(CNN) - A new cargo robot may help you with your grocery shopping. In fact, you could call the "Gita" a perfect shopping partner.

It's designed to schlep your groceries and other items from the store or the office. But if everything goes as planned, it should also be able to go on its own to pick up your merchandise while you stay at home. 

The robot was developed by a Boston start-up company and run by the Italian company that makes Vespa Scooters. 

The Gita is expected to go into production next year.
