    Vans & Robots – small delivery robots out of the Sprinter

    Published on Sep 8, 2017

    Actually, everything looks normal: Employees of the Daimler plant in Stuttgart-Untertürkheim are pouring out to the campus, enjoying their lunch break. But today a stranger is among their midst – 6D63, a small delivery robot. Its mission is to revolutionize logistics on the last mile. Behind this is a joint project by Mercedes-Benz Vans and Starship Technologies: A modified Sprinter model holding up to eight delivery robots capable of delivering parcels independently. This means a substantial increase in efficiency, not only for the delivery company, but also for customers because they will be able to decide exactly when and where they want to receive their parcel. Thanks to Mercedes-Benz, delivery robots like the 6D63 could soon become part of our everyday life.

By combining vans as mobile landing platforms and drones as deliverer, it can be possible to achieve an order within only one day. This unique concept is being tested in Zurich to detect its’ efficiency and acceptance by customers.
