Discipline: Professional Concept

The U Connect combines autonomous technology, electromobility, and connectivity to transport up to 6.5 times more goods for the same cost. The vehicle also helps to optimize traffic flow in and out of the city, effectively reducing city congestion from light commercial vehicles by up to 50%. The autonomous 7.5t modules could potentially bypass current licensing laws. A human operator in the lead pod or vehicle adds the human factor and a layer of responsibility for last-mile delivery. The standardized containers are easily accessed at street level, improving efficiency by 30% and reducing the overall vehicle size for better reception.
