A hitchhiking robot has set out on a 3,870 mile journey that will see it travel across Canada relying solely on the kindness of human strangers.

HitchBOT, which began its epic voyage outside Halifax on Sunday, is undertaking the journey as part of a social experiment to see if it can arrive in one piece at an art gallery in Victoria, British Columbia.
