Something truly new has been seen on the streets of Los Angeles: GITA, the innovative creation by Piaggio Fast Forward, was in action as a mobile-carrier which “follows” its owner carrying their things and helping them with the chores of everyday life.
The innovative cargo-robot also hit it off with the Commissioner of Miami City, in Florida, Ken Russell (in the photos below), at a meeting on the theme of urban mobility.
Then in January GITA winged its way to Saudi Arabia, to the King Abdullah University (for the 2018 Winter Enrichment Program on the theme of “Human, Machine, Future”) and amazed everyone. School children also had fun with their teachers as they were “chased” by the stylish and colourful robot.
And GITA is also one of the finalists in the 2018 edition of the Interactive Innovation Awards, Smart Cities section, in Austin, Texas, promoted by SXSW.
