I have been inundated literally by a flurry of email/Linkedin requests from Amazon recruiters for this what they say exciting new product team .
To me seems just warehouse automation e.g. Packing and Delivery of boxes .
Is that it or it involves other applications like drones or self driving cars ?
I know how recruiters like to lure you in ideas ....

    That's essentially the team behind kiva systems and most warehouse automation. Not sure if they have expanded to other areas since I was there.

      If it is a new team they will be very secretive.

    It's Amazon. They are looking at everything. Robots in the home, office, warehouse, store, hospital, outdoors, etc. Who knows where it goes - including you if you don't check it out.
