Hemmingen / Weil der Stadt, September 7th, 2021 – Eisenmann, today S&R Eisenmann GmbH, will cooperate with ILO Mobility GmbH in the future. The traditional family business and the start-up ILO Mobility are jointly developing autonomous lightweight vehicles with electric drives.
The partners are now presenting their first joint project to the public: the delivery robot called 'ILO Maxi' will be presented at the IAA Mobility in Munich from September 7th to 12th and at the ITS World Congress in Hamburg from October 11th to 15th. In line with the Hanseatic trade fair motto, "Experience Future Mobility Now", ILO Maxi is used on the so-called first and last mile of a logistics chain.
The vehicle, which was designed and built in just three months, drives autonomously in familiar environments and, thanks to its modular basic structure, allows a wide range of uses. A conveyor unit enables, for example, the transport of Euro pallets, the delivery of parcels or the delivery of purchases to the front door.
The innovative driving functions are constantly being further developed in order to be able to meet customer requirements even better. "Thanks to the modular approach, we will provide the tailor-made transport vehicle for the respective application," explains Armin Müller, CTO of ILO Mobility, the idea behind the project.
ILO Maxis transport volume is around four cubic meters with a width of 1.2 meters and a length of 2.5 meters. "With the space-efficient delivery robot, we enable a clean but also capacity-oriented delivery of goods without taking up a lot of space in the city," says Marcus Zwick, CEO of ILO Mobility.
The Hemminger Manufaktur Eisenmann supplies the chassis components to the ILO, took over the prototype structure and supported the mobility experts from Weil der Stadt. "Stuttgart Economic Development Networked us in order to strengthen cooperation in the region," says Managing Director Rolf Eisenmann and adds: "We are considered experts for industrial and automotive solutions and are therefore the right addition to ILO Mobility."
