Simplifying Package Delivery One Robot At A Time

Alleviating the pressures of package delivery is becoming an increasing necessity as online shopping becomes the primary means many people purchase goods. With billions of packages delivered by the U.S. Postal Service in 2018 alone, the strain and sheer volume of shipped packages is staggering. Ford is always looking to streamline our lives, making them more convenient and easier to manage. From delivering packages right into the trunk of your vehicle, to automated delivery, technology is making it all easier. Most recently, Ford has partnered with Agility Robotics to develop Digit, the automated package delivery robot. The self propelled automaton can carry loads up to 40 lbs., and can avoid obstacles in front of it while on delivery runs. For all of the details about what Digit can do, check out the full story here.
