Amazon is piloting its own delivery was, of course, just a matter of time before Amazon deployed delivery robots. The six-wheeled robot looks a fair bit like a number of the delivery robots already being piloted on sidewalks all over the world. The company no doubt wanted to get word out before residents were confused by little blue robots cruising around their otherwise quiet neighborhoods. The ‘bots are designed to autonomously reach their destination, but these early models will be accompanied by Amazon employees to make sure everything goes as planned. If Amazon does adopt Scout more widely, the robot could eventually augment last-mile logistics from carriers like UPS, FedEx and USPS.
