There’s been much speculation surrounding potential drone delivery services, but with regulation debates slowing its progress, Starship Technologies are to begin testing an alternative autonomous delivery system using pedestrian robots. 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.
