    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.
