Descrizione del progetto

Uno sguardo al futuro della consegna dei pacchi

L’ultimo miglio è la fase più importante nel processo di consegna a domicilio del commercio elettronico. Tuttavia, nonostante i continui miglioramenti apportati ai servizi di trasporto, il panorama attuale rimane problematico. Consegne non riuscite, articoli danneggiati, costi insostenibili per la consegna, congestione del traffico e inquinamento sono alcuni dei problemi che colpiscono i consumatori finali, le imprese, la società e l’ambiente. L’obiettivo del progetto ELIPORT, finanziato dall’UE, è offrire un sistema intelligente di soluzioni alle attuali sfide di consegna dell’ultimo miglio. Il progetto escluderà qualsiasi intervento umano introducendo una flotta di robot autonomi a terra che viaggeranno tra il punto di raccolta e il punto di consegna, automatizzando di conseguenza il processo di raccolta.

Obiettivo

Despite rapid advancements in the way that we receive packages, current last mile delivery solutions are still antiquated in comparison to the technology that has been deployed in other sectors of the industry. This causes PROBLEMS: for end consumers (failed deliveries, damaged items), for businesses (unsustainable costs for delivery) and for society and the environment (traffic congestion, pollution).

To solve this, Eliport is creating a fleet of AUTONOMOUS ground-based ROBOTS. They will travel in pedestrian spaces in order to cover the distance between the pick-up point (e.g final logistics point) and the drop-off point (e.g the customer’s home). The robot will be intelligent because software will allow it to do its delivery duties, orient in the environment and be a smart participant in human traffic.

We are also developing a delivery receptacle. This trunk or gate system will be installed at/in customer’s premises and will only be accessible to Eliport autonomous robots, the intended recipient of the delivery or somebody with a unique code for each trunk/gate (e.g courier, mailman). With this PATENT-PENDING delivery system we are aiming to completely remove the human from the delivery process.

The ELIPORT system has many different potential use cases that vary in technical difficulty: limited open environments such as gated communities, closed industrial environments like warehouses and factories, public industrial environments such as airports and hospitals and finally fully open environments like typical suburban or urban residences. The first target market will be gated-communities in the EU and USA that contain primary residences.

The feasibility will determines three key requirements for further project execution: i) if the market conditions favor ELIPORT, ii) if the solution has reached the maturity needed to proceed to further product development and iii) if the company has the necessary resources to move on to the next phase.
