Ford Motor Co. said in a short statement on May 21 it is working with Agility Robotics to develop a robot that can make deliveries from a self-driving vehicle.
The robot is named Digit and walks like a human. Ken Washington, vice president of Ford research and advanced engineering, wrote a more detailed piece for the Medium website.
The two-legged Digit was designed and built by Agility. It can lift packages weighing up to 40 pounds.
Ford also posted a video to YouTube demonstrating how Digit functions.
