Driverless street sweepers

Thanks to AI, the EIT Climate-KIC supported Enway’s robots increase the efficiency of sweeping operations compared to manual vehicles. The use of this technology is expected to accelerate the cleaning process, provide better results, and reduce operating costs by 65 %. The company already operates trucks across Germany thanks to a partnership with EAD Darmstadt (waste management services). In 2019, Enway plans to introduce its city sweepers in Singapore and Scandinavia.
