Besides do not need gasoline, this truck also does not need the driver

The world is currently concentrating on autonomous vehicles that have been developed by many automotive manufacturers. Autonomous cars or cars without drivers are often expected to be technologies that will be able to serve mankind and simplify their performance when under the car's control.

But it turns out autonomous technology is not only targeted to develop technology to cars and motorcycles as developed by Honda some time ago. The automation technology is also developed for this truck. Under the name T-Pod, this white truck prototype made by Swedish-company named Einride is expected to be the first truck that uses an autonomous system while working.

And even more cool is that Einride-made trucks can go just like Tesla's electric-fueled car. So it is certain that this truck will save energy and not cause pollution because it does not emit emissions. This truck has a fairly large dimension with antelope-like logo on the front.

This autonomous truck has a total weight of 70 tons if it is in full condition, with a length of up to 7 meters. The unique thing is that this truck does not need the driver directly, because under conditions when driving on the highway this truck can use a fully autonomous system while if on the city streets this truck can be override by human-hand remotely.
As quoted of Autoblog, Einride is currently developing the charging infrastructure for its T-Pod, and plans to have a finished truck available to customers later this year. By 2020, the company plans to have 200 T-Pods operating on a route between the cities of Gothenburg and Helsingborg, Sweden, moving 2 million pallets of goods per year.

After seen and knew it, we can only hope that in the near future there will be present much more of useful technologies and as well as facilitate mankind work. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | EINRIDE | AUTOBLOG]
