A billion packages Liu Zhiyong, founder and CEO of Zhen Robotics, which manufactures the robot, sees a bright future for his yellow creation.At the moment, the yellow robots in the Kafka compound have little to trouble them, moving along a wide pavement with no obstacles – and no cars.Weighing 30 kilograms and with a theoretical top speed of 12 kilometers per hour on their six wheels, the robots have four cameras constantly scanning the world around them and a laser teledetection system allowing them to avoid obstacles.Not everyone is convinced the robots are a long-term logistics solution.CEO Liu also says the robot will soon be equipped with the necessary technology to operate a lift, meaning it will no longer be confined to ground floor deliveries.Liu has a warning for anyone trying to vandalize or steal the yellow robot.
