Amazon buys 20,000 vans equipped with ULSee 3D Space Planning tech

Abstract:ULSee’s 3D spatial planning technology and skeleton recognition technology make this Sprinter truck from Mercedes-Benz more forward-looking and innovative in design, minimizing staffing and training, increasing loading efficiency and increasing operational profitability.

On September 5, 2018, Amazon announced that it will order 20,000 new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter trucks for a new commercial logistics distribution project. ULSee offers two new solutions for these trucks.

The goal of the project is to ensure the ability to provide customer orders through a large upfront investment and allowing small businesses to lease Amazon trucks through third-party logistics companies. This will help Amazon’s home delivery service increase and reduce its reliance on delivery pillars such as FedEx, UPS and US Postal Service.

Nowadays, the imbalance between supply and demand for driver shortages and rising demand for e-commerce services has reached a historical peak, and logistics providers are fully seeking solutions. ULSee’s 3D spatial planning technology and skeleton recognition technology make this Sprinter truck from Mercedes-Benz more forward-looking and innovative in design, minimizing staffing and training, increasing loading efficiency and increasing operational profitability.

3D Space Planning Solution

Automatic Parcel Scanning

Automatically scan packages when the courier enters or leaves the car, reducing loading and unloading time.

Parcel Tracking

On-board sensors detect and track the positional changes of each package during the logistics process, providing fleet managers and couriers with a complete 3D view of the passing car.

Space Planning

During loading, the system automatically directs the courier to the current best loading location in conjunction with the package destination, priority and volume.

Unloading Guidance

The goods are delivered to the destination, and the system guides the courier to unload the corresponding parcel, reducing the waste of time during the unloading process.

Semi-automatic door mechanism

The automatic two-wing revolving door controlled by the camera linkage sensor embeds

ULSee skeleton analysis and face detection technology. When the courier is identified as holding the parcel facing the door, the door will automatically open. This reduces the number of work steps, improves the safety of the driver’s work, and on the other hand reduces the possibility of stolen goods.
