Pre-loaded mass-produced autonomous vehicle boosts smart cleaning by reducing costs and increasing efficiency
Autowise.ai-Wuxi Xishan Business District Project includes over a million square meters of road cleaning and hundreds of thousands square meters green cleaning. It has been more than a year since the project started operation in January 2022, with good performance and gradually expanding in scale. In November last year, the new Autowise V3 joined the Wuxi project to carry out autonomous cleaning operations on Runxi North Road, Jiaoyang Middle Road and other operating areas.

“An autonomous sweeper can work continuously for 16 hours, sweeping 5 km per hour, covering the workload of 10 to 20 sanitation workers in a day. Thanks to Wuxi’s good roadside unit foundation, autonomous sweepers can locate and clean more accurately.” The staff from Autowise.ai introduced, “Traditional sanitation workers facing problems like heavy labor intensity, poor working environment and serious safety issues. Autonomous driving technology can well compensate for these pain points and also significantly reducing operating costs.” Compared to the same size sweeper, Autowise V3 is equipped with twice the size of the freshwater tank and three times the size of the waste hopper, tripling the overall sweeping efficiency. With the AV-kit, the operating cost of V3 is reduced by 30%, and the traffic accidents can also be avoided.
A multi-purpose next-generation autonomous platform was unveiled
At this ceremony, Autowise.ai also brought the new self-developed autonomous platform Roboard-X, which can realize multi-scene upper X transformation. It has realized the X of passenger vehicle (AW Roboard-Space), logistics vehicle (AW Roboard-Van) and sweeper (AW Roboard-Sweeper), with a cab-less design. Roboard-X can fully support efficient reuse in different scenarios. This is also the first time that Roboard-X has been shown in public in China since its release in January, 2023.
Autowise.ai will continue to optimize product performance, improve the level of refined management in the city, and provide mature model for the large-scale commercial application of autonomous driving.
