Sidewalk last mile delivery robots: a billion dollar market by 2030?

Sidewalk last mile delivery robots: a billion dollar market by 2030?
Last mile delivery is the most expensive part of the delivery chain, often representing more than 50% of the overall cost. This is mainly because it is the least productive and automated step.

Robot colleague improves elderly care in nursing homes and hospitals
The rapidly ageing population is bringing new challenges to European society. Care institutions and hospitals are facing serious staffing shortages, as fewer and fewer people choose to become healthcare professionals, while at the same time the number of old (and sick) people is constantly on the rise.
