Demonstration of automated package delivery robot successfully carried out

Fukuoka City and the Fukuoka Directive Council held an event where local residents could see advanced technologies as part of the "Fukuoka Smart East" initiative.

Delivery robot outline: A small package carrier that travels automatically, can avoid people and obstacles, and travel safely along narrow passages. It can also track leading people, such as delivery workers.

If this vehicle is put into practical use, it will be possible to deliver packages on a narrow aisle or a busy street without relying on trucks and others, and it will also be possible for elderly people and children who have difficulty carrying heavy packages. We expect that it is also useful for parents with children in their arms.

Date: November 28, 2018 (Wed) 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Venue: Former site of Kyushu University Hakozaki Campus Former Headquarters Office 1
