Kiwibot 400x275Kiwibot, a robotic delivery service that has completed more than 150,000 robot deliveries in Santa Monica, Calif., and other locations, has announced the launch of its next-generation Kiwibot 4.0. The company plans to expand deliveries to other cities beginning in May, and has partnered with Chick-fil-a to pilot robot deliveries with the fast-food chicken giant.

Beginning in May 2021, customers who order through local Shopify-powered portals in Los Angeles, San Jose, Miami, Pittsburgh, and Detroit will be able to access Kiwibot deliveries, the company said in a statement.

The next generation Kiwibot 4.0 includes a new set of cameras, lights, speakers, and modular features that aim to enhance robot-human interaction, including the ability to “wink”. The Level 3 autonomous devices are equipped with high-tech sensors that detect people, traffic lights, vehicles, and have the ability to make path planning, and obstacle avoidance decisions. The robots are supported remotely by trained human supervisors to cross streets and stop immediately to ensure safe operations, the company said.

Robotics Market: Agriculture


CarbonRobotics400x275Carbon Robotics has unveiled its third-generation autonomous weed elimination robots. The Autonomous Weeder combines robotics, artificial intelligence and laser technology to safely and effectively drive through crop fields to identify, target, and eliminate weeds. 

Unlike other weeding technology, Carbon said its robots use high-power lasers to eradicate weeds through thermal energy without disturbing the soil. This allows farmers to use less herbicides and reduce labor to remove unwanted plants while improving the reliability and predictability of costs and crop yield.

“AI and deep learning technology are creating efficiencies across a variety of industries and we’re excited to apply it to agriculture,” said Paul Mikesell, founder and CEO of Carbon Robotics. “Farmers, and others in the global food supply chain, are innovating now more than ever to keep the world fed. Our goal at Carbon Robotics is to create tools that address their most challenging problems, including weed management and elimination.”
