AIDrivers & Largo Robotics team up for logistics automation

AIDrivers continues to add new partnerships for its autonomous vehicle software and systems. Its latest agreement is with Turkey’s Largo Robotics and will see AIDrivers’ software enhance the autonomous capabilities of Largo’s platform by “incorporating the key tools of V2X enabled fleet operator and digital twin to meet industry needs for sustainable automation,” AIDrivers said.


Largo has developed autonomous electric tow tractors for the logistics market and autonomous robots for the retail environment. These will be pared with AIDrivers’ software including its Autonomous Intelligent Operating System (AIOS), which features precision 3D mapping and localisation, Ai enabled perception with situation cognisance and “responsive autonomous drive including a behavioural model of articulated vehicles for natural navigation”. The AIOS is powered by the Ai enabled fleet operator (AIFO) which provides a holistic view of autonomous operations.


V2X is a scheduling, path planning and fleet management tool, supported by an “innovative phasic based digital twin (AISE)”.


The AIOS platform will be integrated with Largo Robotics electric tow tractor, which has CE compliance approval in Turkey. “Having successfully achieved proof of concept, a number of orders for these tow tractors have been received and the company is scaling up for production and delivery. The adoption and integration of the AIDrivers’ autonomous software stack will further improve the capabilities and safety of the Largo Robotics tow tractors,” the companies stated. AIDrivers and Largo Robotics are also targeting the global market.


“AIDrivers has developed industry leading autonomous software that enables vehicles to operate autonomously without any infrastructure change in a variety of environments and conditions,” said Dr Rafiq Swash, CEO and Founder of AIDrivers. “Whilst our initial focus has been in larger and heavy vehicles in the ports sector the technology has multiple applications across many industries and we are delighted to be collaborating with Largo Robotics to complement their products and solutions in the logistics field. Largo Robotics already has a leading autonomous electric tow tractor in the market, and we are excited to team up to meet the industry needs for the future sustainability.”


“We are always looking to enhance our products and have been impressed by the capabilities that AIDrivers has developed autonomous solutions to equip port vehicles and cranes with a proven track record in the sector,” added Baris Ustun, Co-Founder and MD of Largo Robotics.” We believe that by incorporating AIDrivers’ autonomous software stack into our robotics products we will be able to provide competitive solutions with safety at the fore in the logistics industry which is highly demanding and never sleeps. This is a natural next step for us, and we are looking forward to working with AIDrivers team and their exceptional technology.”
