Self-propelled truck without driver’s seat, run on Swedish road

Einride, a Swedish freight forwarder, has begun a trial delivery of an actual freight-carrying truck, T-Pod, in Jönköping län, Sweden.

The TIPPOT is a fully autonomous drive truck that runs on electricity alone. The bold design, which even omits the driver’s seat, has been designed and, in the event of a case, the operator is fully remotely controlled via the 5G network.

The pilot team will work with DB Schenker, a local logistics company, to make the trip to the cargo terminal several times a day, 300 meters from the warehouse. This is the first time a road has been allowed to be driven by a completely unmanned truck.

The TIPPOT can travel at 85 km / h and the continuous mileage is 200 km. However, as it was the test that allowed the track to run automatically, the Swedish transport authorities instructed them to travel at a speed of 5 km / h during the test.

Robert Falck, CEO of Ein Ride, said that transportation companies are planning to apply for autonomous driving technology first, but they are planning to apply for a road license in the US in 2020. “He said.

He also said that the autonomous driving center is the United States, and that it will also form a completely autonomous driving car market. Ein Ride is also developing T-Log, a timber-carrying version of TIPP. For more information, please click here .



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
