Problem addressed

The delivery robot helps to reduce the demand for manpower in offices and shops, etc., and enhance the operational efficiency.

  • Deliverbot navigates via simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) with lidar and LSCM’s in-house trained deep-learning path planning policy, which enable it to smoothly pass through narrow paths with gateways and many moving obstacles.
  • Data is collected automatically using state- of-the-art navigation algorithms with minimal manual control data for training. Furthermore, an end-to-end training framework for leveraging the strengths of various algorithms has been developed.
  • Adopt content-based sensor fusion depth estimation for collision avoidance.
Key impact
  • Ease the shortage of resources and manpower
  • Improve productivity and efficiency
  • Help tackle the challenges of coordinating with a team of robots and performing point-to-point navigation in dynamic and complex environments such as airport and warehouse
