A Clean Sweep: How Adopting Autonomous Vehicle and EV Technology is Paving the Way to Increased Road Sweeper Efficiency and Safety while Reducing Environmental Impact

This webinar will take place on:
29 June, 2021
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST

Sweepers operate in many different environments, for example in urban areas where cleanliness is a priority for quality of life. The necessity of efficient surface sweepers is even more paramount in situations where foreign objects pose a real and present danger to the operation of modes of transportation such as aircraft. The efficient operation of sweepers in these environments is crucial, as is reducing the risks of accidents. The adoption of autonomous technology reduces the chance of collision with vehicles on the runway and aircraft, which can lead to serious accidents and expensive aircraft repairs.

Aircraft manufacturers estimate that FOD (Foreign Object Damage) costs the industry $4 billion a year. In addition to the costs of repairing damaged aircraft, the aviation industry incurs many indirect costs, among which are flight delays, decreased fuel efficiencies, workforce absences, and legal cases.

Westfield and Bucher Municipal, along with LiDAR technology from LeddarTech, have come together to address these problems.

Attend this webinar and:

    • Understand the environmental and staffing requirements for sweeping

    • Identify the application environments of the Autonomous Sweeper

    • Potential markets such as Airports, Councils and Sports venues
