Piaggio Fast Forward – In Boston, Piaggio has GITA and KILO, the first projects developed by Piaggio Fast Forward (PFF), An advanced American Research Center on the mobility of the future. The Italian brand explores the evolution of the world of mobility. So, it does it thinking about the future.
KILO is the GILA “big brother”
GITA is an autonomous vehicle, smart and designed to help people. It carries up to 18 kg, observes and communicates. Then, it can follow a person reaching 35 km/h. Then, it can move independently in an environment that is mapped. The spherical shape and clean design characterize its personality. KILO is the GILA “big brother”. Thanks to a larger load capacity of 100 kg, it can carry up to 120 liters in its compartment. It has an amazing stability due to the support on three wheels.
The first result of this new research
Piaggio anticipates the needs of the moving people and goods. GITA and KILO are the answer to the future needs of a new mobility concept. So, they are light transport vehicles which reposition the man at the center of innovation. So, they give him more independence and a better quality of life. The presentation of GITA and KILO is the first result of this new research. The two vehicles are complemented by what Piaggio is experimenting for the continuous development and improvement of technology and the safety of its vehicles.
Piaggio Fast Forward
In 2015, Piaggio founded Fast Forward. It is leading player in the smart mobility’s field of people and goods. The mission is to help people to move better. As well as faster and more fun. So, PFF produces robots and light transport solutions. They are able to move with people. In the age of artificial intelligence, autonomy and interconnection, Piaggio Fast Forward aim to give to the promotion of the most vibrant cities.
“Deeply understand the people, their habits to suit their needs. This is the path that led us to create GITA. We understand that we must create products in line with the needs of the men of tomorrow. So, the men do it.” said Michele Colaninno, President of PFF. “The people made the success stories and the team of PFF confirms it. Young, enthusiastic who are not afraid of challenges. A melting pot of cultures and professionalism that have created a perfect merging between robotics, mechanical engineering and design.“
