Over the past few weeks a little robot with six wheels has been wending its way through Tel Aviv, accompanied by a human operator. It’s made by the Russian company Yandex, which is conducting trial runs in Israel with its delivery robots. 

In the coming months, Yandex robots will join the sidewalks of Tel Aviv, autonomously avoiding pedestrians, cyclists and scooter riders, and delivering food and packages to people’s homes.
