Woodpecker is modular and multifunctional electrical vehicle platform with low production and TCO- Total Costs of Ownership for urban logistics and micromobility.
Woodpecker is opensource, smart low-emission mobility solution that enable operational productivity, and well-being in future cities.
Woodpecker’s “skateboard” compact and modular frame in combination with ecological wooden frame creates innovative concept for future development of transportation.
In partnership with your city we are going to deliver POC (proof of concept) of unmanned electric LSV (low speed vehicle) platform for urban logistics and micromobility.
Vehicle is intended to be used in 3 modes – manual, teleoperation and autonomous (virtual rail).
Operator by teleoperation is driving the vehicle from point to point or to the dedicated virtual rail path, where platform can move fully autonomously.
Platform is built on skateboard compact and modular frame concept and is fully drive by wire controlled by initial design. Flatbed platform with universal fix points allow to interchange different bodies. Pixdrive drive by wire controller developed by Pilot is providing API for drive controller Pixtrail and management software Pixsight. Connectivity provided through dedicated Wi-Fi network of 4/5G network.
Passenger vehicles for urban logistics are inefficient and expensive.
Operating crew is not motivated by low salaries, companies struggling to maintain highly skilled workforce and safety requirements.
Vehicles are expensive to repair and maintain, diversity of manufacturers and brands increase difficulty.
Altogether it creates high TCO – total cost of ownership for urban logistics.
We are going to eliminate workforce costs and add safety to operations through vehicle automatic or remote operation. We are going to introduce easy to repair, modules based electric platforms with interchangeable bodies to efficiently maintain fleet of vehicles.
Efficiency and know-how from different market verticals, experience, lean startup approach.
Open source type of Woodpecker http://woodpecker.mobi allow us to test technical solutions on wider community, as well as test and design most cost-effective modules for electric vehicle.
