Amazon is secretly working on robots for consumers. According to press agency Bloomberg, the tech giant wants to trial the robots at their employees’ homes and wants to present its domestic robots in 2019.
Walmart has filed a patent to get drones to fly in stores. The American retail giant wants drones to help customers in its stores: shoppers can ask them for directions or to get something checked in the shelves.
In September, Metro Group will launch a pilot program in Düsseldorf, Germany, to see whether robots can deliver online Media Markt deliveries. The move sets it apart from competitors who are experimenting with drone deliveries.
