Ground Delivery Drones Ready to Roll in England

Via: USA Today:

“Ground drone” delivery robots that could easily be mistaken for toilet bowls on wheels are about to start rolling through London.

Starship Technologies CEO Ahti Heinla says the company’s fleet of “small, safe, practical, free from CO2 emissions, and best of all, earthbound” robots can deliver packages and groceries at a fraction of the cost of vehicles that require drivers.

The ground drones are capable of carrying the equivalent of two grocery bags, and customers set the time for the delivery. They travel at a speed of about 4 miles an hour, the equivalent of a brisk walk or slow jog.
