Delivery robots make deliveries more efficient

Delivery robots seem out of a science fiction movie, but they are already a reality. In many cities of the world, these robots increase the efficiency of deliveries. These robots have an engine that go as fast as 40 Km/h and can carry up to 200 kg.

Delivery robots keep the products in the proper conditions, and when they get to the customers, the only thing they must do is input a code in a touch screen to retrieve their order.

Autonomous robots have many advantages such as reduced delivery costs and an increase in efficiency. These robots aren’t exclusively to deliver food or groceries, Amazon is investing in the development of its robot scout.

Scout is an autonomous robot tested at some U.S. locations. The company recently announced that it will open a development center in Helsinki, Finland. The objective of this new development center is to create a 3D software to simulate the complexity of real life.

This 3D technology will help Scout to increase the safety of the deliveries. To equip this development center, Amazon acquired the 3D modeling firm Umbra, that works with graphic designers and engineers to create visually complex 3D models.

Delivery robots will be an asset that will be useful in last mile delivery.

Another example is the Wingcopter, a German-design drone that greatly reduces delivery times. This vehicle is saving lives by delivering vaccines to remote areas in Vanuatu, an island in the South Pacific.

The success of this initiative lead the German startup to team up with UNICEF to deliver covid-19 vaccines to millions of people in Africa and South-east Asia.

These drones have a world record reaching speeds of up to 240 km/h, these numbers

attracted further investments to the firm, and they will be used to expand and improve

their technology.

These robots are operational now, but many other prototypes presented at the Silicon Valley Robotics Industry Awards present as innovative solutions that call for an accelerated development.

For example, a human-shaped robot to assist in warehouse tasks, also automated robots that use GPS, wi-fi and lidar scanners to increase the safety in construction sites. All these robots present a future of possibilities for different industries.
