    Volvo Trucks - Robot driven trucks tests active safety systems - Trucks Anatomy

    Published on Oct 28, 2015

    In this episode of Trucks Anatomy we visit the Asta Zero test facility where Volvo Trucks test their collision warning with emergency brake system with the help of robot driven trucks. Accurate test results are key to developing better active safety systems. Using robots instead of human drivers leads to better precision and repeatability.

    “Advanced safety systems, require advanced test methods”, says Anna Wrige Berling, Project Manager, Vehicle Dynamics & Active Safety at Volvo Group Trucks Technology.

    Volvo Trucks’ collision warning with emergency brake system is already standard in all Volvo FH models. By November 2015 this system will be a legal requirement on all new trucks in Europe.

    Published on Dec 3, 2015

    A full-size truck. A little girl with a remote control. A gravel pit filled with obstacles. Is our toughest truck tough enough to survive Sophie? Find out, share and comment.

    This live test was set up to demonstrate the sturdiness and mobility of the Volvo FMX. A unique cage construction, cast-iron front plus corners and skidplate of high-grade steel make this a very tough truck indeed. And thanks to Automatic Traction Control – a revolutionary new feature that automatically engages the front axle when you need it – you won’t get stuck.

    The world's first self-driving truck in an underground mine

    Published on Sep 7, 2016

    Volvo’s fully autonomous truck is the first in the world to be tested in operations deep underground in the Kristineberg Mine. The self-driving truck is part of a development project aimed at improving the transport flow and safety in the mine. The truck will cover a distance of 7 kilometres, reaching 1,320 metres underground in the narrow mine tunnels.
    “This is the world’s first fully self-driving truck to operate under such tough conditions. It is a true challenge to ensure that everything works meticulously more than 1300 metres underground,” says Torbj?rn Holmstr?m, member of the Volvo Group Executive Board and Volvo Group Chief Technology Officer.
    Volvo Group is now releasing a film showing the opportunities that open up with autonomous trucks. The film was recorded in harsh operating conditions in the Kristineberg Mine 100 kilometres from Arvidsjaur in northern Sweden. Torbj?rn Holmstr?m, who takes part in the film, wants to show how safe the truck is. He didn’t hesitate to stand in the middle of the mine gallery as the truck approached him.
    “No matter what type of vehicle we develop, safety is always our primary concern and this also applies to self-driving vehicles. I was convinced the truck would stop but naturally I felt a knot in my stomach until the truck applied its brakes!”
    The entirely self-driving truck that takes the lead role in the film is a specially equipped Volvo FMX. Using various sensors, it continuously monitors its surroundings and avoids both fixed and moving obstacles. At the same time, an on-board transport system gathers data to optimize and coordinate the route and fuel consumption. The truck is part of a development project and is being tested in real-life operation for the very first time.
