Reminiscent of Star Wars R2-D2, the two-wheeled machine called Gita can track its owner and roll along behind them, carrying their items inside its storage bucket, which is opened by flipping the top open.

It has a zero turning radius and top speed of 22 mph, so can keep up whether its owner is on foot or on bike, while carrying 40lbs worth of goods.

The electronically powered droid is also capable of operating autonomously in a mapped environment, making it able to perform deliveries and pick-ups on its own.

Jeffrey Schnapp, Chief Executive Officer of Piaggio Fast Forward, said: Think about how much more freely you would be able to move from one point to another if lugging cumbersome items was removed from the equation.

Gita frees up the human hand to focus on complex and creative everyday tasks by taking over mundane transportation chores.

He added:You can also send your Gita off on missions while you are busy doing something more pressing.

The robot is designed to match the full range of human mobility, with speeds that extend from a crawl to a sprint.

It also operates inside and out, on pavements and streets, just like a person.
