Donlen orders 1000 autonomous vehicles from Udelv
Well known American fleet management company, Donlen has just announced its first pre-order of 1,000 Transporters, an autonomous electric delivery vehicle from Californian automaker Udelv. This pre-order could very well be the largest up to now for an autonomous delivery vehicle.
The Transporter will make use of Mobileye’s self-driving system technology branded Mobileye Drive, the companies announced last April. Fleets of Transporters are planned for operation starting in 2023 as more than 35,000 Transporters are planned for production from 2023 to 2028.
Udelv will take care of the integration of Mobileye Drive with its Delivery Management System as Mobileye will be providing technical oversight and over-the-air software support. Mobileye-driven Transporters will be capable of L4 self-driving and point-to-point operation.
