The New Stuff

Robots from DHL began to deliver parcels


Robots-couriers are no worse than flying drones, so many companies are testing ground-based types of delivery. Recently, their own robotic postmen have developed and started testing in DHL. Robots move after people, performing the role of original porters – postal bots are able to carry up to 150 kilograms of letters, parcels and newspapers.

Post bots look like ordinary containers of one and a half meters in height, put on wheels and capable of maximum movement at a speed of up to six kilometers per hour – at about the same speed a person moves, walking at a rapid pace.

Bots are equipped with sensors that allow them to fix and carefully travel around obstacles and people. Now the main task of robots is to follow the postman-people and help to carry weights. But, probably, in the future they will be released and some. The testing of robots on the streets of Germany will last about two months.

Earlier developers from Starship Technologies developed and began to test robotic couriers on the streets of Estonian cities. From German colleagues, they differ in their small size and carrying capacity, but kids are able to move around the streets without the help of a man.
