Google robots to challenge Amazon drones for home delivery

London, Dec. 05 : Google's new robotic grocery delivery service is expected to challenge Amazon's drone project which envisages transporting goods to its customers by air.

The company has recently begun Google Shopping Express in San Francisco and San Jose, which is going to directly challenge Amazon's Prime Air Project, the BBC reports.

According to the report, Google's robots could be paired with its self-driving car research to help automate the delivery of goods to people's doors.

Google said it has taken over seven robotics companies in the past half-a-year to develop its own product.

A company spokesman confirmed that the effort was being headed up by Andy Rubin, who was previously in charge of the Android operating system.

However, Google does not plan to sell the resulting product to consumers at this stage.
