The Parliament of Estonia passed a law in 2017 to allow delivery robots on pedestrian streets. Till now there was no problem with these robots, but due to heavy snowfall, it was proved that this kind of experiment is not good on pedestrian paths. These trucks are stuck on a pedestrian path in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. A Twitter user has shared a video showing how this experiment has failed.
Seven such robotic trucks are seen stranded in the video. Some of them tried to get through the snow but they could not do so. The 21-second video has so far garnered over two lakh views and many comments. These robots run at a speed of 6 kilometers per hour. They have sensors and cameras to take information about the surrounding path and conditions. The purpose of using these robotic couriers was to reduce the cost of delivery. However, due to not taking into account the heavy snowfall in Estonia, it is causing hardship to the pedestrians.
Estonia does not shy away from adopting new technology. Despite Estonia’s low population and no pollution problems, the government of Estonia is promoting electric vehicles. Strict rules have also been implemented in Estonia to deal with new variants of Corona.
