WASHINGTON – A DC resident helped a delivery robot that got stuck in the roots of a tree as it descended the rocky sidewalk in a neighborhood in northwestern DC on Saturday.
Nolan Gray captured video of the robot while it was stuck. He helped the droid off the ground, before posting the video, according to this Twitter post.
“Now that’s cool: I just watched a little delivery robot try (and fail) to navigate the treacherous sidewalks of one of America’s richest neighborhoods. Don’t worry, I saved the little guy, ”Gray said in his Tweet.
From Gray’s Tweets, he appeared to be in the Northwest. Part of this area of DC is home to a very wealthy community.
Delivery robots have become more common in the DMV area, with robots from Starshop Technologies operating in Virginia.
In April, the Fairfax City Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) recently said that autonomous robots from Starship Technologies will soon be delivering food and other items to customers in the city.
FCEDA said it hopes the robots could help connect businesses in the city more directly with local residents during the spread of COVID-19.
