Soon, a small autonomous robot “Yandex.Rover” will start delivering orders along the streets of Moscow. Daniil Shuleiko, General Director of Yandex.Taxi, announced this on his Facebook page.
We talked about the Yandex.Rover project about a year ago. This six-wheeled robot is equipped with a special compartment for transporting small loads. The car is equipped with a set of sensors that allow you to recognize objects, plan a route, avoid obstacles, let pedestrians and animals pass.
“This handsome man is already preparing to leave for a shift in one of the “shops” in Moscow. It turned out that agreeing on the appearance of the Rover is not at all a task for a day.“, – wrote Mr. Shuleiko.
Thus, the robot will soon start delivering goods ordered through the Yandex.Lavka service. Initially, Yandex.Rover will serve a limited number of customers in business centers who go down to order themselves.
The geography of the robot’s work has not been specified. Daniil Shuleiko admitted that there is a risk of theft of the rover, noting that it is quite heavy, and its movements are tracked.
