Robots will soon be delivering in London

One day, all of our deliveries will be made by robots...

In the (not so distant) future, if you see a #Starship #Technologies robot rushing 'towards' you, don't be afraid! It will just 'zoom' past you, while doing one more delivery. The tiny six-wheeled robot is being designed to make quick deliveries within a 3-mile radius, and the company wants to fully test it in London and three other European cities.

Mercedes has been asked to be a partner in this Starship Technologies' #project, in order to study the feasibility of using Mercedes vans as a ride, when delivery areas exceed the robot's limited radius. When the robots arrive at their #destination, they will autonomously exit the van and make the delivery. This is obviously quite a smart collaboration between (autonomous?) vehicles and delivery-robots and will certainly revolutionise logistics.

Experts have already pointed to this type of robot as the future competitor to Amazon's #drone which is being used by the company to deliver small parcels to some of its customers' front door.

We just need to get used to having #robots running past us while doing errands. It should be easy, right?!
