AIDrivers and Largo Robotics have announced a collaboration agreement which will see AIDrivers grant use of its autonomous software stack to Largo Robotics.

This agreement will enable the incorporation and integration of this technology into Largo Robotics’ electric tow tractors for logistics applications.

The incorporation of the AIDrivers software will enhance the autonomous capabilities of the platform incorporating the key tools of V2X enabled fleet operator and digital twin to meet industry needs for sustainable automation.

AIDrivers’ Autonomous Intelligent Operating System (AIOS) includes precision 3D mapping and localisation, artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled perception with situation cognisance and responsive autonomous drive including a behavioural model of articulated vehicles for natural navigation.

This enables vehicles to navigate in mixed traffic within dynamic environments. The AIOS is powered by the AI-enabled fleet operator (AIFO) which provides a holistic view of autonomous operations for in-time operations.

The specialised V2X enabled AIFO is designed to improve the business operations, safety and productivity by delivering effective scheduling, efficient path planning and a self-aware environment with cognitive abilities via V2X for predictive mobility analytics and smarter environment perception.

The autonomous fleet operations and optimisation is supported by innovative phasic based digital twin (AISE).

AISE is an autonomous enabled integrated simulation platform based on a true 3D environment which provides a global map coordinate system with embedded autonomous agents providing a real-world environment experience. This enables the staging for seamless integration with zero down time deployment as well as be the backbone to test and optimise the operations.

The AIOS platform will be integrated to empower Largo Robotics electric tow tractor which has already achieved its CE compliance approval in Turkey.

Having successfully achieved proof of concept, a number of orders for these tow tractors have been received and the company is scaling up for production and delivery. The adoption and integration of the AIDrivers’ autonomous software stack will further improve the capabilities and safety of the Largo Robotics tow tractors.

Dr Rafiq Swash, CEO and Founder of AIDrivers, commented, “AIDrivers has developed industry leading autonomous software that enables vehicles to operate autonomously without any infrastructure change in a variety of environments and conditions.

“Whilst our initial focus has been in larger and heavy vehicles in the ports sector the technology has multiple applications across many industries and we are delighted to be collaborating with Largo Robotics to complement their products and solutions in the logistics field. Largo Robotics already has a leading autonomous electric tow tractor in the market, and we are excited to team up to meet the industry needs for the future sustainability.”
