San Francisco Mulls Ban On Delivery Robots

Why? Because ROBOTS WILL KILL US ALL! Yes, even delivery robots.

The tech company Marble’s bots use lidar, camera and ultrasonic sensors to avoid pedestrians and navigate pavements, delivering small packages and takeaway food within a mile or two, at walking pace. But if one San Francisco official has his way, every pizza the Marble robot delivers could come with a $1,000 fine and a jail sentence for its human controllers.
