Automated public urban freight transportation networks have the potential to greatly increase the energy efficiency of material transport by more closely matching the mass of the goods being transported with the mass of the transportation apparatus and reduce the cost to society by removing the requirement for human supervision for each package. In this paper, we present an overview of the considerations for the design of the user interface for such a system (the Urban Express Robotic Network), a description of the implemented prototype and its user interface, lessons learned from focus group testing, and plans for future work on this project.
