Our Story

The last-mile delivery challenge


The urban population is 74 % in Switzerland and 56 % worldwide, and this share will increase even more in the future, requiring smart solutions to make life in cities more liveable. With this growth, more goods are being moved from place to place than ever before, but …

CO2 Emissions

… CO2 emissions from transportation account for 41%!

Traffic

… traffic congestion increases due to human piloted vehicles!

Delivery Times

… the growing demand for faster delivery can no be met!

2030

36% rise in delivery vehicles in cities by 2030, leading to an emission increase of over 30%!

This last-mile delivery challenge requires electric, small-scale autonomous solutions!

The future of robotic mobility!


Swiss-Mile extends our research of the last five years by deploying a multimodal platform to tackle last-mile delivery challenges and logistics with superior speed, efficiency, versatility and payload capability. With both legs and wheels, our robot outperforms state-of-the-art wheeled delivery platforms as well as lightweight delivery drones. It is the only solution capable of carrying tools, materials, goods and sensors over long distances with energy efficiency and speed while overcoming challenging obstacles like steps and stairs and enabling seamless navigation in indoor and outdoor urban environments.

Speed & Efficiency

Up to 6.2 m/s (22.32 km/h or 13.87 miles/h) and 83 % more efficient than legged systems!

Versatility

Overcomes challenging obstacles and enables navigation in indoor and outdoor spaces!

Payload Capabilities

Can carry tools, materials, goods, and sensors with a maximum payload of 50 kg!
