One of the delivery bots was put on display for global transport bosses at a summit in Barcelona, Spain.
Dignitaries at the exhibition were told how the small Road and Transport Authority vehicles navigate roads while delivering orders from Dubai malls to homes in pilot areas.
A three-month trial that started in February proved successful, with the robots now running a regular service in selected communities.
Sergei Kirillov from Self Driving Group, which made the vehicle’s robotics, said the plan was to expand the project into more areas.
“The next stage is to get more vendors on board. Currently, we are making 100 deliveries per week and we want to expand more,” Mr Kirillov told The National.
He said the robots were perfectly suited for more remote areas where couriers might be unwilling to ride for a single job.
The A-307 robot toured the halls of the Barcelona summit, where industry bosses were looking to the future of self-driving transport.
It was shown to Saudi transport boss Khalid Alhogail, the outgoing president of the International Association of Public Transport, and the body’s Tunisian secretary-general Mohamed Mezghani.
Data from the trial showed the Dubai robot ran autonomously 97 per cent of the time, with humans stepping in when the pavement was blocked.
A team to fix a faulty robot can be sent if needed, but this has not been required so far.
The device runs on pavements but can handle thousands of road crossings every day and navigate cars and motorcycles, said Mr Kirillov.
“The system is very advanced because originally it was developed for managing self-driving cars on roads at high speeds,” he said.
“Then we just moved this system into a smaller body, which probably makes the robot the most advanced delivery robot that actually exists.”
Mattar Al Tayer, the RTA’s director general and chairman, said Dubai had a “vision of being the world leader in seamless and sustainable mobility”.
“Let us continue to work together to create a cleaner, safer and sustainable future for ourselves and future generations,” he told delegates at the summit's opening ceremony.
