The coming weeks BUas will host an autonomous and electric delivery robot. To make it more personal we called him LOWIE (the Dutch abbreviation of Logistics on Wheels). The robot will distribute all kinds of (non-food) goods between the three main buildings. During the trial students will research the delivery robot's impact: the vehicle's performance, the environment's behaviour, such as that of the pedestrians and cyclists on campus, as well as the user friendliness of such a robot.
This special project is organised in collaboration with Future Mobility Network, a private company owned by BUas alumnus Alwin Bakker, and Qatar-based hardware developer Airlift Systems. In addition, the pilot project is supported by Logistics Community Brabant (LCB) and the Region of West-Brabant.
