Futuristic delivery concept developed by Israeli student

LinkedIn +

A former student at Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art in Israel has developed a thought-provoking concept for the future of parcel deliveries with the Transwheel autonomous vehicle.

Kobi Shikar developed the Transwheel as part of a final project at Shenkar College. It is an autonomous robotic wheel with a self-balancing system similar to that of a Segway. The Transwheel has robotic arms to help it transport a range of loads from small packages to larger bulk shipments, and its GPS functionality means it can operate autonomously or as part of a group.

Although the Transwheel is merely a concept at this stage, the project has generated a lot of interest worldwide at a time when autonomous delivery via drones is a key topic.
