Intel on Monday said it is supplying self-driving systems to Silicon Valley startup Udelv, which plans to have a fleet of autonomous delivery vehicles in action within two years. Udelv and the Mobileye unit at Intel aim to produce more than 35,000 driverless “Transporters” by the year 2028. Operations will begin commercially by 2023.
Udelv automated delivery vehicles combine self-driving technology with robotics to assist with unloading cargo. The company said it has made thousands of automated deliveries in the US, carrying payloads of more than 800 pounds (363 kilograms).
