American delivery company FedEx has developed an autonomous robotic delivery device to help retailers distribute same-day orders to their customers.
Designed to satisfy the ever-growing expectations of consumers, the SameDay Bot allows retailers to accept orders from nearby customers and send them by robot directly to the buyer’s home or office that same day.
After discovering that, on average, more than 60 per cent of vendors’ customers live within three miles of a store location, FedEx saw the opportunity to create an on-demand, hyper-local delivery service.
The robot can travel on pavements and along roadsides to safely deliver small-scale shipments straight from a warehouse or store to the customers’ door, the so-called last-mile.
