【看英文中國郵報學英文】大家很快就能看到送貨機器人穿梭在大街小巷的身影。

Amazon’s self-driving robots will be roaming the streets of another neighborhood.

美國電商龍頭亞馬遜公司說,運送機器人大約是一隻拉布拉多犬的大小,下面裝有六個輪子,未來將開始服務加利福尼亞州爾灣市的顧客們。今年初,亞馬遜已先在西雅圖郊區對機器人進行測試。

The online shopping giant says the six-wheeled robots, about the size of a Labrador, will begin delivering packages to customers in Irvine, California. It comes after Amazon began testing them in a suburb of Seattle at the beginning of the year.

另外,亞馬遜提到,機器人外型設計為淺藍色,側邊印有亞馬遜prime會員官方標誌。機器人能夠避開所有垃圾桶或行人,但現在剛上路還是必須有一名員工隨側。

Amazon says the robots, which are light blue and have the Amazon smile logo stamped on its sides, are able to avoid crashing into trash cans or pedestrians. Still, a worker will accompany the robots at first.

其他公司已經在各大學校園進行類似的送貨機器人服務測試,提供外送漢堡或蘇打給學生。

Other companies have been testing similar delivery robots on college campuses, delivering burgers or soda to students.

亞馬遜說,送貨機器人Scout將從週一至週五送貨到顧客家門口,而且僅限白天。

Amazon says its robots, which it calls Scout, will be delivering orders to doorsteps Monday to Friday and only during the day.
