New Scania truck has no cab

The AXL concept truck is designed to be operated in a connected driverless transport system. There is no driver cabin, which is replaced by a front-mounted module that houses all the autonomous driving componenty – cameras, radar, lidar, GPS receivers, and so on.

 

The concept truck is a 50 ton off-road tipper truck being tested in an open-cast mine near Scania’s head office in Södertälje, Sweden.

 

“Autonomous driving is not coming…it is here already," said Christian Levin, COO of Traton AG. "We have already delivered vehicles and many more tests will be under way." Traton AG is part of Volkswagen group and is the holding company for the truck brands, MAN, Scania and Volkswagen.

 

The AXL tipper truck is powered by biofuel. Scania plans to introduce an electric drive train in the near future.
