    The delivery robot Scout is six-wheeled robot it looking a bit like other delivery robots which are already being piloted on the sidewalks across the globe. However, this was developed by Amazon. The company claims that the electric system is the size of a beach cooler and cruises at a pace of walking.

    Scout is going to be piloted in Snohomish County, Washington, which borders Seattle's King County. The company don't want to scare or confuse people in the resident by little blue robots cruising around their neighbourhoods. The company has even released an ad with jaunty startup music to ensure people that there is nothing to fear about the delivery robots.

    In the initial stage, the pilot program will involve only six Scouts. The bots are well designed to reach their destination autonomously. But as the program is in the initial phase all the six models will be accompanied by the employees of Amazon to ensure everything goes well as planned. If Amazon is planning to adopt Scout more widely, then it must have to augment last-mile logistics carriers like UPS, FedEx and USPS.
