With the new cabless Scania AXL self-driving concept vehicle , we are taking a significant step towards the smart transport systems of the future, where self-driving vehicles will play a natural part”, says Scania’s President and CEO Henrik Henriksson. “We continue to build and pilot concepts to show what we can do with the technology that is available today.”
For autonomous vehicles, software is in many ways more important than hardware. Scania AXL is steered and monitored by an intelligent control environment. In mines, for example, the autonomous operations are facilitated by a logistics system that tells the vehicle how it should perform.
