Do you wonder how we and our robots work? Check it out in the FAQs
Goggo Network is an autonomous mobility company with the vision to provide all people with logistics and people transportation solutions powered by autonomous vehicle technology.
We are building the largest vehicle-agnostic operator of autonomous and electric fleets in Europe and Middle East, by connecting businesses with autonomous mobility technology. We provide a seamless end-to-end solution powered by autonomous vehicles and robots, thanks to our proprietary technology operating platform, our regulatory collaboration with public entities, and our on-ground operating expertise and workforce.
Goggo was founded in 2018 by serial entrepreneur Martin Varsavsky and ex-McKinsey Associate Partner Yasmine Fage, and has raised over €24M of funding so far from Softbank and Axel Springer Ventures.
Goggo’s delivery robots move in a similar way to pedestrians. Unlike scooters or bicycles, these devices are designed to adapt to regular traffic on sidewalks, avoiding people and/or animals, and are always remotely supervised by a teleoperator.
All the robots that Goggo Network works with have been designed by and for the safety of citizens. Although other traditional transport and delivery methods depend on the human factor (which can be the main responsible for accidents), robots have limited speed and make decisions in real time, always prioritizing people.
The robots have external sensors (cameras, radars, ultrasound sensors) and internal ones, which allow the robot to locate itself and recognize the environment in real time with high precision.
The robots are able to detect pedestrians, cyclists, children, pets, etc., and adapt their trajectory and speed to avoid them, or to stop if necessary.
No, the robots are remotely supervised by a teleoperator at all times. This teleoperator can take control of the robot at any time, thus maximizing the utmost safety of these devices. For example, at pedestrian crossings, the robot will always be teleoperated.
Freight transport accounts for 10% of the vehicles in circulation but is responsible for 20% of the traffic in cities, 30% of the occupation of the streets, and 40% of emissions. The use of robots on sidewalks is a more sustainable service, 100% electric (0 emissions and 0 noise), as well as being an innovative and cost-efficient alternative.
We trust that citizens will behave in a civic manner when interacting with our robots, especially considering that our robots are constantly being monitored and have multiple cameras and anti-theft systems built in.
Goggo devices only cover a small part of the last mile delivery, which is why they don’t substitute riders. In addition, Goggo creates new job opportunities for operators that work in our centers of operations and warehouses, and teleoperators that supervise the robot remotely.
Goggo aims to become the largest operator of autonomous fleets in Europe. We will sooner than later be available in your area, visit our page later or subscribe here and we will let you know as soon as we are available!
