TERAKI tests 5G Network Autonomy for Delivery Robots in Kista, Sweden

BERLIN and KISTA, October 5, 2022. In a demonstration in Kista, Sweden, TERAKI rolled out an autonomous delivery robot that - next to its own sensors - also used information coming from external sensors via 5G. The concept is known as 5G network-supported autonomy and it enlarges the autonomous vehicles’ understanding of their surroundings by adding information from external sensors, like static street cameras. Thus, the vehicle can act upon its integrated sensors (radar, camera, lidar) and “see what’s around the corner” by retrieving data from outside cameras or other sensors, ultimately increasing safety.

The test was part of Kista Mobility Day 22, where demo activities took off together with foodora and Ericsson. The event provided a space for companies to showcase autonomous driving solutions to a wide audience of decision-makers and researchers in the space of urban mobility and smart city infrastructure.

Hans Skruvfors, foodora CEO, stressed how “sustainable, autonomous robot deliveries will be the future.” “Together with our friends at TERAKI, Ericsson, Kista Science City, and the city of Stockholm we are pushing the boundaries to make the future to come even faster. With 5G and connected physical sensors in the city environment, we can make autonomous robots deliver even faster and safer than ever before.” shared the CEO on Linkedin.

The technology, enabled by Ericsson and TERAKI, provides a complementary field of view that allows the robot to perform cross-sensor validation, integrating external sensor data in the 5G mobile edge and building an accurate digital twin of the (traffic participants in an) area. Therefore, network autonomy upgrades the safety of autonomous operations by improving the identification of traffic elements in real-time, significantly reducing latency, and enhancing path planning functions.

The advancement of 5G network autonomy goes beyond autonomous last-mile delivery and it will improve the performance of other use cases such as autonomous forklifts and autonomous cars L2+ cases.
