who control it from the comfort of their homes using a gaming console controller. Pilots then rely on the cameras and GPS systems built into Geoffrey to navigate the busy streets of downtown Toronto. Geoffrey can deliver within a 2 km radius of the restaurant.

How do deliveries work?
Simply place an order on Uber Eats
You order through Uber Eats (within 2km radius), and our dispatch team receives the order at the same time as the restaurant.
Geoffrey is dispatched to the restaurant and picks up your food
When Geoffrey is on their way to the restaurant, you will receive a call from our dispatch team confirming that Geoffrey is delivering your food.
Geoffrey arrives at your location
You meet Geoffrey outside and show your order number to the front camera. The lid will instantly unlock and open, and your food is ready to be taken.
