Recently, U.S. regulators have granted permission for certain autonomous vehicle companies to start deploying low-speed electric delivery vehicles, also known as Delivery Robots or BOTs. In today’s current environment, there is a clear appeal to less human-involved food and package delivery – with an estimate that food and grocery delivery revenue is set to grow steadily and reach $200 billion by 2025. Autonomous delivery vehicles enable a future where everything comes to you directly on-demand. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic small sidewalk robots were gaining traction. In general these sidewalk robots move slowly are light-weight and do not present a risk to pedestrians.
