Toyota Delivery Robot

Should the future see Toyota Delivery Robots perform their tasks admirably, we guess jealous husbands need not fear their wives of starting a relationship or tryst with the well muscled delivery guy any more. The Toyota Delivery Robot is a prototype who was designed to retrieve items for people with limited mobility, making it a digitlal nursing dog without having the need to toilet train it. Other abilities include opening doors, taking out the trash, returning food trays to their tables and even playing fetch! It relies on a laser range finder and particle filter in order to generate maps and self-localize, helping the Delivery Robot navigate its environment in real-time.
