没男朋友拎包?让滚滚帮你拿!

2017-02-17    来源:fastcoexit    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

没车,没男朋友,却还是想上街剁手?让滚滚帮你拿!波士顿一家公司发明了可以带着货跟你一起回家的机器人,跟普特君科技板块看看吧!

On a walk or bike ride home from the grocery store, a new robot is designed to carry your groceries. Following a few feet behind, it can navigate a crowded urban sidewalk while you walk unencumbered. Once you teach it the route, it can also go back to the store on its own.
从食品店走路或者骑车回家时,一种新型的机器人能够帮你拎货物。它能够在拥挤的城市人行道上行走,跟在你身后并保持几英尺的距离,你就没负担啦。如果你把回家的路线教给它,它就能自己回家了。
 




The cargo bot, called Gita, is in development at the Boston offices of Piaggio Fast Forward, the American offshoot of Piaggio, the Italian company best known for making the Vespa. If the Vespa was a postwar innovation, created to navigate bombed-out Italian streets more nimbly than a car, the Gita is the company's take on 21st-century mobility.
这款名为Gita的货运机器人由波士顿的Piaggio Fast Forward办公室研发,它是以Vespa机车而闻名的意大利Piaggio公司在美国的分公司。如果Vespa机车这种战后发明是为了比汽车穿梭在被炸毁的意大利街道更灵活而创造出来的话,那么Gita就是该公司在21世纪交通工具市场的收入啦。

"We're focused on this issue of occupying and being able to navigate boundary lines and spaces that are not available to automobiles—namely sidewalks, civic spaces, and being able to move across indoor and outdoor thresholds," Jeffrey Schnapp, CEO of Piaggio Fast Forward, tells Co.Exist.
“我们关注使用以及探索非机动车行驶的地方及其边界线,这些地方由人行道以及出入建筑的门槛构成,”Piaggio Fast Forward的CEOJeffrey Schnapp对Co.Exist的记者说道。

For people who own cars, the Gita is designed to make walking a more appealing option. "One consideration was really: 'What is the threshold at which we stop walking places?" he says. "When do people typically decide this is too much weight, or too burdensome or cumbersome an object for me to carry, and I'm going to get in the car . . . we did a lot of research on this and we came to the conclusion that there really are some clear thresholds in that regard."
对于拥有汽车的人们而言,Gita能够让走路成为一个更有吸引力的选项。“有一个考虑是很现实的:‘我们无法行走的地方的界限是什么?’”他说。”人们什么时候会觉得这个机器人太重了,或者对我来说带上它效率太低,是个大负担,然后准备用汽车装货……我们对此做了很多调查,并得出这样的结论:这些问题确实存在一个清晰的门槛。“
