Meet Auto-Dolly


Aurrigo, a developer of autonomous vehicles, has unveiled the Auto-Dolly, designed to enable ground handlers to move luggage and cargo around indoor and outdoor airport settings without the need for human operators.

The vehicles have the ability to navigate autonomously from one task to another, collecting and dropping off items automatically using a powered roller deck. Auto-Dolly also has the ability to ‘crab’ sideways when docking and parallel parking.

A recent trial at London’s Heathrow Airport, and a digital-twinning project with an unnamed “leading Far Eastern airport” have shown that this technology can reduce the number of traditional tugs and trailers used to transport cargo and luggage by two thirds, while also cutting carbon emissions.
