I have heard quite a few disrespectful remarks about my robot vision from dear colleagues, but I know who will have the latest laugh, check this one from the first pizza delivery robot ever, or check out what Google cars can do now a days – in my world view, these two video clips are scientific proof that I am right, robots anno 2020 will rule the delivery market …
