Amazon is off-roading its nearly four-year test of an autonomous delivery vehicle, dubbed Amazon Scout.
The Seattle-based e-tail giant launched a field test of the electric-powered Amazon Scout in early 2019. In the pilot, six of the self-guided, six-wheeled vehicles — about the size of a small cooler and emblazoned with the Prime logo — made small-package deliveries in a neighborhood in Washington’s Snohomish County. Since then, the test was expanded to Irvine, Calif.; Franklin, Tenn.; and Atlanta.
