Estonian tech website Geenius.ee had an exclusive chat with Cleveron’s CEO Arno Kütt who believes that their newest robot will drive on roads just as self-driving cars do, carrying hundreds of kilograms of packages. This means that the robots will be quite different from delivery robots as we know from another Estonian success story Starship Robots and will resemble cars.
When reaching its destination, the autonomous robot will deliver the packages to the client’s personal parcel locker – or the client can pick it up from the autonomous robot manually.
The newest robot that will be shown to the public for the first time at Robotex International Conference is called Lotte, named after a famous Estonian cartoon character.
At the same time, Cleveron is still working on its delivery drones but what operations they will be able to help with cannot be yet disclosed.
The Robotex International Conference will take place through November 30 – December 1 in the unique space of Tallinn Creative Hub in the city centre.
Prior to the main event, on November 29th, Robotex’s Investor Day will take place. The investors will be taken to a secret location near Tallinn where a keynote speech will be delivered by Fabian Westerheide, one of the top frontier tech investors in Europe. Keynote will be followed by a networking lunch and the adventure seekers can go on a fatbike ride around a lake.
Investor tickets can be bought on the Conference’s website. You can get a 20% discount on any of the tickets using the code INVEST2018.
