What the… “delivery robot to start testing a delivery program as early as this September” in the District

Thanks to a reader for passing on from The Verge:

“Starship — the company behind the adorable, six-wheeled delivery robot we met this year at Mobile World Congress — has received approval from the Washington, DC Department of Transportation to start testing a delivery program as early as this September…the company still needs to figure out a number of things before its robots hit the sidewalks of DC. For one, it’s not exactly sure where it will run the tests. The PDD Pilot Act forbids Starship (and any other company) from operating its robots anywhere in the city’s Central Business District (as defined by the DOT), but everywhere else in the District of Columbia is fair game.”

Stay tuned…
