EVIE Sweep is exclusively designed for road sweeping purposes. Road sweeping is a highly mundane, repetitive job that in some situations is safety critical, such as airside at airports to detect, report and remove foreign objects, and on the road network to reduce the risk of punctures and associated collisions or delays.
EVIE has the answer.
EVIE Sweep is an affordable solution to combat the costly, time-consuming process of today’s road sweepers, and it releases no emissions. This project combines EVIE Pod and Elexure to make the UK’s first fully autonomous pure electric, sustainable road sweeper.
EVIE Sweep uses GPS systems to accurately determine its journey and destination, and with our advanced LiDAR/RaDAR sensors, paired with leading Artificial Intelligence technology; it gets there with haste and efficiency, detecting obstacles and planning its own work-arounds. EVIE Sweep is fully autonomous, reducing risk and improving safety. Productivity levels will be boosted in the delivery of these services, and an overall save in cost and time, resulting in better deployment of manpower resources.
