Gamaru is a smart cargo solution that aims to take the middleman out of the equation. Drones get your package from the warehouse, you get your package from the drones. It’s that simple!
The system relies on tracking containers in the shape of barrels that house and protect packages of varying size as they make their way from the warehouse to consumer. The barrels are loaded on wheeled robotic platforms that can move autonomously throughout cities and neighborhoods. Users can track the location of their packages and visit a robot-drone to access it using their smartphone (as you would with Amazon locker) or wait for it to be delivered to their home. For security and to help with navigation, a flying drone accompanies and monitors each rover. Now, if only you could get it to toss packages over the fence too!
