A driverless delivery vehicle jointly built by Hong Kong-based Teksbotics and Chinese firm Uisee is being piloted in Saudi Arabia for last-kilometre deliveries.

The pilot is taking place at the King Abdullah University of Science & Technology in Saudi Arabia. The project aims to connect with local online ecommerce in Saudi Arabia and provide affordable and convenient autonomous delivery services.

Residents in the university community can interact with the delivery vehicle through mobile phone text messages and the touch screen installed on the body of the vehicle to complete the express delivery service. In the future, the autonomous delivery vehicle will be extended to other cities and places.

This vehicle is based on Teksbotics Uno autonomous delivery vehicle designed for the Middle East market and Uisee’s UiBox smart city autonomous driving service. The vehicle can accurately detect people and objects while autonomously driving on open roads, and complete the full process of delivery service, ensuring the safe delivery of packages to their destinations.

Teksbotics aims to help users automate transportation, distribution and patrolling. It has experience in design, project operation and maintenance of autonomous driving in the self-driving vehicle industry.

Since the Autonomous Driving Smart City Service Innovation Laboratory was established with partners in September last year, Uisee has cooperated with Teksbotics, YTO Express, ZTO Express and SF Express to carry out a number of projects within the country and abroad.

Teksbotics and Uisee say they are striving to be world leaders in autonomous applications and AI driver technology, letting global users experience the intelligence and convenience brought by the autonomous driving technology.
