Coco, the robot-based delivery service company, and DriveU.auto, developer of a superior software-based connectivity platform for robots and autonomous vehicle teleoperation, announced today that DriveU’s platform has been deployed on Coco’s already-operational delivery robot fleet and will be deployed with the new Coco 1 robots.

DriveU has been selected by Coco Delivery to provide its connectivity platform for its current and next generation delivery robots. The software solution integrates into the existing robot platform to provide high quality video with low latency. A key component in the solution is the cloud-based architecture, which enables scaling up to a large number of robots.

Coco is currently deploying its next generation COCO 1 robots to serve local merchants in multiple cities. With its increased carrying capacity, the COCO 1 will deliver larger orders for a wider range of merchants, further eliminating the need for car-based delivery. DriveU’s industry-leading connectivity platform is enabling the remote operation of Coco’s delivery robot fleet, securing a superior customer experience.

Delivery robots have seen massive growth, addressing an ever-growing customer demand for rapid deliveries from restaurants and other merchants. The Coco robots are now being operated by skilled remote operators who drive them using DriveU’s software-based connectivity platform.

Communication between the moving robots and the remote operator is done via public cellular networks, which can be highly unstable and unpredictable. For remote operation to be safe and effective, consistent high quality video connectivity with low latency is required. When connectivity isn’t stable, video quality suffers and latency increases, which is unacceptable while remotely operating.
