Delivery of Russian Post parcels with the help of Yandex unmanned delivery robots has started in Moscow. This is stated in the message of the postal operator.
At the first stage, 36 robots from 27 branches in Moscow will deliver parcels. Now delivery is carried out from four branches of the Khamovniki district. Within a month, 23 more branches will be connected near the metro stations “Belorusskaya”, “Sokol”, “Airport”, “Tsvetnoy Boulevard”, in Ramenki and other districts. Delivery radius – 2 km.
The service can be used through the Russian Post application on Android. Now the cost is 1 RUB. Delivery status can be tracked through the app. When the robot brings the parcel to the entrance of the house, the recipient will receive a verification code in SMS, which must be entered in the application. After that, the robot will open the lid and return the parcel, Interfax reports.
At the end of last year, autonomous robotic couriers from Yandex appeared in a number of districts of Moscow, as well as in Innopolis near Kazan. They deliver food from supermarkets and restaurants to the customer’s entrance.
