Coronavirus outbreak: Robots offer free delivery to health workers of English town
Food and supplies are being brought to the front doors of health workers in Milton Keynes, England for free by automated robots. U.S.-based Starship Technologies has been operating the robotic vehicles in Milton Keynes for the last two years, but the company has seen a surge in usage since the British government implemented a nationwide lockdown on March 23. While the robots are being booked more than ever, grocery deliveries are nonetheless being offered to National Health Service (NHS) staff free of charge. The robots travel on pavements at a low top speed of 6.4 kilometres per hours and employ multiple sensors, cameras and a radar to ensure they complete journeys safely.
