Autonomous driving technology company UISEE and the Guangdong Airport Authority have jointly unveiled a “Smart Logistics Laboratory” and the launch of an unmanned tractor project.
The project introduced five unmanned tractor models from UISEE, designed to replace manual transportation on the outbound business lines of domestic cargo terminals, as well as the inbound and outbound business lines of international cargo terminals. The firm is kicking off the pilot application of unmanned freight transportation for the first time at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport.
As part of this smart logistics project, the first batch of five unmanned tractors of UISEE will carry out the inbound and outbound cargo transportation of domestic and international goods, covering different indoor and outdoor working scenarios.
These unmanned tractors are built based on the U-Drive intelligent driving system produced by UISEE. The vehicles are equipped with various sensors including lidars, Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) and cameras, which can accurately sense a vehicle’s surroundings and intelligently detect various obstacles while driving. They can also complete automatic avoidance functions. In addition, they can realize key applications such as multi-vehicle cooperation and accurate parking.
In terms of real operation scenarios, the unmanned tractor can stop accurately in the cargo weighing area, and start autonomously and complete the whole process operation after the cargo is successfully weighed. When encountering the security gate, the unmanned tractor can line up autonomously, pass through and complete the remaining freight flow without human operation after the goods are inspected.
Founded in February 2016, UISEE focuses on the fields of large-scale travel and logistics, providing unmanned solutions for the industry and promoting technical revolution. At present, it cooperates with dozens of enterprises and has many applications across airports, factories, unmanned deliveries and unmanned buses.
