is that so?
Well.....not so fast:
...only if it's programmed to be able to both sense, and curse when it steps in dog-squeeze.
That robot has a long way to go before it can do all of the stupid a human UPS driver has to do. Same as those stupid ing electric wagons that move pizzas or whatever up and down city sidewalks. Same as those drones that can drop 1 pound of cardboard on a target in somebody who lives behind a flaming moat and raised drawbridge's back yard because the hassle would make it impractical otherwise.
Not saying this is you, OP, but people who think UPS drivers are close to robotic replacement do not understand all that the job entails. They have a picture in their heads of what the job is and think the "solutions" they see publicized can or will soon be able to do it. It'll happen eventually, but not soon.
The end is near!
That's at least as good as some preloaders.
Sure but preloaders can recharge on a ten minute break with a can of Rockstar and a black and mild.
The robot needs an outlet and at least a couple hours.
They should put those things in management right now. Anything is an improvement
So many other uses come to mind before delivery applications would be used, for example; military, healthcare, police force, highly hazardous jobs ect.
I think even our runners are still better than this bot.
How will it respond when a dog or several dogs come charging at it?

We can't get new batteries for our diads that die mid afternoon every day....but they are gonna keep these things reliable. Sure.
You old guys on your desktops are so cute.
Next contract: 1000 ups shares to every displaced employee!
New batteries aren't hard to get, you just have a lazy management team.
That's not exactly some big revelation.
