After the pandemic, delivery robots will replace people as much as possible

After the pandemic, delivery robots will replace people as much as possible

In the Chinese city of Wuhan, which was quarantined due to COVID-19, it was the delivery robots that delivered food and medicine to residents.

Robots also benefit from the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, where autonomous passenger shuttles were entrusted with delivering COVID-19 tests to clinics. If before, before countries began to introduce self-isolation regimes, delivery robots were perceived as something far away. Then today they ceased to be entertainment, turning into an effective tool to combat coronavirus. Over the past few years, robots have been delivering food to offices or home customers who only had to go out and pick up an order.

 In a pandemic and social distancing, robots master new niches for themselves. For many, this trend causes quite obvious fears: cars will leave people without work.

 Phantom Auto, for example, organized the workflow so that remote drivers control the autonomous machines. They can simultaneously control several robots at once. The operator also monitors the condition of the machine and, if necessary, can quickly connect to it without risk to his health. According to experts, such a product may be in demand even after the end of the coronavirus pandemic.
