Partnering with Sodexo, JSU‘s food service vendor, the robotic sidewalk delivery system Kiwibot will deliver food from almost all on-campus dining facilities to drop-off locations on campus. JSU is the first campus in Alabama to use Kiwibot, nicknaming their Kiwibot Dex.

“This service allows students, faculty and staff to not only invest their time more productively, but also to merge into robotics. It is an exciting endeavor for Kiwibot to be part of the JSU community and to help students get closer to the world of technology, robotics and entrepreneurship.”

John Tarin, Head of Global Operations, Kiwibot
