A new autonomous luggage and cargo system has been launched today that looks to offer a host of operational and financial savings to the aviation sector.

Aurrigo, one of the world’s leading autonomous vehicle specialists, says that the Auto-Dolly will give airports the opportunity to move luggage and cargo around both indoor and outdoor settings, without the need for human operator intervention.

The vehicles have the ability to navigate autonomously from one task to another, collecting and dropping off items automatically using a powered roller deck; they also have the unique ability to crab sideways when docking and parallel parking.

A recent trial at Heathrow and a digital-twinning project with a leading Far Eastern airport have proven that this technology can reduce the number of traditional tugs and trailers used to transport cargo and luggage by two thirds, as well as substantially cut carbon emissions.
