To reflect the expansion into multiple verticals the company changed name to YETI MOVE (Mission Oriented Vehicle Ecosystem) in the spring of 2020. YETI MOVE is focusing on industrial autonomy in a professional controlled environment with repetitive tasks e.g. airports, maritime ports, railyards, industrial sites, construction etc.
