Volvo unveils Vera self-driving electric truck, with no cab. Watch it in the video…
Volvo’s Vera is an autonomous vehicle that forms part of a larger system.
It has the potential to optimize transport in highly-repetitive, short distance flows with large volumes of goods, such as ports, factory areas and logistical mega centers, where it offers better delivery precision and flexibility.
The sophisticated technology enables round-the-clock operations, while the electric drive-lines means a significant reduction in CO2 emissions and noise levels. A cloud-based service connects each vehicle to a transport control center, which continuously monitors and optimizes the logistics flow. In the near future, Vera will be further developed by Volvo Trucks together with selected customers in prioritized applications.
