In the future, robots will be used by retailers to deliver packages to customers faster. A bunch of companies are already testing this idea. FedEx’s SameDay Bot is an autonomous delivery robot based on iBot. It can travel on sidewalks and along roadsides to deliver small items to customers.
The FedEx bot uses LiDAR, cameras, and other sensors to understand its surroundings. It uses machine learning to detect and avoid obstacles, map a safe path, and abide by road and safety rules.
