Self-driving delivery vehicles may be getting closer to becoming a reality, but Ford believes there's one leg of the process that could be further solved by robots. The auto giant has partnered with startup Agility Robotics to create a two-legged robot called 'Digit' that can ferry packages to your doorstep. It solves a problem generated by self-driving delivery vehicles, which is that if there's no humans in the driver's seat that can drop off a package, autonomous robots can pick up the slack.

Ford's robot is capable of lifting packages that weigh 40lbs, so it can deliver your pizza, Amazon package or groceries straight to your doorstep. Since Digit is designed to move like a human, it's able to walk up and down stairs, traverse uneven terrain and regain its balance even if a human bumps into the machine on a busy sidewalk.

Other delivery robots, such as those created by Starship Technologies, are fairly limited in terms of where they can deployed because they're equipped with wheels that make it impossible to go up and down stairs. Instead, Digit is able to walk upright on two legs, allowing it to navigate a wider array of environments.
