The age of autonomous cars is upon us and it’s not only passenger vehicles we can expect to change! The Volvo Autonomous Trailer AT404 explores what we might expect from the brand, known for making hardworking tractor/trailers, were they to develop an autonomous ground cargo shipping system.
The cabin, where before there was a driver, becomes an extra loading space. This is followed by not just one large trailer, but a group of modular containers that are held together via electromagnetic tech. Almost entirely autonomously, different containers can join, detach from, and be delivered to the destination with more efficiency, quickness and ease.
