Arrival Delivery Van Shows Off Autonomous Skills

This week the company has completed a successful demonstration of Level 4 operation at a parcel depot, with an Arrival van completing maneuvers around an industrial site without a driver behind the wheel. All the actions that it performed in the demo were ones that are performed by a commercial fleet driver on a daily basis, the company noted.

Arrival’s autonomous driving system, currently under development, is dubbed Robopilot, and has been largely developed in-house, making the company a bit of a rarity among EV developers. The system relies primarily on vision sensors, shunning some more expensive sensor tech that it says is unnecessary for operating on public roads.
