Meituan Dianping is a large global on-demand food delivery company that combines the business models of Uber Eats, Yelp and Groupon, and cooperates with more than 400,000 local companies. They launched a small-bag automatic delivery vehicle that can transport meals from restaurants to consumers.
The pouch is being tested at three locations, including Beijing Chaoyang Joy City, Lenovo's Shenzhen office, and Xiongan New District.
Although the size of the delivery vehicle and its battery is small, the amount of processing required for sensing, positioning, and path planning is the same as that of a large unmanned vehicle, and it relies heavily on the high-performance computing of Jetson AGX Xavier.
Xia Huaxia, general manager of Meituan, said: Unmanned delivery vehicles are vital to the development of the logistics industry and can greatly improve distribution and distribution. We look forward to using the powerful AI capabilities of Jetson AGX Xavier to enhance the function of the autonomous pouch delivery robot.
