Would you like to have a cute robot that can carry your groceries or equipment? Shopping is fun, but carrying heavy bags can get real old fast. Now we have the futuristic Gita cargo-carrying robot!
This compact machine can autonomously follow you around and take on your burdens. It is capable of keeping up with your walking speed and maintaining distance.
At a glance, this robot would like an adorable rice cooker with two wheels. The top lid will open up the main trunk. Inside, you have enough space to store your belongings. For security, the container is lockable.
Gita cargo-carrying robots come in two sizes. If you only need to carry smaller objects, Gitamini will be an excellent companion. The medium-sized Gita is more powerful and can take more cargo because of the larger capacity.
The smaller Gitamini can travel up to 21 miles while carrying weight up to 20 pounds. The larger version can carry up to 40 pounds, but the range will be decreased to only 12 miles. The heavier robots certainly consume more power.

Nevertheless, those maximum distances are still within a walking radius. So it is unlikely that your robot will run out of battery before reaching its destination. Gita is also lightweight and portable. You can easily pick it up, using its handle, to avoid stairs and curbs.
Now you may be wondering about the way this robot moves. The two-wheeled Gita would
remind you of a self-balancing hoverboard. When this cool gadget is motionless or in standby mode, it will sit right up on its bottom. Gita will perk up when it needs to follow you and roll on its two wheels.
Gita was designed by Piaggio Fast Forward, an Italian company. The designer equips the robot with multiple cameras and sensors, which allow it to follow the owner. The integrated vision system allows this robot to identify you. Gita will roll around closely behind as you walk to your next stop.
To activate “follow” mode, you just need to stand in front of Gita to enable pairing. This robot will see you and lock you as a target that needs to be followed.
Gita is intelligent! There is no need for GPS or Bluetooth. The sensors integrated within this robot are adequate. The robot can move up to 6mph, so it can still catch you even while running.
The robot will allow you to perform your daily chores much more efficiently. There is no need to use your car for short-distance shopping trips when you have Gita! It is an economical and eco-friendly solution that will make your errands feel more fun.
The way Gita moves will remind you of the adorable ball-shaped BB-8 droid from the Star Wars franchise. The designers have successfully brought sci-fi into reality. In the future, we may see more inventions like Gita, and we can co-exist peacefully with cute robots.
