At a consumer electronics trade show in Las Vegas (CES), Continental demonstrated how an unmanned shuttle can be used to transport robots that deliver packages directly to consumers.

At CES 2019, which runs from January 8 to January 11 in Las Vegas, Continental showed a delivery shuttle drone that can be used to deliver robots that bring packages to consumer thresholds. It is called the Continental Urban Mobility Experience (CUbE) and is intended for markets with a high demand for the delivery of goods.

The concept of uninterrupted mobility Continental is built on robots: delivery to the doorstep can become a reality for any inhabitant of the planet, no matter where he ends up on earth, explains Ralph Lauksmann, a specialist in systems and technologies. The concept of the manufacturer of this shuttle allows you to use a vehicle without a driver to transport robots, creating a whole transport team. It makes it more accessible, more efficient and safer to deliver goods to consumers. Moreover, all members of this “team” are electrified, autonomous and, in principle, can be controlled from a single center.

CUbE can immediately transport a group of delivery robots, which at the last stage of the supply chain scatter to distribute goods and packages to nearby addresses. Cars without a driver will become an important element of the “smart cities” of the future, they believe in the company, because they can be used almost around the clock, which means that at any time convenient for the consumer. For example, late in the evening, when people-couriers (as it happens now) the working day has already ended.
