MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – The FedEx same-day bot made a delivery to city hall Wednesday morning to meet Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland.

FedEx officials also gave an update on how the prototype testing is going in the Bluff City.

Roxo is in its second week of testing in Memphis and three other cities in the country. Right now officials are making sure the system is working correctly and staying on the roads and sidewalks and being a good fellow pedestrian.

Mayor Strickland says the robot paired with the state’s 2-year free education will help Memphis become a leading technological city.
