The robot that wants to replace parcel delivery drivers is now on sale.

 The parcel delivery driver-replacing robot is now available for purchase.

Human-labor-capable robots are already on the market. Literally. Digit is now available for purchase, allowing any company to purchase and use them immediately, without the need for programming.

For years, we've been watching the evolution of robots designed to fill jobs. In many cases, they remain in laboratories or do not make it to the end of the chain. This has not been the case with Digit, the recently released delivery and transportation robot.

Digit was created by Agility Robotics, a U.S. company that was founded not to experiment with robots, but to create robots that can be used practically in everyday life.
 




Digit can transport packages and other objects from one location to another. It can also deliver cargo to people on the street. You can see it in action in this video:

Digit is a humanoid robot, but it does not look exactly like a human. It lacks a head and fingers, and its gait is more akin to that of a bird than that of a person. This is due to Agility Robotics' research into the anatomy of various animals in order to develop a system that is stable and adaptable to all types of terrain.

The Digit robot is capable of walking on dirt roads, climbing curbs, and even climbing stairs. It has 360-degree sensors, allowing it to avoid obstacles and bumps in tight spaces like a warehouse. This will be the primary workstation.

It was created to carry out repetitive tasks, such as transporting objects back and forth in a warehouse. However, companies such as Ford have used it to deliver packages on the road using an autonomous vehicle.

According to Agility Robotics, warehouse jobs are currently unfilled, and these robots can fill those positions. Particularly in pandemic situations such as the one we are currently experiencing.

Digit has a significant advantage in that it requires almost no programming to put it to use. It can be integrated into the company's structure without affecting the work chain.

All that is required for Digit to begin working autonomously is the establishment of a route as well as pick-up and drop-off points. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without pay or protest?

However, the cost is prohibitively expensive for the majority of people. Digit is worth $250,000. However, it can be profitable for companies whose warehouses are at a standstill due to confinement or a lack of personnel...
