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.
