Delivery robot dogs will then be deployed from the vehicle for the last step of the process, according to the press release. The delivery robots will be able to run up to a person's doorstep to deliver their package.
The automated vehicle will be able to carry multiple robot dogs and handle deliveries to several houses at once, the company said.
