Project details

Lextan offers Autopod, an electric, semi-autonomous vehicle dedicated to delivering merchandise in urban areas. Its autopilot can manage simple routes in environments created for it. In complex situations, a remote operator takes control so as to best drive the vehicle. Also, the visual and audio presence of the operator is reproduced on board the Autopod so it can interact naturally with people near the vehicle. In this way, the operator can manage a large number of driving operations for a fleet of Autopods, spread out over a large area, all while maintaining interactions with other users of the road.
