Arrival – Project Next Generation Drive Unit
Creating the future of flexible manufacturing
- The development and demonstration of a new robotic manufacturing concept for Arrival’s Electric Drive Unit.
- Will leverage the use of data-driven, smart and connected technology for the modular integration within ARRIVAL’s van micro-factory.
- Project aims to reduce capital investment in van production while providing flexibility and effectiveness.
- Total project value £6 million, with £3 million funded through the APC.
- Romax Technology Ltd
- Versustek Ltd
- University of Bradford
The Future of Robotic Manufacturing
The project will produce a blueprint of the robotic manufacturing concept for Arrival’s Electric Drive Unit and will demonstrate the viability of both concept and business case with a full-scale operational unit. This will result in the ability to have modular integration of the Electric Drive Unit alongside the vans’ assembly micro-factory. The consortium is formed of four UK-based partners who bring expertise spanning multiple disciplines to deliver the project: Arrival, Romax Technology, Versustek and the University of Bradford.
