AFK Robotics is at the forefront of designing and developing cutting-edge self-driving vehicles, pioneering innovative solutions in the fields of last-mile delivery and shuttle services. Our commitment to excellence is reflected in the diverse range of vehicles we have meticulously crafted, all built upon two robust infrastructure platforms. These platforms encompass the following four distinct vehicle types:
Mini Delivery Robot (Sidewalk):
Designed for efficient sidewalk navigation, our Mini Delivery Robot is engineered to provide seamless last-mile delivery services. This compact electric vehicle boasts an independent electric hub motor system on all four wheels and a unique suspension system for optimal performance.
Midi-Cargo Truck (Public Road):
Our Midi-Cargo Truck is a versatile solution for public road applications. This electric truck combines strength and durability, with a chassis constructed from a blend of lightweight yet resilient steel and carbon fiber materials. The integration of Lidar and camera systems enhances its navigation capabilities.
Multi-Stop Truck (Public Road):
Specifically designed for public road usage, the Multi-Stop Truck offers efficient and reliable transportation solutions. It features the same independent electric hub motor system as our other vehicles, ensuring consistent performance across the fleet.
Driverless Shuttle 4 Person (Circuit Road - Public Road):
Our Driverless Shuttle, capable of accommodating four passengers, is a fully electric, autonomous vehicle. It operates on circuit roads and public roads, adhering to the highest safety standards. The inclusion of advanced sensor and LIDAR systems further enhances passenger safety.
Our commitment to innovation extends to the realm of software development. The AFK Smart Control system represents the pinnacle of autonomous software architecture, boasting an L4 level of autonomy. Our deep learning-based software encompasses a broad range of features, including:
- Perception Software
- Localization Software
- Mapping and HD Maps
- Sensor Fusion
- Path Planning and Decision-Making
- Control Software Simulators
- Communication Software
- Cybersecurity Software
- Operating System
- Remote Monitoring and Control
- Data Management and Storage
- Regulatory and Compliance Software
- User Interface (UI)
- Human-Machine Interface (HMI)
- Testing and Validation Tools
Notably, our software allows for remote management of vehicle accessories and moving parts, further enhancing control and adaptability. The integration of the Global Positioning feature facilitates seamless communication within the AFK Smart Shipping system.
Our fleet management system comprises a minimum of six vehicles, a dedicated charging and maintenance station, and a central vehicle control station. To safeguard against potential internet outages, we have integrated a satellite communication system.
Our vehicles also benefit from an advanced communication system that facilitates real-time data sharing among vehicles. Even in cases of interrupted communication with the central management, our vehicles possess the capability to complete tasks autonomously, relying on the latest available data.
To ensure accessibility for users of all backgrounds, we have designed the AFK Smart Shipping system with a user-friendly and intuitive interface, complete with guidance features.
After rigorous software and simulation testing, we are set to initiate delivery operations in pilot regions, starting in March 2024. Initially, we will deploy six mini delivery robots, each capable of providing services within a one-mile radius. Our ambitious goal is to deploy 100,000 delivery robots across 12,800 regions by the end of 2027.
As we embark on this exciting journey, we will leverage the machine learning capabilities of our mini delivery robots to enhance the performance and capabilities of our broader vehicle fleet, catering to both B2B and B2C sectors. At AFK Robotics, we are committed to revolutionizing transportation and delivery solutions, one autonomous vehicle at a time.
