It's a robot that really delivers!

From pizzas to packages, it can do a lot, and now it is also helping to deliver more innovation to the Hoosier state

Roxo is FedEx's same-day bot, and it's hoping to cover new ground, making deliveries in record time.

It's been around some US markets since 2019

It's already been a big success on Purdue's campus, now Representative Holli sullivan wants to expand efforts.

It aims to help ease the burden on the delivery workers amid a rise in online shopping, while cutting down on face-to-face interactions.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
