entirely designed and built in italy, the e-novia ‘YAPE’ is able to rotate on the spot and utilzes autonomous electric engines. however, it enhances even more advanced technology in order to navigate cities. using sensors in the form of video cameras and lasers, the robot produces digital maps that can communicate real-time incidents, such as detection of holes, accidents and construction sites. with its ecosystem app, users can summon the ‘YAPE’, where, when it arrives, a parcel(s) of up to 70kg in weight can be placed inside its empty luggage compartment.
