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 SEA/Malaysia 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.

Autonomous Self-Driving for Outdoor Scenarios

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.

Mobile Base Design for

Complex Outdoor Environments

With the TARS base design it can drive on uneven surfaces in 90% of outdoor scenarios. Wheel-hub motor is an electric motor that is incorporated into the hub of a wheel and drives it directly. It’s not only simplifying the mechanism design of TARS base but also allowing TARS to develop more feature.

It is more efficient and longer-lasting than brushed motor systems which makes TARS design very modular in terms of the payload and velocity control of the mobile base.

Fail-Safe Systems for Safety

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

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.

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

HWR-Box

Automatic Storage Box for TARS Delivery Robot

The port is designed specifically for TARS to dock, slide and open HWR-Box to start unloading the parcel inside and close it when it’s finished.

The box will only be unlocked when end-users are scanning the QR or entering passcode on APP.

The port is designed specifically for TARS to dock, slide and open HWR-Box to start unloading the parcel inside and close it when it’s finished.

The sensors on both sides of TARS and HWR-Box to make sure they get connected wirelessly in order to start QR code detection process to make sure TARS is nearby HWR-Box before self docking.
