If you are an Amazon shopper, living in the Snohomish County, Washington, be on the lookout for “Scout”. The self-driving robots have started delivering packages to your doorstep. The robots are about the size of your household Labradoodle, light blue, with six wheels and the Amazon smile logo on its side. The initial testing will include six of these robots.
Amazon says “Scout” will have an employee providing supervision for a while. “Scout” does have the capability to maneuver around pets and pedestrians. No information on how the process will work. Amazon has not provided much information on the new service.
Other companies have been testing similar services with delivery robots on college campuses. These robots deliver fast food and snack to students. Will this lead to end of the pizza delivery guy?
