Smart Cities Consortium – Last Mile Autonomous Delivery Systems

Researchers from four UT labs have been building a system that will use robots to conduct contactless deliveries on campus — carrying everything from food to books. People will be able to place orders via a new iOS app, starting with lemonade. The robots will cross complex terrain and navigate around people, cars and other obstacles typical on campus. From offices to dormitories, these deliveries will improve safety and efficiency on the UT Austin campus and help limit exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic. Presenters include Associate Professor Junfeng Jiao (School of Architecture), Associate Professor Luis Sentis (Department of Aerospace Engineering), Assistant Professor Joydeep Biswas (Department of Computer Science), and Assistant Professor of Practice Justin Hart (Department of Computer Science).
