It is equipped with a navigation system which uses LIDAR to create a 3D map. G Plus is able to move with a maximum speed of slightly less than 15 kilometers per hour; while if the robot will notice that in the environment — a lot of people and cars, he may reduce speed to approximately 10 km/h.
Plus when G reaches the destination, it automatically places the cargo at the desired location; alternatively, the robot can approach the customer to enter a PIN and pick it up. Alibaba expects that G Plus will be fully operational by the end of this year.
In addition, Alibaba showed and other development — Cainiao box. Is Luggage storage, a person could establish, for example, the door of the apartment. The device is equipped with facial recognition technology — so the camera must be opened to carriers and customers.
