Ford and Agility Robotics have teamed up to build a robot named Digit.
This robot can walk upright on two legs, go up and down stairs, and carry up to 40 pounds at a time, CNBC reported Wednesday.
Ford has taken an interest in this project because this walking robot is part of a long-term plan involving autonomous vehicles. Deliveries of food or mail via self-driving cars will have a way to get from the car to the front door, thanks to Digit. For companies such as Domino’s Pizza and Postmates, this is big news. More
