“Shonan HAKOBO” has been chosen as the name for Panasonic’s automatic delivery robot
3 21, 2021
Since November 2020 Panasonic Corporation has been conducting a demonstration experiment in Fujisawa SST of a residential area delivery service using an automatic delivery robot. The robot has become a familiar sight to both residents and other locals.
In order for the residents to feel closer to the robot, we invited suggestions for its name (its nickname in FSST) from them.
76 people submitted a total of 132 names, from which the nickname “Shonan HAKOBO” was chosen.
This name reflects our desire to provide a robot that continues to play an active role, carrying not only deliveries but also everyone’s dreams.
“Shonan HAKOBO” will continue to provide service every day in order to remain loved by the community.
Please look forward to further announcements regarding future services.
Note: HAKO means “delivery” in Japanese and BO means “roBOt”.
