At King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) a pilot of last-mile autonomous delivery has started Texbotics and Alsheruk Express. The project aims to design and build an affordable autonomous delivery vehicle for last mile delivery for e-commerce delivery with the support of the National Digital Unit (NDU) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Hong Kong, May 18, 2022 (Globe Newswire) – Teksbotics is a Hong Kong-based autonomous driving solutions provider. The company helps its customers automate their transportation, delivery and patrol work. In this project, Teksbotics is partnering with its Saudi logistics partner – Alsharuk Express, one of the last mile delivery companies Amazon.com and Noon.com are serving.
In this pilot project, a purpose-built last-mile delivery vehicle (UNO commuter) was designed and developed by Texbotics according to the requirements collected in Saudi Arabia. The autonomous vehicle is equipped with mechanical leader, semi-solid state leader, camera, DGPS and on-board driving control unit. It provides daily last-mile delivery service from KAUST’s Campus Mail Room to the residential area of KAUST Island.
“This project will allow us to better understand how residents respond to autonomous delivery and what the user experience and acceptance will be,” Ahmed Khanfar, CEO of Alsharuk Express, said in a statement. “We look forward to seeing how autonomous delivery can work with Alshruk to meet the needs of our company and our customers.”
