We have developed and patented a robotic system that locates the vehicle's cargo area, opens the lid and installs the charger, both by contact and wireless. It can be installed on city streets, shopping centers, at home, etc. Low cost

How will your solution benefit residents, workers, or visitors in the Michigan Central Station impact area? (1,000 characters)

we can install the solution in the city, so Michigan city could be the first city to be ready to incorporate autonomous car and parcel robots.

Thanks Victor Martin for submitting! Have you thought about creating a feasibility study on AVs in Detroit? As well as infrastructure availability? How can residents in the impact zone benefit from this?
