Vera - Volvo Trucks

Autonomous Electric Vehicle

Vera is an autonomous, electric vehicle that can operate with significantly less exhaust emissions and low noise levels. It is controlled and monitored via a control centre, and has the potential to make transportation safer, cleaner and more efficient. Vera combines the benefits of three big technological areas – automation, connectivity and electromobility – to create optimal flows in transportation and logistics operations. The operation is handled by autonomous electric vehicles equipped with sophisticated systems for autonomous driving. They are designed to locate their current position to within centimetres, analyse what is happening with other road users, and then respond with high accuracy. Each vehicle operates at low speed to ensure maximum safety. The vehicles are entirely electric with low noise levels. The driveline and battery pack are of the same type that are used in Volvo Trucks’ electric trucks. Each vehicle is connected to a control centre. The transport control centre continuously monitors the progress of the transport and keeps an accurate watch of each vehicle’s position, the batteries’ charge, load content, service requirements and a number of other parameters. From the transport control centre, the speed and progress of operations is tailored to avoid unnecessary waiting and to increase delivery precision. This way it will be possible to minimise waste with buffer stock, and increase availability. Vehicles that operate on the same route cooperate to create optimal flow.
