Delivery Robots

Because humans know better..delivery robots will need permits to roam free in San Francisco

0

We’ve all seen the movies…'The Terminator' and 'I, Robot'…we know what happens when we, humans, let robots roam free without restrictions.
(Killer robots!)

So good for the city of San Francisco as they passed legislation requiring delivery robots to have permits before they can roam city sidewalks.

City supervisors proposed an outright ban on delivery robots but settled on a permitting system.

Chief executives for autonomous delivery companies Starship Technologies, Marble and Postmates submitted a letter saying they welcomed government regulations.

The robots can't go more than 3 miles per hour and human operators must be nearby.
(Humans!)

A maximum of nine "autonomous delivery devices" may be allowed at any time in the city.

Humans 1. Delivery (Killer) robots 0.
