Amazon has announced a small self-driving delivery robot named Scout that rolls packages to customer’s home. The robot is currently testing its services in Snohomish County, Washington, accompanied by an actual Amazon employee.

In a statement from the e-commerce site, “the devices will autonomously follow their delivery route but will initially be accompanied by an Amazon employee. We developed Amazon Scout at our research and development lab in Seattle, ensuring the devices can safely and efficiently navigate around pets, pedestrians and anything else in their path.”

There are currently six Scouts surveying Snohomish County at the moment, which operate during the weekdays. Those who live there can now order something from Amazon and wait for the cooler-sized AI to arrive at their door, open its mail hatch, and wait for customers to grab the item.

This is Amazon’s latest attempt at creating more last-mile delivery options, following its introduction of Amazon Key that allows couriers inside homes and the trunk of cars. Currently, the company is looking at drones to deliver packages.
