Dispatch - Carry
Dispatch is creating a platform for local delivery powered by a fleet of autonomous vehicles designed for sidewalks and pedestrian spaces.
Our cities are changing. We use our smartphones to summon everything from rides to groceries. Self-driving vehicles are becoming a reality and will be commonplace in the near future. Yet, delivery remains a challenge with no convenient, affordable, and simple solution. A fleet of autonomous delivery vehicles paves a clear path toward such a solution, and promises savings of time and money for both consumers and businesses.
The self-driving technology required for such an autonomous delivery fleet is at an inflection point. Companies like Google, Tesla, and Cruise prove this with their rapid advances, and show us that the advent of autonomous vehicles is inevitable. Artificial intelligence has advanced significantly, and now is the time to develop a fleet of autonomous delivery vehicles.
Our vehicle, nicknamed Carry, travels on sidewalks and brings you your deliveries. At about three feet long and tall, and as wide as a person standing, Carry travels at walking speeds (up to 4 miles per hour) and safely navigates pedestrian walkways. Carry has multiple compartments, allowing it to complete several deliveries per trip. Once en-route, users can track their delivery and upon arrival receive a notification. Users unlock the vehicle with their phones, grab their items, and Carry is off to its next delivery.
We are currently piloting on two college campuses in California: Menlo College and CSU Monterey Bay. In the near future, Carry will work as part of our network of autonomous vehicles, built to bring things to people across cities and campuses in the most simple and convenient way possible.
