A robot postman in Cremona
A first for Cremona. For the first time, the autonomously driven electric vehicle designed for urban delivery and made entirely in Italy, is ready to hit the streets. YAPE, Your Autonomous Pony Express, is a compact robot which moves on two wheels powered by autonomous electric motors. Thanks to sensors and video cameras it is able travel on pavements and cycle lanes to deliver packages of up to 70 kilograms in weight.
Now YAPE is starting its second phase, trials on the open road. In the next two months, thanks to the partnership between the local government of Cremona and CRIT – the Centre for Digital Innovation of Cremona, the historical centre of the Lombard city will play host to all the delivery trials that will allow the electric pony express to refine its self-driving skills in total safety. The tests, launched thanks to the approval of the local government and the municipal police, will lead YAPE to provide delivery services supporting local commerce and reducing CO2 emissions.
