Ford’s Smart Robot Can Deliver Packages And Fold Up In Self-Driving Cars



Retailers and delivery systems are trying to keep up with the demand and technology of online shopping. Retailers like Amazon are so advanced they can actually deliver things inside your home or car. The U.S. Postal Service alone delivered more than 6 billion packages in 2018, or double the volume it was handling about 10 years ago.

Ford is now teaming up with Agility Robotics to explore a brand-new frontier in the world of autonomy along with a new way of thinking about how to make deliveries.

The robot named Digit not only works collaboratively with self-driving vehicles, but it can also walk upstairs and past unexpected obstacles to get packages straight to your doorstep.
