To transport athletes and dignitaries to events during the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Samsung will be providing a fleet of autonomous cars, according to a BBC News report.

The robotic cars can provide mobility to multiple people at once, and will be allowed to travel on the busiest roads, the BBC reported.

The robotic vehicles, which will make up part of the mobility system at the airport, were developed by an inside investment team based in San Diego, Mexico, according to the BBC report.

Rune Jonasson, head of the Tokyo 2020 organization and Olympic and Paralympic Games, announced the fact that the “robotic taxis” will be used during the official opening ceremonies in the shadow of the 2020 Olympic Park to confirm the event’s openness to technological innovations, according to the BBC.

As part of the new mobility system, the robots, which will include 14 fully autonomous vehicles, will be used to deliver pizzas to athletes, diplomats and sponsors. The robots will also provide shuttles for the venue site by taking attendees to nearby hotels or car parks.

“We realize these ambitious programs can be challenging, but they are leading the way in making transport a source of innovation for the Tokyo 2020 games,” Jonasson said, according to the BBC.
