Singapore’s First Autonomous Delivery Robot in Use – The Making of Design with OTSAW
Singapore, March 24th, 2021 – Final Aim is proud to announce that our design supporting startup OTSAW has officially launched Singapore’s first-ever autonomous last-mile delivery robot in use, “Camello.” In collaboration with large industrial businesses such as NTUC FairPrice and DHL, the robot will be in service in Singapore to provide on-demand parcel and grocery delivery. On 11th February 2021, grand launch event was held, in grace by Pasir Ris – Punggol GRC MP Yeo Wan Ling and Dr Janil Puthucheary, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information, Ministry of Health Government Whip, and vice-chairman of Pasir Ris-Punggol Town.
The robot design provided by Final Aim to OTSAW challenges inefficiency issues that Singapore faces in the last-mile of the logistic chain, which accounts for a large proportion of shipment cost and complexity of operations. With many design features such as compact dimensions that are perfectly optimized to the Singapore urban environment, easy-to-use cargo space, and user-friendly interface & sleek styling, the robot is expected to build an ecosystem that provides a new delivery chain to improve customer experience and help businesses gain better efficiency and profitability over time.
