We first talked about Delivers.ai last September, it has now emerged as a domestic initiative that develops autonomous delivery robots. Delivers.ai, which received an investment of close to ₺20 million in October, announced that it performed its first autonomous driving trials.
As a reminder, Delivers.ai aims to make local delivery faster and more cost-effective by serving online food ordering platforms and restaurants. According to the information shared, the first autonomous driving trial took place in the vicinity of the Kolektif House Maslak location with a diameter of 1.6 km.
According to the information provided by Delivers.ai, 100 trial deliveries were made in the first week and 99% success was achieved. According to the information we have received, Delivers.ai’s first pilot studies will be carried out with HepsiJET at the ITU ARI Teknokent Maslak campus.
In the first place, relatively small packages such as books, smartphones, or tablets are aimed to be transported within the campus. In the first quarter of 2021, the first rides will take place at Maslak, Atasehir, and Bagdat Caddesi locations with the brands Paket Mutfak, Scotty, Mealbox, PackUpp, and Dobby.
Let’s add that Delivers.ai will also start delivery with autonomous robots in TOSB (Automotive Supply Industry Specialized Organized Industrial Zone). Delivers.ai, which meets with the management authorities directly for university campuses and industrial zones and obtains the necessary permissions, aims to use its robots by using the e-scooter legislation on the municipal side.
Delivers.ai, which will complete the mechanical and technological developments by eliminating the deficiencies in the first product, plans to implement the new commercial delivery robot in the second quarter of 2021. The initiative, which aims to deliver with 10 robots in the first stage, will then deliver with 100 robots in the first year and 1000 robots in the second year.
