Is that a Robot at your door?

Health IT examples

August 20, 2019:  It’s not enough that motorists and pedestrians need to dodge Bird and Lime scooters, Amazon recently announced it will begin delivering some packages to Prime members in Irvine with a “small number” of its rolling, robotic Scout delivery vehicles. The initial automated robot deliveries will only occur Monday through Friday, during daylight hours, and will initially include an “Amazon Scout Ambassador” (I think that’s a human) to make sure that packages actually get delivered. Irvine is the Scout’s first expansion market beyond Amazon’s Seattle headquarters. And, while Amazon anticipates eventually it will use drones to make its deliveries, in the meantime the rolling robotic Scouts will soon be replacing larger human-driven vehicles whisking those free Same-Day, One-Day, and Two-Day shipped packages your way. And, if you’re flying in or out of SFO, stop by Terminal 3 to take a gander at Briggo’s latest barista. The automated gourmet coffee kiosk operates 24/7 without any on-site staff. . .CLICK TO READ REST OF BLOG
