The Future of Final Mile Delivery Lands at TU-Automotive's Connected Fleets Europe Conference & Exhibition

TU-Automotive has announced that the worlds first autonomous land based delivery drone created by Starship Technologies will be coming to this years Connected Fleets Europe Conference & Exhibition (Amsterdam, 19th-20th April).

TU-Automotive has announced that the worlds first autonomous land based delivery drone created by Starship Technologies will be coming to this years Connected Fleets Europe Conference & Exhibition (Amsterdam, 19th-20th April).

The brainchild from the co-founders of Skype, Starship represents the latest incarnation of the delivery vehicle. The companys COO, Allan Martinson, will be taking to the stage at this years Connected Fleets Europe Conference & Exhibition this April to address how autonomous drones will fit into the future fleet ecosystem.
"Starship has developed a unique autonomous six-wheeled device that rolls on the sidewalks, is capable of navigation with 1-inch precision and behaves in most aspects as another pedestrian," said Allan Martinson, COO at Starship Technologies.
He went on to say, "the delivery robots can open a whole spectrum of new business models, from the explosion of the rental economy, more efficient food delivery and the roll out of e-groceries and much more besides."
Jamie Muir, project director at TU-Automotive commented that, "the inclusion of Starship Technologies in this years Connected Fleets Europe agenda highlights the changing dynamic of the fleet industry. We look forward to seeing this latest technological innovation in action in Amsterdam this April."
Joining Starship Technologies on the speaker line-up will be experts from Daimler, IBM, Arval, Continental and Hertz amongst 20+ others. See the full agenda and speaker line-up on the website: http://www.tu-auto.com/fleeteurope/

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
