Ford recently announced a partnership with Amazon to deliver packages directly to any Ford or Lincoln vehicle. We thought the idea sounded pretty cool because it would eliminate the risk of a package being damaged or stolen, but now Ford has decided to take deliveries to the next level with an autonomous robot called Digit. Come on Ford, Terminator movie franchise has not taught you anything about autonomous robots?
Digit was created through a partnership with Agility Robotics to develop a new, autonomous method of package delivery. The US postal service delivered more than six billion packages in 2018, which was twice the size of just 10 years ago. Ford believes that our current package delivery infrastructure is not sustainable, so Digit was created.
