US10216188B2 - Autonomous ground vehicles based at delivery locations - Google Patents
Amazon patent for a UGV that stays at your home/apartment complex and goes out to cargo truck retrieve packages when it rolls by. As opposed to FedEx, where their UGV rolls from the truck to your door.

Delivering the Future: FedEx Unveils Autonomous Delivery Robot
DEKA designed ibot chassis derivative parcel delivery bot, which suggests it's got some Segway self-balancing tech in there for obstacle clearance, and perhaps stair climbing? As opposed to the recent Amazon patent, where they have a UGV based in your home, that goes out to meet the large cargo truck to retrieve packages.

Looks like the low slung Steinwinter tractor-trailer, featured in the Highwayman TV series in the 80's...

It's an interesting retrofit solution for the existing 5-th wheel trailer fleet, though I would have expected a better windbreak in front of the trailer front end.

Biobot: Innovative Offloading of Astronauts | NASA
having a "rover" with a long term ECLSS pack you can jack into that follows you along, say something like a Boston Dynamics BigDog, would work alright, but then you get to the problem of what sort of bare minimum ECLSS system must exist aboard the spacesuit?

Okay, this seems like an actual improvement over Amazon's Kiva whole shelf moving UGV's. Using the drones as both UGV's carrying single trays as well as elevator pickers to pull from dense/high tray stacks means you can multiplex tray picking from the stacks, rather than the typical separate elevator picker bot permanently mounted on the shelves.

Hexapod Hexcopter
Interesting proof of concept for a walking/flying hybrid drone. Next step is on the fly splitting/joining of the two main parts, so you can have either an ad-hoc hybrid heterogeneous drone, or in the more general case a UAV/UGV hybrid that can do autonomous launch/recovery of ground assets.
