Robot Dogs In Driverless Vans Are The Delivery System Of The Future - Photos by AutoReportNG: 4:19pm On Jan 14
When Nigeria's singer Asa sang in a commercial song for a top bank in Nigeria that "Welcome to the future", not many know that the future is here...

German automative firm continental unveiled a concept delivery system at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, tapping the help of robotics company ANYbotics. The system uses four-legged robot dogs to hop in and out of its driverless delivery vans, carrying packages right up to someone’s door.

The concept combines continental‘s completely autonomous robo-taxi, called the ‘CUbE’, and ANYbotics‘ quadrupedal robots that can open doors and ride elevators. The van carries these robot dogs until it arrives at the correct destination, sending them out through the back door of the car to drop the package off at the recipient’s doorstep.

Continental showed off what this would be like at CES with a pretty impressive demo. The robot dog started out by jumping out of the van, before making its way over the garden in front of a model home and clambering up the set of stairs to the door. The dog then removes the package from its back and place it onto the front porch, before ringing the fake doorbell with one of its arms.

Continental believes the concept system could improve the efficiency of last-mile delivery in the future. ‘With the help of robot delivery, Continental’s vision for seamless mobility can extend right to your doorstep,’ said Ralph Lauxmann, head of continental’s systems & technology, chassis & safety division. ‘Our vision of cascaded robot delivery leverages a driverless vehicle to carry delivery robots, creating an efficient transport team.’

At the moment this is still just a future ambition. Continental doesn’t plan to roll out the robo-delivery dogs or the driverless van concept anytime soon.

In the long run, it's going to be too expensive to maintain and would lead to massive job loss for semi-skilled personnel. Robotics and computer tech is the future anyways, no one can deny that.

A word of advice...stop hating people on the basis of their color or tribe.

Hatred may make you feel powerful for a few minutes, but at the end of the day, it would wreck your life. And it won't benefit you at all.

So, grow up, be mature...and stay healthy.

Not everything gets cheaper with time. Cars for instance, didn't get cheaper with time.
FYI, sim cards were never sold for N130k. Maybe you're talking about Zimbabwean dollars.

I diaagree, yes it may start out expensive but that's why these people are different from us, creating a solution is often just the 1st step for them they'll definitely keep making research till it becomes affordable
