Outdoor autonomous delivery robot powered by ROS 2

Hi all,

We released the last-mile delivery robot. Autonomous driving robots in the outdoors are difficult to test due to various regulations, but we can now go outside the world with permission from the Korean government.

“Under the latest regulatory exemption, an autonomous driving robot developed by Korean robot manufacturer ROBOTIS. will be allowed to operate on sidewalks along with pedestrians starting next year. Under the current law, outdoor self-driving robots are categorized as “vehicles” thus cannot run on sidewalks or crosswalks but only on roads. The government, however, allowed an exemption for the delivery robot given the fact that its maximum speed is only 1.5 kilometers per hour, which is too slow to run on roads with other vehicles.” -PulseNews -

This robot was developed to deliver goods and food along the sidewalk outdoors, with the know-how of the previous development of the TurtleBot 3. The robot uses ROS 2, so we are happy to share this wonderful news with our ROS community.

The TV news below contains official permission from the government for outdoor delivery robots, unfortunately in Korean. :smile:
