Deutsche Post, part of DHL, is testing a robot to accompany mail deliverers on their routes and carry the post in the German town of Bad Hersfeld.
Residents of two delivery districts in Bad Hersfeld can immediately expect to start seeing the self-propelled electric “PostBOT” accompanying the mail carrier.
The robot can carry up to six post trays, relieving carriers of their heavy loads. It also frees up the deliverers’ hands, making it easier for them to distribute the mail.
