Can you envision a business ecosystem in which mobile platforms transport circular economy service robots around the city? AutoMod – ‘Autonomous and Modular Utility Vehicle concepts in CE’ project will find out how the platform could work and what kind of robots it could host.
The goal of the AutoMod project is to create a new kind of business ecosystem and platform in which utility robots can solve circular economy challenges in a smart city. In the future the AutoMod ecosystem can cover all of Finland and serve also other purposes than just circular economy ones.
From ideas to implementation
The project consortium is responsible for the development of the platform to host the new autonomous modules. An innovation challenge and co-creation workshops will be used to develop the robotic modules together with participating companies.
The project consortium will offer testing facilities and advice in connecting the modules to the platform and ensure the overall functionality of the system.
Previous experiments with robot buses, drone services, last mile logistics and circular economy digitalisation applications provide experience and knowledge to be utilised in the project
