This innovation is equipped with an advanced sensor suite. Through the technologies of deep learning and sensor fusion, MiniMover is capable of planning suitable path with collision avoidance of obstacles in crowded and dynamic environment. Moreover, Minimover can take lift rides and pass-through doorways autonomously to carry out short-path delivery mission.
The system can address the severe shortage in human labour, handle complicated tasks that required round-the-clock processing, reduce human errors, and lower the risk of pandemic outbreak due to human contact.
