A Sushi Delivering Robot May Soon Be Roaming The Streets Of Japan
ZMP designed a robot to delivery sushi to the residents of Japan and it bring it straight to their door
Tokyo robotics firm ZMP joined forces with delivery company Ride On Express to develop a robot that delivers sushi to customers in Japan, coined CarriRo Delivery. The two companies plan to use it through Gin no Sara, a sushi brand owned by Ride On Express.
The robot looks like a small red box car with two lights at the front that resemble eyes. Despite the robot’s size, it can carry enough sushi to feed 60 people. ZMP designed the robot to ride alongside other humans using lights and sensors to detect others around it, moving at a top speed of 3.73 miles per hour. However, because not many laws include autonomous robots, the CarriRo Delivery robot is restricted to private properties for now.
The two companies plan to launch the CarriRo Delivery robot in August 2017.
