Amazon has begun testing a fleet of fully-electric autonomous delivery robots. The wheeled cooler-sized robots called Amazon Scouts will begin deliveries in Snohomish County, Washington this week. The robots were devised by Amazon and can roll around their delivery routes at a walking pace.
The six-wheeled boxy bots have an array of sensors that help it navigate the suburbs, detecting obstacles, pets, and people. The robots will deliver during daylight hours Monday to Friday. If you live in Snohomish County, you can get a delivery from Scout by ordering, as they normally would, through the Amazon app or website.
