AusPost to trial delivery robots in Brisbane

Australia Post will launch a four-week robot delivery pilot service in Brisbane on 13 November, the Courier Mail has reported.
In the first such Australian trial, residents in the suburb of New Farm will be able to register and opt to have parcels delivered by an autonomous robot to their door between 6pm and midnight.
For the trial, the robot will be accompanied by a human Australia Post chaperone and will carry one parcel at a time.
Upon arrival at the residence, a text message will be sent to the recipient of the parcel, to open the parcel locker they simply need to reply to the message.
“The small-scale trial will explore if there is customer demand to receive after hour deliveries via a mobile parcel locker,” said an Australia Post spokesman.
“It’s important we get this right and we will only continue exploring this technology where there is community support.”
