This electric driverless logging truck can carry up to 16 tons of timber
Swedish self-driving truck startup Einride is out with another eye-catching prototype. Much like the company’s first autonomous offering, the new T-Log is all-electric and completely driverless, and it completely lacks a front cab for human drivers. But unlike the T-Pod, the T-Log comes equipped with off-roading capabilities and is designed for one specific purpose: hauling tons of gigantic tree logs.
Unveiled on Thursday at the UK’s Goodwood Festival, the T-Log is more powerful than the T-Pod, and it’s designed to carry up to 16 tons of cargo. It can also navigate dense, uneven forest roads, the startup claims, making it ideally suited for logging purposes.
How exactly this truck with no human...
