Piaggio Group Introduces Autonomous Personal Carrier GITA and KILO

Piaggio Group presented yesterday in Boston GITA and KILO, the first projects developed by Piaggio Fast Forward (PFF), a company established and controlled by the Piaggio Group to be an advanced American research centre for future mobility.

GITA is an autonomous vehicle, designed to assist people. It carries up to 18 kg, observes, and communicates. It can follow a person reaching up to 35 km/h, and knows how to move independently in a mapped environment. The spherical shape and clean design characterise its personality.

KILO is the “big brother” of GITA, and thanks to a larger capacity it can transport up to 100 kg in its 120 lt compartment. It has extraordinary stability thanks to its three wheels.

Michele Colaninno, Chairman of PFF commented“To deeply understand people and their habits to meet their needs, this is the course that led us to create GITA. We understood that we have to create products in line with the needs of tomorrow’s humans, and we will do it through humanity. The success story is made up of PFF people and teams, who confirm it. They are young, enthusiastic, with no fear of challenges, a melting pot of cultures and professionalism that have created a perfect merging of robotics, engineering, and design.”

Roberto Colaninno, Chairman and CEO of the Piaggio Group, declared, “The Piaggio Group, through the creation of PFF, looks again to the future, to young people, to the future generations, and doesn’t want to merely be ready to face the challenges of this increasingly complex mobility scenario, but wants to be leading agent of this change. Innovation, research and curiosity are the basis of this project and are its main drivers.”

The revolutionary nature of GITA and KILO is in their ability to provide support to people in the various activities that characterise their movements in everyday life, extending the limited operating range and carrying capacity of humanity. They are, in fact, conceived as a true platform for mobility, which can be customised and integrated to meet different needs in multiple scenarios.
