Amazon developed the Amazon Scout to help get packages to customers using autonomous delivery services. In January of 2019, the delivery devices started testing in a neighborhood in Snohomish County, Washington. 
    Amazon customers order products as normal, and packages are delivered by a trusted partner or Amazon Scout. Since the initial pilot, Scout now delivers to four locations in the U.S. 

In July 2021, Amazon announced the launch of a new development center in Helsinki, Finland, to help develop autonomous technology. The new team will consist of over two dozen engineers in Helsinki to start and will be dedicated to research and development for Amazon Scout, Amazon’s fully electric autonomous delivery service that currently operates in the U.S.
