Amazon began testing a robot for product shipments

In the last year Amazon worked on a project for the development of a robot for its delivery systems and now it was time for its test.  Amazon Scout is the name of this all-electric robot, which was designed to send packets safely.

Amazon Scout is the size of one of those small picnic coolers, which is moved along the sidewalks thanks to its six wheels and from today will be seen by Amazon customers and their neighbors in a neighborhood in the county Snohomish, in the state of Washington.

People in that neighborhood who want to use this type of delivery can make their purchases as they usually do through the Amazon application or via the web on Amazon.com and with the same delivery options with fast shipments, free on the same day , in one day and in two days for Prime members.

The total of Scout robots in the test is 6, which will deliver packages from Monday to Friday and only during daylight hours. Initially the robots will be accompanied by an Amazon technician, traveling their route in an autonomous way.

For this test, Amazon had to have the approval of the local authorities of Snohimish County. In this regard the executive of that county, Dave Somers, pointed out the following,

We are happy to welcome Amazon Scout to our community. As in Amazon, we are always looking for new ways to provide a better service to our residents. From Amazon’s latest innovation to cutting-edge technology, Snohomish County is a great place for business creativity.
