Volvo Autonomous Solutions provides more than autonomous vehicles, we built an entire ecosystem and package the solution to offer it to our customers as Transport as a Service. Our autonomous solutions will redefine the transport industry by providing an efficient and scalable transport solution that you can trust. It runs 24/7, eliminates surprises, improves your operations, and unlocks significant value.
We work closely together with our customers to tailor a complete solution that improves overall productivity, safety and sustainability. Exactly what the solution will look like varies with the customer’s need.
We deliver not only the automated vehicles, but also the eco-system needed for the operations to run smoothly. We offer Transport as a Service (TaaS).
These types of applications can be confined and highly regulated which makes it easier to separate autonomous transports from other processes. The process of loading, transporting and dumping are relatively simple and repetitive – and thereby very suitable for autonomous solutions.
Volvo Autonomous Solutions are starting small with less complex use cases and will build additional functionality upon proven successes. The next step could bigger scale applications such as underground mining or tunnel applications, helping to remove people from hazardous locations.
Autonomous transports with low noise levels and zero exhaust emissions have an important role to play in the future of logistics and will benefit both business and society.
Short transports with high precision, like within ports and logistic centers, are well suited for autonomous solutions.
The vehicles are equipped with sophisticated systems for autonomous driving. They are designed to locate their current position to within centimeters, monitor in detail and analyze the behavior of other road users, and then respond with high accuracy.
The transport control center continuously monitors the transport and keeps an accurate watch of each vehicle's position and a number of other parameters. Speed and progress are tailored to increase delivery precision and to minimize waste and increase availability. Vehicles that operate on the same route are optimized to create an optimal flow.
In it for the long-haul. Our Hub-to-Hub solution will complement today’s transport system by adding autonomous freight capacity for moving goods efficiently, safely, and sustainably across highway corridors.
Our Autonomous Transport Solution provides game-changing efficiency. 24/7 operations and freight capacity scalable to changing demands and improving supply chains, shorten delivery time and increase asset utilization.
The V.A.S. Hub-to-Hub transportation solution is being developed for the US market.
