Piaggio Fast Forward introduced robot-cargo. A small device will go on sale on November 18 and will cost $3,250.
The Gita robot looks like a suitcase with rounded edges. There is a section for things on its top, that automatically closes when the robot starts.
The device can independently move along a given route, avoiding collisions with obstacles. Its maximum speed is 10 km/h. The robot had sensors on its front side, which helps recognize the face of the parcel recipient.
One charge of the Gita battery is enough for four hours of work. The robot is capable of carrying goods weighing up to 18.1 kg, and its own weight is 22.7 kg.
