The vehicle is capable of traveling up to four mph and carrying a load of up to 300 lbs.

(UH Communications)
The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa may soon have its own fully-autonomous delivery vehicle thanks to a project by College of Engineering students.

Students comprising team UH Parcel Service (UHPS) have created a wireless prototype driverless delivery vehicle capable of traveling up to four miles per hour, carrying a load of up to 300 pounds, traversing up inclines of 15 degrees (more than most wheelchair ramps) and delivering and receiving packages.

UHPS was tasked with creating an autonomous delivery vehicle to reduce the use of fossil fuels and to make the delivery of products cheaper and more efficient. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for contactless deliveries grew exponentially making this technology even more desired.

While the prototype is able to travel in straight lines and make turns autonomously, programming it to travel across the UH Mānoa campus will be the task for next year’s team.

UHPS overcame many challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, including getting accustomed to virtual meetings and finding time to safely meet in person to test out their prototype.
