The robots aren't coming. They're already here.
Amazon's scout robot is delivering packages to people in Franklin, TN. The Nashville bedroom community is one of just a few neighborhoods around the country to get Amazon robots deployed. It'll be scurrying down the sidewalks of historic Franklin getting Prime deliveries to their customers.
Amazon says the robot moves about the same speed as a person walking. It can swerve to avoid other pedestrians or pets. For now, it will be accompanied by an employee overseer. But soon, they will break free of their chaperones and go it alone.
