There is a delivery locker in the apartment, and the delivery locker will receive your parcels when you are not home. Carrying heavy and many items from this delivery locker to your home can be especially difficult if you live in a large or tower apartment. The robot will automatically take it out of the delivery locker and deliver it to your home. We will help transport everyone.
By connecting (1) the app, (2) parcel lockers, (3) orthogonal robots, (4) transport robots, and (5) elevators, we provide a service that allows for the easy retrieval of parcels stored in the parcel lockers. Each system is interconnected using IoT, enabling actions like (1) calling, (2) storing, (3) retrieving, (4) transporting, and (5) calling for delivery. Additionally, the transport robots can also provide parcel placement in designated delivery spots located in front of each residence. This ensures delivery even when the recipient is not present. You can choose whether to receive parcels directly from the robots or have them left in front of your home.

<Comments from the Good Design Award Jury>
The society is often described as "super-aging," with a growing number of elderly people living alone in urban apartment buildings. Furthermore, the practice of ordering various products for home delivery has become commonplace. In places where the convenience of having various people involved in deliveries with easy access to residential buildings is emphasized, it can be problematic from a security standpoint. In addition, many of these deliveries consist of heavy items such as essential supplies and stockpiled goods, making it difficult for individuals with physical limitations or the elderly to transport these items. The introduction of robots to address these security concerns and reduce the burden of carrying heavy loads is commendable.
