The robots can run at up to 15 kilometers per hour, thus covering a wide service area. The operator of the robots told ThePaper.cn that even though it’s hard for these machines to work every day due to the workload differences and maintenance requirements, they will be running on a regular basis.

The robots can automatically park at their delivery address, and are even able to avoid barriers and wait for traffic signals.

Users can get their orders by using the robot's facial recognition feature, scanning the QR code or using the link in JD’s mobile app. The robots have largely reduced the number of working staff and improved operation efficiency.
