A new service has launched in Milton Keynes in the UK that allows people to order deliveries by a robot. Residents can get parcels sent to a depot and receive a notification once they arrive. They can then get the items delivered to their door by a robot, at a time of their choosing.
These robots are able to cross the road and work their way around people or animals thanks to ultrasonic sensors, nine cameras, radar, and GPS.
