(video) BBC – Aurrigo’s self-driving dolly to help solve Heathrow’s baggage challenges.

Aurrigo was asked by International Airlines Group (IAG) to use its driverless expertise to develop the world’s first autonomous and electric baggage carrying solution.

The trial began in March and has seen an existing dolly converted using LIDAR and GPS technology into a self-driving vehicle, which promises to reduce the chaotic nature of airports by increasing the speed of loading and unloading bags.

Working with British Airways (BA), the adapted dolly has been moving around Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport.

Designed, developed and manufactured at Aurrigo’s advanced engineering centre, the firm will now embark on a project for the wider aviation industry to retrofit existing dollies and make them self-driving.
