Robot Deliveries

Amazon has been developing a system to deliver small packages with drones. Walmart is doing the same thing. Soon we may be seeing packages delivered by a variety of robotic devices, not just flying drones.

Kobi Shikar, an engineering and design student at Shenkar School of Engineering and Design in Ramat Gan, Israel, claims they could even replace the need for container lorries.

He said the robotic delivery service could replace the need for large delivery vehicles clogging up the roads but perhaps more usefully it may also remove the need to deliver items during working hours.

Instead the robots would be able to turn up with packages at times more convenient to homeowners.

Mr Shikar said: ‘The Transwheel concept reimagines package distribution as a round-the-clock autonomous service carried out by robotic single-wheel drones that work independently and together to ensure timely, efficient delivery.

‘Each wheel features a self-balancing gyroscopic system, electric arms, and GPS-driven communication capability.
