• It is an autonomous robotic wheel with a self-balancing system, retractable electric arms and GPS communication capabilities that enable it to operate in isolation or as a troop. According to the designer Kobi Shiker, the robotic delivery service could replace the need for large delivery vehicles clogging up the roads but perhaps more usefully it may also remove the need to deliver items during working hours.
  • The autonomous robotic wheels use GPS to help them navigate and to alert people that their delivery is close. According to Shiker, the vehicles could also operate at night on roads when they are quieter or even race up the hard shoulder rather than getting in the way of other vehicles.
  • While the Transwheel is still a concept design, Shiker hopes to develop it into a working prototype if he can find an industry partner to develop it with.
