We’re going undercover to discover how technology helps deliver all those Christmas presents.
Did you know that the Royal Mail handles 8 billion letters and 5 billion parcels every year? That’s a lot of mail!
Engineers use high-tech tools like optical recognition systems, barcodes, and robots to sort and deliver mail efficiently.
Lloydie and Becky also talk about how posties, the delivery workers, are like “occupational athletes” because they walk a lot.
Engineers design special uniforms and use technology to make their jobs safer and more comfortable. The podcast even explores the history of postal uniforms from the fancy top hats to the practical and comfy outfits posties wear today.
And guess what? In the future, artificial intelligence, drones, and robots might play an even bigger role in delivering mail! There’s talk about drones delivering mail to hard-to-reach places, and even robots helping out. Exciting, right?Add a comment
