There are nine cameras on the 'bot, which helps it figure out where it's going.

The robot is semi-autonomous, which means that for the most part, it can find its own way around. When it encounters an obstacle, however, a remote human operator advises the plucky machine on how to proceed.

The plan is to sell the delivery robot to supermarkets or local businesses, which will use it to handle deliveries.
