The Job Apocalypse Cometh: It’s machine over man as FedEx introduces delivery robot

FedEx’s deliveries are becoming automatic — thanks to its new robotic deliveryman!

The international courier has introduced its latest technological innovation, the FedEx SameDay Bot, a mobile robot capable of making home deliveries on its own.

The robot, equipped with sensors and artificial intelligence, has a wheel system that enables it to navigate streets, sidewalks, sand, puddles, slopes and even stairs as it maps the quickest destination route. It’s even designed to stop at traffic lights.

FedEx SameDay Bot will perform test deliveries this summer from select facilities to companies such as Pizza Hut, AutoZone, Lowe’s, Target, Walgreens and Walmart.

Don Frieson, Lowe’s executive vice president of supply chain, is excited about the robot’s capabilities.
