In a fresh development, the Amazon R&D team has filed patents for the designed delivery robots with a function where they wait while customers try clothes and shoes.
So here how it works, the users will ajar a compartment crafted on an Amazon Locker on caterpillar tracks, by facial recognition or smartphone code. Then he will be able to put any unwanted purchased item back in the locker. This makes it ideal for trying on a variety of clothes sizes.
The waiting bot’s chief objective is to curb the need of separate return deliveries. Amazon aims that the users would have the access to scan for a refund; it is a process which will be supervised remotely by a human representative.
For the delivery to the recipient’s address the “storage compartment vehicles” would be operated from the depot by GPS. It would be competent to move over on the terrain by road, water or air; using tracks; submarine propellers; helicopter rotors and more.
Amazon stressed that the patent filings “do not necessarily reflect current developments to products and services”.
