    EDAG CITYBOT AI prototype: compact background info package

    New mobility concepts have become more important than ever. For many people, urban traffic congestion is noticeable and a part of everyday life. Increasing emissions, noise, overcrowding, and above all - traffic jams. These are challenges that need to be solved.

    Motivated by these considerations, the EDAG Group presented its sustainable and fully integrated CityBot mobility concept at the IAA in Frankfurt in 2019. The CityBot does not belong to any particular type of vehicle. EDAG CityBots are networked, autonomous robot vehicles which are coupled up with various utility modules such as trailer and rucksack modules, to enable them to master any mobility, transport and work situations in urban or industrial areas. Far from being a stand-alone solution, they are an integral part of a demand-oriented, fully integrated transport system. Permanently in motion, and therefore enormously efficient. With everything operating under a self-contained software system, to facilitate the intelligent interlinking and efficient coordination of the diverse tasks and logistic processes in the Smart City.

    An all-round, networked and radically different mobility concept. It's certainly visionary, but is it also feasible? With the presentation of the AI prototype of the EDAG CityBot this autumn, the EDAG Group proved that this is indeed the case. By means of innovative trajectory planning and self-localisation, the AI prototype that was presented at the EDAG Tech Summit in October 2020 can autonomously move around the playground and approach an identified waste object with pinpoint accuracy. Thanks to AI and machine learning, the EDAG specialists have developed an object recognition system capable of identifying objects such as a ball of paper, a beverage can or a bottle, and then using its robotic arm to pick it up and dispose of it correctly.

    Below, we are offering a comprehensive background info package covering the key conceptual and technical subjects. This consists of films, white papers and expert interviews, and can be downloaded free of charge.

    Christmas is over but there are still packages at EDAG: Let us inform you about the fascinating EDAG CityBot concept and future-oriented AI prototype. We think you will be inspired!

    If you have any questions, our expert for the EDAG CityBot, Johannes Barckmann, Head of Global Fairs + Showcars, will be glad to answer them.
