THINK competition from a delivery drone is a flight of fancy, all up in the air?
Well with autonomous vehicles from shuttles to convoy trucks hitting the roads, this could be the next challenger.
The wraps come off the first autonomous land-based delivery drone at next month’s Connect Fleets Europe conference organised by TU-Automotive.
The delivery drone is a small six-wheeled vehicle, capable of precision autonomous driving of within 1 inch (2.54 cm) error. It has potential for almost any business that needs small and medium parcel delivery, including food and drinks and small packages.
The vehicle can be tracked using a dedicated app and travels at a top speed of 4mph (6.4 km/h) with a range of two miles (3.2 km). Maximum carrying weight is 40lbs (18.1 kg) and it uses a radar and a video camera for navigation.
The TU-Automotive Connected Fleets Europe Conference & Exhibition will be hosted in Amsterdam in The Netherlands, between April 19 and 20.
