    Fedex local delivery robot.

    I can think of some conditions that might be problematic for these things to deal with.

      WSJ article this morning on autonomous delivery vehicles mentions small deliver robots now delivering pizza, coffee, etc at the George Mason University campus.

      Our hospital, when I was still in practice, had pharmacy robots delivering drug orders to nursing stations.

      The hospital had a 24 hour pharmacy, which is one reason we got the pharmacists involved in the trauma center.

      The robots would roll along the hallways all night delivering orders to the nursing stations. That would be less complex than doing so outdoors and crossing streets,
