SEOUL -- Hyundai Motor will partner with Woowa Brothers, operator of South Korea's largest food delivery app, to develop robots that can carry meals from restaurant to door.

The South Korean companies envision a robot that can connect to a condominium's elevator system to travel between floors on its own, for example. The project will also involve developing an integrated management system that can handle multiple robots.
