AuDIS: Automated Distribution system is an intelligent system which caters all the logistical and delivery demands within New York city limits. It integrates large automated warehouse facilities just outside Manhattan, where the trucks arrive and offload the consignments, which are then distributed to local fulfillment systems through subways.
The Driverless Future Challenge sought proposals that would actively shape the city’s response to driverless cars. Entries from more than 25 countries proposed everything from driverless food carts and a fully-autonomous MTA transit system, to enhanced use of NYC’s 311 system as a driverless dispatching center, and Link NYC Wifi stations that become stops for autonomous micro-busses.
