Long established research shows pedestrian survivability is dramatically enhanced by restricting impacts to 40km/hr or less. For urban environments, AEV robotics both argue for, and apply, a 40km/hr maximum speed for their vehicles in an effort to make the urban environment safer. The vehicle is also lightweight at less than 1000kg, and engineered for low operating costs. The vehicle is not intended as a competitor to the ‘Swiss army knife’ that the modern EV has become.
