TARS - The Self Driving Delivery Robot

Our autonomous robots are built to solve the last mile delivery problem. We are the first outdoor autonomous robotics startup in Southeast Asia and also the first in the world to provide a fully autonomous last mile delivery solution combining safe-drop and robots. We consider ourselves “ first mover in ASEAN deep tech development”.

 

TARS robot travels up to 40km from a single charge with a normal payload of 20-25kg. 

 

GOAL: Reducing The Delivery Cost to $1

 

Chances are that robots will assist and help in the next following years on boring repetitive delivery tasks. They are replacing humans and vehicles that may be doing those last one or two miles with autonomous robots. Our final goal is to reduce the delivery fee to $1.

 

Working 24/7 ? TARS won't be complaining.

 

Robots can be arranged by an intelligent systems with written algorithms which can effectively deploy the nearest robot to deliver anytime and the robot will unload into the secured safe box no matter how late the consumers come back, they will still get the delivery.

FEATURES OF TARS

Self-Driving

 

TARS will follow traffic rules and have more accurate delivery time without affected by any weather conditions. Curbside delivery saw a major uptick in recent years. It can bring items from the malls to the parking lots or from outside merchants to inside. It’s designed to work seamlessly for indoor and outdoor environment enable retailers and restaurants to deliver products more cost-effective and sustainable. Merchants can leverage their physical store networks to provide a competitive advantage compared to current delivery mode.

All Weather-Proof

 

TARS navigates the sidewalks, pathways or any dedicated roads to deliver the items from restaurants and stores to doorsteps. With a customizable large compartment design, TARS can deliver more items per trip which is a significant advantage. TARS also delivers anytime of the day and navigate complex crowded areas for urban and suburbs under different weather conditions.

Sensing Ability

 

With TARS’ self-driving capabilities, it can provide deliveries in dynamic and time sensitive areas. TARS is able to conduct deliveries outdoors and indoors due to its contextual mobility navigation and sensory systems. Both LiDAR and camera systems to adopt the real world environment.

Management System

 

No matter where TARS’ go, they are always traceable and maintainable based on the fleet management design. The systems also include online ordering and tracking for end users.

Automatic Loading

 

To solve the entire last mile delivery issue, only the robots may not be able to automate the entire process. TARS can connect to the parcel lockers for automatic loading with self docking feature.

Wireless Charging

 

Not only that, TARS can also provide fast wireless charging to complete the charging process within 2 hours to increase the efficiency of robotic fleet.

HOW DOES TARS WORK?

Vector Files - How it Works PNG-01.png

1. The user places their desired order in their mobile devices

2. TARS proceeds to receive the order for delivery

3. TARS then proceeds autonomously for delivery

4. The user is notified via their mobile devices upon arrival of TARS

5. The user is then required to scan the QR code via TARS's rear cameras to access the storage

3D 16- Channel LiDAR

Stereo Camera

Waterproof Sonar Sensors

GPS + IMU

With our LiDAR as the main sensor, it will be  able to provide L3 autonomous driving and  obstacles avoidance abilities after mapping the environment for delivery coverage and it’s customized and updated for commercialized delivery robots in outdoor scenarios from day to night. The stereo camera on TARS will be able to triangulate  the distance between TARS and obstacles/human to avoid collision.

GPS allows TARS to locate itself in  a global map and with the help of  IMU, TARS will be able to locate  when the GPS signal is weak. The  LiDAR point cloud matching  algorithm also works with GPS and  IMU to provide a more accurate  position within the map while  autonomous navigation mode is on.

Sonar sensors can detect the dead  range of the LiDAR and stereo  camera to provide the estimated  distance value in shorter range to  avoid collision as well.

Rear Tail Lamps

Light Pole

Will be powered on during night hours  for vehicles or people behind to notify  the existing of TARS robot along with  LED light pole.

LED Indicators & Rear Turn Signals

USB Cameras

Low latency live streaming video to capture unusual activities during the process of delivery to prevent thefts, vandalism and take control quickly in tele operation mode This will also be used for autodocking wireless charging or automatic loading.

Sonar Sensors & Alarm

High-pitched sound alarm to  alert people around and send  the signal to control center  when sonar sensors detected  TARS is being lifted.

LEDs will blink, ON and OFF to display  the status of turning signals on TARS to  inform people around.
