Piaggio Fast Forward is a new robotics company from the Piaggio Group, the corporation best known for the Vespa brand. Its first product bears some tangential resemblance to the famous scooters, albeit with a healthy portion of automation added in. Gita, Piaggio Fast Forward's first robot, is an automated cargo machine that can follow its owner and carry around their things.

Gita can hold up to 40 pounds of cargo, meaning that it can handle the majority of shipping tasks that the average individual would need. It can run fully automatically if maps are enabled, or otherwise it can follow its owner through the use of Bluetooth connectivity and sensors. The robot's orb-like shape gives it a zero-degree turning radius, meaning that it's nimble enough to follow pedestrians on sidewalks while still being fast enough to keep up with a bicycle.
