WOULD YOU TRUST A ROBOT POSTIE?

Australia Post are trialing ground based drones (or robots) to deliver your parcels.

Affectionately known as Billy The Box, this wheeled, secure parcel locker could be coming to your front door soon next time you order up on eBay. Registered Parcel Post customers will be able to register a time that they are home, and Billy will SMS you on approach with a code to unlock the box and retrieve your parcel.
The wheeled drone can dodge obstacles, handle nearly any terrain and uses GPS to locate your property.
Whilst this actually sounds pretty cool, do you think technology has come far enough to absolutely trust it to do the job? And I can't help feeling that this will add more human workers to the job search roundabout.
