CoReorient Oy carries out a Smart City Robot Logistics project to test delivering of goods with robotic buses for selected consumers and organizations. The project will take place in Otaniemi Espoo in the autumn of 2017. The project is implemented with AIKO funding of the Uudenmaan liitto Regional Council and in cooperation with the Sohjoa project coordinated by the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences and Aalto Design Factory. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority HSY are also project partners of the level of research and communication.
The project a Sohjoa robot bus of Metropolia is tested for transportation of goods. The robot bus transports online purchases of selected consumer for a short distance in Otaniemi utilizing the Circular Economy Liiteri placed near the Aalto University’s metro station.
In the Robot Logistics project the aim is to learn how automated vehicles can influence the transportation of goods, the patterns of urban and consumer behavior and business operations. In addition, factors with possibilities to lower the amount of private car traffic and ease traffic jams with the help of robot logistics is investigated. The experiments take into account the technical constraints imposed on the use of automatic cars and consumers needs. The goal is to find new ways of operating that will lead to more sustainable business, environmental and social impacts.
The project also aims at a broad and open debate on the future of robot traffic. The first results of spring 2017. Draft report on consumer preparedness for interaction with transport drones:
