Ford is making a bipedal robot postman that will carry packages to your front door

This bit of news coming via Techradar about Ford’s proposed delivery robot reminds me of the scene in 2004’s “I, Robot” where the Fedex bot greets Will Smith as he tries to leave his apartment to go to work… “Yet another on time delivery…”

“Yet another on time delivery…”

Digit is capable of carrying up 18kg (40lb) and is kitted out with a series of stereo cameras to help it interpret its environment, and a LIDAR system to map terrain. The robot is packed with sensors to enable it to make sense of its surroundings, but there is also a two-way communication system between Digit and the driverless delivery vehicle.
