It is difficult to adapt traditional manual labor to the strict standards and efficiency requirements of sanitation work in this modern era. The involvement of autonomous sweeper fleet transforms cleaning, and makes urban sanitation more efficient, eco-friendly, and more technologically advanced. The autonomous sweeper fleet also resolves difficulties around sanitation workers working in limited periods and areas, such as rash-hour operation, late-night overtime, and high-risk environments. This ultimately helps to bring about safer working environments.

Under the strong promotion of national policies, has gained the support of several local governments, and managed to commercialize and operate its products and solutions in some cities, including Shanghai, Beijing, Wuhan, and Xiamen.
