The Transporter's core innovation is its adaptive shelving space -
along with unique design engineering and software throughout.
have one of the best, if not the world's best, teleoperation
system, " he asserted, " which is entirely proprietary with
one of the lowest latencies: about 105-millisecond glassto-glass
at 2,500 miles distance. "
It's designed with dynamic bitrate management
and in-house load balancing algorithms that interlink
multiple cellular services. The remote drivers aren't
steering or generating throttle and brake commands
but instead employing so-called decision primitives.
" You just have to tell the vehicle to end up in a certain
place, and it figures out the rest, " Patel said.
Custom ECU, algorithms
The same remote strategy is applied to the cargo
space. If a customer can't figure out the mobile app,
the teleoperator can remotely open the cargo space for
them. The system is modularized so that the pod (the
3,000-lb. (1361-kg) dynamic and connected intelligent
locker) is interchangeable between Udelv skateboards.
But unlike traditional flat electric-vehicle skateboards,
the Udelv skateboard has tall pillars on both ends. The
pillars measure about two meters (6.5 ft.) high. There
is a traffic-light detection camera and telecommunication
antennas on the top of each pillar.
" Companies usually show a flat skateboard about
two feet off the ground and tell everybody this is going
to be their autonomous skateboard, " Laury said. " But
nobody thinks about where sensors are going. The
longer the vehicle, the higher the sensors need to be
because you need to see around. And if you have the
long footprint of a Ford Transit like this one, you want
to have your sensors placed high. "
The skateboard also can travel without the pod,

allowing Udelv customers to carry items such as heavy
equipment or stacks of covered pallets that can be
exposed to the elements. If the 3,000-lb. pod is put aside,
