Autonomous Vehicle Engineering - April 2022 - 4

Cover Story
Lockered and
Loaded
by Bradley Berman
With its innovative Transporter, AV startup Udelv rethinks the
entire concept of parcel delivery.
For most of its history, the autonomous-vehicle
industry has focused on passenger transport, attempting
to replace humans behind the wheel with a digital
" driver. " The bulk of the industry's engineering resources
continues to be aimed at core driving functions, such
as perception, controls and localization. But this nearly
singular focus on robotic taxi drivers ignores countless
opportunities to automate other types of vehicle
operators, most notably the e-commerce delivery person
who recently left a package at your front door.
The startup Udelv was founded in late 2016 to
address that use case. Based in Burlingame, Calif., the
company's engineering work began in March 2017.
Udelv knows its delivery trucks need to traverse
highways and byways safely, but that's a secondary
function. Its raison d'etre is to automate the tasks
Udelv's fresh approach to cargo-vehicle packaging is uncovered when the Transporter's side panels open. The prototype shown was built at
Roush Industries in Michigan.
