Amazon is reportedly ceasing its live testing of a six-wheel, fully-electric delivery device known as “Scout.”
According to Reuters, Amazon has confirmed that it is stopping an ongoing three-year of the Scout automated delivery robot. In an emailed statement to Reuters, the e-tail giant said the Scout program has not been completely meeting the needs of U.S. customers.
Although employees involved in the pilot program are being matched with other open roles at Amazon, the company does not plan to shut down its Scout project altogether. Amazon told Reuters it is reorienting the program.Chain Store Age
