The autonomous rover is equipped with Velodyne’s market-leading VLP-16 Puck™ sensor, which is built into the top of the rover for a high-performance surround view, enabling Serve to detect people and objects as it completes local deliveries.

Serve can carry 50 lbs and go 30 miles on a single charge. Also, it can interact with customers via touchscreen and cameras, as well as its dynamic lighting eyes.

“With the Serve rover, Postmates has created a groundbreaking mobility solution that will transform how we move goods and make it easier for merchants to connect with their local communities,” said Mike Jellen, President and CCO, Velodyne Lidar. “Postmates provides a leading example of how companies are using the power of Velodyne lidar to fulfill the creativity of innovators, changing the world with autonomous products and services.”
