The new autonomous delivery car wants to send to the whole store

Fully autonomous vehicles will not soon become a mainstream reality. However, they have the power to change the lives of many people when they come. These technologies can provide mobility to people who have struggled to get it before, and it’s a good thing. But technology will also embrace more mundane aspects of everyday life, such as package delivery.

The latest effort in this space comes from Udelv, a California company founded in 2017 that seeks to revolutionize the logistics industry. The company unveiled its transporter autonomous electric delivery car at this year’s CES, which could hit the road within next year. This is the third generation of the car that started developing in 2018 as the first autonomous delivery car on the roads of California.

The transporter, which has a modular cargo space called the Upod, can carry cargo up to 2,000 pounds (907 kilograms) and make up to 80 stops per run. It can deliver many products including groceries, e-commerce packages, medical supplies and much more. It can reach up to 70 miles per hour with a wide electric range of 160 to 300 miles (257 to 482 kilometers) with a 90 or 160-kilowatt-hour battery. DC fast charging can add up to 220 miles in 45 minutes.

Udelv Transporter uses Camera, LiDAR and Radar Mobileye Drive suite. It also has Udelv’s camera-based teleoperation system that allows for remote tactics. Udelv also connects the transporter’s uPod with a proprietary software system for “intelligent loading and unloading”, as well as the ability to return an item to a customer.

The company plans to deploy the first transporter in 2023, with the goal of reaching 50,000 autonomous delivery vehicles on public roads by 2028. Udelv says it has more than 1,000 reservations for the AV and the company has recently been awarded a contract with US Air. Ball for a pilot program.

Yes, it would be annoying to walk in the delivery truck to get your package, but there are multiple companies – Ahem, Hyundai – The evolving robot that will bring it to your door. It is not a question of whether this will happen, but when.
