The Volvo Group continues its drive to develop next-generation transport solutions. The latest examples include a system in which autonomous electric vehicles are coordinated to ensure as efficient, and safe goods transport as possible, as well as a new electric compact wheel loader concept.
On September 12, the new goods transport solution was unveiled for the first time in connection with the Volvo Group’s Innovation Summit in Berlin. It consists of autonomous electric vehicles that are wirelessly connected to a transport control centre.
The control centre monitors parameters such as each vehicle’s location, load and battery charge, using this data to ensure that the overall fleet logistics as well as goods and vehicle flow are as efficient as possible.
