Sany has partnered with AI drivers to develop a new automated terminal truck.

Sany Port Equipment continues to expand its range of cranes and mobile equipment. Most recently it entered the terminal tractor market, with a 6x2 electric “terminal truck”, which was announced at TOC Asia earlier this year.


At a press conference at this week’s TOC Europe event in Rotterdam Sany and AI Drivers announced a new partnership that will see Sany offer an autonomous version of the terminal truck using sensor technology, an equipment control system an artificial intelligence platform from AI Drivers.


AI Drivers is headed by founder and CEO Dr. Rafiq Swash. Speaking with WorldCargo News, Dr Swash said AI Drivers was able to install its autonomous driving system on Sany’s terminal truck and conduct pilot tests in just one week. The tests included driving a loop from underneath a stacking crane to simulate a quay to stack transfer.


Dr Swash is confident AI Drivers has developed its sensor fusion technology, which uses LiDar and other sensors, to the point where it can be integrated into an existing manned vehicle such as Sany’s terminal truck. It is not as simple, however, as retrofitting an automation kit to any existing truck or terminal tractor, which will be discussed further in WorldCargo News in future.


AI Drivers is working on partnership agreements with other companies, including terminal operators, and expects to make more announcements in the coming weeks.
