StreetDrone is deploying engineering excellence for full autonomy in urban and industrial environments – those places where adding low-speed autonomous vehicles improve services, safety and efficiency
Powered by some of the world’s most advanced software, deliveries are going autonomous.
At StreetDrone, we are at the forefront of autonomous technology developments, working with customers to understand how future technologies will influence the supply chain.
Our teleoperation function means that vehicles can be driven safely by remote operators, taking people out of operational environments and making entire vehicle fleets more efficient.
In fact, remote operation also means that vehicles can navigate complex situations, even when the autonomous software can’t cope!
Our driving robot is a sophisticated drive-by-wire system, designed specifically for autonomous vehicles, which allows the vehicle to be controlled by the computer.
We build all of our automotive safety features into the vehicles which take control from the computer should a system failure occur.
We’re on a journey to give businesses and people access to the benefits the autonomous vehicles bring in as short a time as possible.
That means starting with slow-moving autonomous delivery services, not the high-speed vehicles that are perhaps the stuff of fantasy.
We are currently deploying low-speed automation in controlled environments, on the electric Terberg YT203-EV at Nissan’s Sunderland car plant as part of a UK Government funded project, 5G CAL
The autonomous functionality is built both by the StreetDrone team and a network of partners which collaborate with Project Aslan, an open-source software design to accelerate the development of autonomous capability
To ensure that the 5G CAL project has safety at its core, all technology developments are tested both in simulation and in physical environments, including on Nissan’s own Sunderland test track.
The Terberg autonomous truck connects to, or integrates with technology from partners such as Nokia (5G), Hitachi (connected infrastructure and predictive analytics) and Voysys (teleoperation software)
