Robot-Delivered Groceries in Ann Arbor
Oct. 5, 2020—Ann Arbor, Mich., has a curious new grocery delivery service thanks to startup tech company, Refraction AI. Refraction AI's e-bike, REV-1, is a three-wheeled autonomous robot that delivers meals and groceries to resident's homes.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the e-bike stands at four feet tall and weighs 100 pounds, and can travel in both bike and car lanes at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour.
The REV-1 requires no human interaction, other than the removal of groceries from the robot, and can hold several bags of groceries.
This month, the company will be adding 17 more REV-1 robots in addition to the eight that are already on the roads.
