(RECODE.NET) – Florida became the fourth state in the country to pass a statewide law permitting the use of unmanned delivery robots on sidewalks and crosswalks.

Having a robot drive down a sidewalk without a human handler isn’t necessarily legal in most places.

But the new Florida law, which was signed by Governor Rick Scott Monday, allows for unmanned robots as long as a human can take over operation remotely in case something goes wrong.

The Florida law is similar to legislation finalized in Virginia, Idaho and Wisconsin earlier this year.

All of these state laws were passed with the support of Starship Technologies, a company that makes a rover designed to deliver packages, like food and retail items ordered online, directly to people’s doorsteps.
