The dog-sized robots are designed to carry small parcels or grocery orders over short distances (currently touted as a 3-mile radius with a 30-minute delivery time). Using smart technology similar to Google’s self-driving cars, the robots navigate local sidewalks, avoiding pedestrians and stopping at crossings along the way.
