Urban logistics, the experimentation of the robot-deliveryman starts in Milan

The Yape robot messenger arrives in Milan for last mile deliveries. The experimentation of a fleet of self-driving robots, the first in Italy, will take place in the Cascina Merlata area, with a delivery service between shops and residences in the “Uptown district”.

Equipped with two self-balancing wheels, which allow the robot to adapt to different contexts, Yape, produced by a start-up of the e-Novia group, can carry up to 10 kilograms for a maximum of 80 kilometers. During the experimentation it will be equipped with a speed regulation system that will not exceed 6 kilometers per hour.

The goal is to make autonomous transport increasingly effective, safe and sustainable, reducing traffic and pollution related to deliveries in city centers, as well as meeting the needs of those residents who cannot or find it difficult to move from their homes. .

The project was made possible by ‘Experimentation Italy’, a regulatory sandbox that allows start-ups, companies and universities to experiment with innovative projects with exceptions to current regulations.

With the authorization of the Department for Digital Transformation, the first part of Yape’s technical experimentation is now starting, which will last six months. The second phase will then kick off the actual experimentation, which will benefit the citizens of the Municipality of Milan for a further six months.
