    Volvo Trucks - Demonstration of autonomous refuse truck

    Published on Sep 13, 2017

    Together with Swedish waste management company Renova, Volvo Trucks is currently testing and researching how automated vehicles can contribute to safer, more efficient refuse handling and create a better working environment for drivers. The refuse truck Volvo Trucks is now testing continuously monitors its surroundings and immediately stops if an obstacle suddenly appears on the road.

    At the first stop with the automated system activated, the driver climbs out of the cab, goes to the rear of the truck, brings out the wheelie-bin and empties it exactly the way the job is done today by operating the relevant controls. When the operation is completed, the truck automatically reverses to the next bin upon receiving the driver’s command. The driver walks the very same route that the truck takes and thus always has full view of what’s happening in the direction of travel.

    Published on Feb 22, 2018

    Automation will revolutionize the transport industry – it will improve productivity, lower fuel consumption, and optimize traffic management and route planning among other things. For drivers it will increase safety, improve working conditions and in many cases introduce new ways of working. Automation is not about killing jobs – there will still be a need for skilled drivers in the future.

    Volvo Trucks – Introducing Vera, the future of autonomous transport

    Published on Sep 12, 2018

    Vera is an autonomous vehicle that forms part of a larger system. It has the potential to optimise transport in highly-repetitive, short distance flows with large volumes of goods, such as ports, factory areas and logistical mega centres, where it offers better delivery precision and flexibility.

    The sophisticated technology enables round-the-clock operations, while the electric drivelines means a significant reduction in CO2 emissions and noise levels. A cloud-based service connects each vehicle to a transport control centre, which continuously monitors and optimises the logistics flow.

    In the near future, Vera will be further developed by Volvo Trucks together with selected customers in prioritised applications.
