 Project objective

People are travelling by air each year and a common complaint is delayed flights. 10% of flight delays are caused by inefficient ground handling, amounting to €8.9 billion in losses every year. Our project aims to reduce inefficient ground handling by automating ground handling services, making them faster, safer, more robust, less dependent on human operators, and able to withstand all weather conditions. Some airports have started exploring the use of specific autonomous vehicles or kits to remotely control vehicles. However, these “solutions” can be very expensive (up to €500K/vehicle) and most are limited to very specific activities (moving baggage or shuttling passengers). BG Robotics is a spin-off of Ben-Gurion University’s Laboratory of Autonomous Robotics with 10 team members highly skilled in robotics, software/mechanical engineering and computing deep neural networks. we have developed IVObility, the first robotic driver created specifically (but not exclusively) for ground handling vehicles. In less than 10 minutes, any vehicle can be put into immediate action. An existing fleet can be used “as is” since any vehicle can be retrofitted with IVObility without the need for modifications, requiring 84% less capital expenditure than current solutions. As a next step, we want to enhance IVObility’s ruggedness, deepen its algorithm and neuron network and streamline its modular production. We will secure sales contracts with airport operators and ground handling service companies, who has committed to completing a pilot study to demonstrate IVObility’s function and verify the placement of IVObility at the airports they service.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "IVOBILITY" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
