Starship Technologies is boldly going where no other company has gone in Indiana with new delivery robots at Purdue University. The autonomous service officially launched Monday, making Purdue the first in the state and Big 10 to bring the technology onto its campus.

The sidewalks are busy with students going about campus. Amongst the foot traffic a tiny orange flag can be seen navigating the crowds. The flag is attached to a little six-wheeled robot that delivers food. The autonomous cooler on wheels is expected to deliver hundreds of meals every day to students and employees.

As Purdue University students complained on social media about overcrowded living spaces, Indiana Department of Homeland Security officials visited the West Lafayette campus this week to ask questions.

Still, Purdue officials insist there was no “investigation” of the living space crunch.

Purdue University and its police department are investigating the allegations of misconduct that shut down its summer camp/research study called “Camp DASH.”

University officials believe most of the allegations – among those, sexual offenses and battery – can be linked to one female participant.

Vice Provost for Student Life Beth McCuskey says this is the first such report at any of Purdue’s multiple camps.

She says it’s unclear how this may affect those camps’ reputation.
