Convertible round

Rather than investing and immediately receiving shares, in this round payments will be transferred directly to the company and shares issued at a future date. A convertible allows a company to raise funds without having to agree a valuation. For more information please view our FAQs.

Autonomous delivery is here. Meet Kar-go, one of the world's first street-legal, self-driving delivery vehicles. You buy something online and this eco-friendly machine drives itself to your house & delivers the package autonomously - bringing convenience and cutting the cost of e-commerce deliveries

  • Fully approved by the DVSA to drive on the roads in the UK
  • Deployed in trials with the Royal Air Force, cash position of £2M
  • Government-backed with paid commercial partnerships in progress
  • Providing a delivery solution for the $4 trillion ecommerce industry

Idea

The multi-trillion $ eCommerce market is growing fast. Consumers want convenience without cost, but the “last mile” remains the most expensive part of logistics & it's not just a retail problem. Imagine you’re a major global organisation with turnover in the billions. The cost of moving things from A-B is millions per quarter. Autonomous deliveries will slash this cost, but, as most major tech & car companies focus on B2C solutions like robotaxis first, the retail industry has to wait.

Academy of Robotics is a technology company providing Autonomous Vehicle Technology as a Service for large organisations - enabling them to simply plug-in our tech, delivering automated vehicle solutions in weeks, not years. They can license our self-driving Kar-go vehicles; our command hub monitoring facility; or we could automate a partner's existing electric fleet.

And we move fast..

Within 6 months of unveiling our Kar-go vehicle at Goodwood in 2019, we agreed a partnership with part of the Vinci group to use our system in road maintenance.

1 year on:

-Kar-go was licensed as street legal by the DVLA in the UK;

-we had developed our first Command Hub integration for remote operation & added safety provision

-and we were on the roads making deliveries in a government-backed trial.

Kar-go received an overwhelmingly positive reception from the public & media.

Now we’re scaling up to meet demand
