YAPE: Your Autonomous Pony Express

YAPE: Your Autonomous Pony Express

YAPE (Your Autonomous Pony Express) is a terrestrial drone designed to perform autonomous last mile deliveries. The project stems from the collaboration between Politecnico di Milano and e-Novia, a startup factory based in Milan. YAPE sensors suite enables it to perceive both the surrounding environment and its own motion, and to autonomously navigate complex and challenging environments. YAPE control pipeline is continuously evolving thanks to a R&D collaborative effort between YAPE srl and the mOVe research group within Politecnico di Milano, with the overarching goal of making it the reference in the ground delivery battlefield.
