Estonian parcel locker manufacturer Cleveron has developed a new self-driving delivery robot, designed to automate the last mile by depositing parcels at compatible lockers.
The vehicle is loaded with parcels at the depot before traveling autonomously to predesignated locations where the drone pulls up alongside the compatible parcel locker and deposits the package inside using a robotic arm. The entire process is undertaken autonomously, which means that recipients don’t need to be in to receive their parcels. The recipient then receives a notification on their smartphone saying the package has arrived.
