Company:

At Udelv, we are creating a new type of driverless delivery vehicle. We are first-movers in the autonomous delivery sector and were the first to complete a commercial last mile autonomous delivery on public streets in the US. Udelv is using advanced transportation and autonomous driving technologies to revolutionize logistics. The company recently announced a breakthrough partnership with Mobileye, an Intel company, to use Mobileye’s autonomous driver on its next-generation vehicle, the Transporter.
