Peachtree Corners announced that Clevon is joining the city’s Curiosity Lab ecosystem. The company’s autonomous robot carriers (ARCs), powered by T-Mobile connectivity, are designed to collect orders at warehouses, retail stores, dark stores and micro fulfilment centres, and then deliver those goods to people and businesses around the city.
“It was only fitting to bring our second major operation here in the United States to one of the most advanced smart city environments in the world at Peachtree Corners,” says Sander Sebastian Agur, Clevon’s Chief Executive Officer. “A future-forward environment like this complete with city-owned smart infrastructure, T-Mobile’s best-in-class network and opportunities to interact with connected vehicles and people and businesses is invaluable to our continued efforts to optimise autonomous robot carrier operation, including how they will navigate through real-world situations.”
Clevon’s electric ARCs have customisable configurations, to fulfill a multitude of business needs and offer a timely customer delivery experience. The robots can reduce failed deliveries, carbon emissions, cost of delivery per customer and stolen packages. Clevon brings a secure and on-demand and energy-efficient delivery service that has proven itself in all-weather conditions on multiple continents.
“We’re proud to have adopted some of the world’s most advanced emerging technologies here in Peachtree Corners, and we’re delighted to continue that tradition by welcoming Clevon and their autonomous robot carriers to our community,” says Brandon Branham, Curiosity Lab Executive Director. “From a city perspective, we are always looking to improve our residents’ everyday lives with exciting new technologies. Showcasing how robotic solutions can help enhance package delivery operations while reducing congestion and emissions gives us a further peek into a brighter future.”
Clevon’s ARCs operate on US public roadways and are purpose-built for delivering multiple shipments during a single trip. The driving system includes redundant perception technologies and leverages T-Mobile’s IoT solutions. As part of the Curiosity Lab smart city ecosystem, Clevon will also be exploring live testing for 5G adoption in partnership with T-Mobile. Clevon provides safe last-mile services.
“As Clevon’s preferred wireless provider in the US, we’re thrilled to help them advance their Autonomous Driving System and remote monitoring systems in a real-world environment,” says Dave Bezzant, Vice President, T-Mobile for government. “We are proud to be supporting Clevon in this greater mission to create more sustainable and efficient delivery solutions.”
