After working in secret for more than three years, AEV Robotics is now ready to showcase their modular vehicle system (MVS) on the international stage.
The United Nations predicts that 68% of the the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050, which would equate to more than 6.5 billion people.
AEV Robotics CEO, Julian Broadbent, believes there is an urgent need to rethink the way we move people, deliver goods and address on demand markets in cities.
“Instead of adding technology to upgrade traditional cars, we’ve started from a clean sheet and built a completely new vehicle,” Mr Broadbent said.
The foundation of every MVS is a robotic base. Digitally controlled via a programmable interface, each base is lightweight, electric, four wheel steer and multidirectional.
Connected with the robotic base are functional pods. The pods are engineered to meet the needs of businesses, city planners and fleet managers. They can be selected from an existing range, or designed to specific requirements.
AEV Robotics will offer developer level access to the programmable interface in 2019. This will support service providers to open new markets, commercialize leading edge technology and drive social change in cities.
