ABSTRACT

A Korean company specialised in high precision processing technology is preparing for a R&D project proposal under German-Korean Call. The main goal is to develop a delivery module which consists of a drone, droid and logistics station with autonomous docking and undocking technology. In this consortium, the Korean company would be the project coordinator and will be in charge of developing droid and logistics station. And they are looking for a German company to develop and manufacture drone.

FULL DESCRIPTION

With the rapid growth of online/mobile shopping, the delivery of grocery and fresh food has been increasing in the world, resulting in high demand of 24-hours fast delivery service and productivity/performance in logistics. Thus, delivery drone and autonomous droid has been developed and commercialised by global IT companies around the world.

However, there are several barriers. Autonomous droid for land delivery has a difficulty in long-distance delivery due to tough geographical condition or low mileage. High buildings in urban environments is also an obstacle to the delivery drone.

For these reasons, the Korean company that mainly develops and manufactures all types of system cabinet for defence sector is planning to develop a delivery module consisting of drone, droid and logistics station with autonomous docking and undocking technology, aiming at 24-hour safe and fast autonomous delivery system for both air transportation and land delivery.

In this module, drone will be for long distance delivery from logistics centres to city hub (logistic station) and droid will be for short distance delivery from city hub (logistic station) to final destination.

In order to implement these features above, the specification of drone, droid and logistics station, required to be developed is as below. This Korean company will develop droid for land delivery, and logistics station and will lead this project as the project coordinator.

And drone for air transportation will be developed by potential German partners respectively.

1) Drone (will be developed by the German partner)
- Carrier Drone + shipping module (15kg class)
- Drone’s mission radius: farther 50km
- Drone’s cruising speed: faster 100km/h
- Operating time: over 1 hour
- A vertical take-off and vertical landing drone
- Electric power & low noise technology system

2) Droid for delivery (will be developed by the Korean company)
- Droid for delivery + shipping module (15kg class)
- Droid’s mission radius: farther 3km
- Droid’s cruising speed: faster 5km/h (Max. 10km/h)
- Operating time: over 2 hours
- Autonomous driving in urban road (side walk)
- Electric power system

3) Logistics station (will be developed by the Korean company)
- Secured area of minimum 5m X 5m to land and take off for drone
- To operate droid for 24H, all logistic stations must have charging ports
- Shipping modules are docked and undocked by droid and drone at logistic station.
- To guide drones and droids to logistic station

4) Docking and undocking control accuracy
- Accuracy of docking and undocking is within 1cm

As Korean company wishes to submit the R&D proposal to German-Korea Call until 30 September 2021, they intend to close the issuance of EOI (express of interest) for partner search on 20 August 2021.
The German-Korean Call is funded by the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy of Korea(MOTIE) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy(BMWi).


Partner expertise sought:

- Specific area of activity of the partner: The Korean company is looking for German company specialised in drone development
1) Drone
- Carrier Drone + shipping module (15kg class)
- Drone’s mission radius: farther 50km
- Drone’s cruising speed: faster 100km/h
- Operating time: over 1 hour
- A vertical take-off and vertical landing drone
- Electric power & low noise technology system


Advantages & innovations:

1. Technological advantages
- safe and fast delivery (100km/h, 15Kg)
- Able to do both air transportation and land delivery in a short
(droid) and long distance (drone) through the development of
precise autonomous docking and undocking technology
(logistics station) on a module

2. Economical and industrial advantages
- Logistics robot/drone increases logistic circulation, work and
labour productivity.
- It is through integrating advanced technology to be utilised in
various areas.
1) Integrating with AR/VR, robot-human interface: traffic
monitoring, industrial facility inspection/management, etc
2) Integrating with AI, big data: military target tracking,
reconnaissance, lifesaving, etc.
3) Integrating with high-precision real-time self-integrated
control technology: movie/broadcasting measurement and
3D map production
