Features Of Volvo Next-Generation Driverless Car
Mercedes Benz, Toyota, Honda, Ferrari, and now Volvo automobiles are among the top automakers that have released different concepts of their future cars meant to feature a total autonomous drive and other modern technologies.
In information made available by interesting engineering, the Volvo automobile group displayed the visual coverage of their concept for a next-generation driverless car. The ultra-sleek and compact design driverless car displayed by the Volvo group is the first of its kind.
The car has an extension system for a truck that can fit any standard trailer. In its description, an autonomous electric truck was shown as a revelation of the car extension and its potential for conversion into a truck.
In a simple test, the car used as a truck was able to make long-distance travel autonomously covering several miles and making good and accurate U-turns in the required areas on the road.
The special aspect of the Volvo design is the ability to convert the truck into vice-versa.
Despite being used as a truck, the next-generation electric driverless car concept has one of the most fascinating designs and resemblance to a sports car.
The appearance when seen without the attachment of the truck makes Volvo’s concept special since one can assume it to be a sports car. Not just a sports car, but a special one with a fascinating design. Its four-wheel arrangement is not far from that of the modern designs of private cars.
The car is said to operate with a cloud-based system which enables its autonomous movement. The same service allows for the coordinated movement of multiple self-driving trucks.
The cloud system will mean a smoother workflow and a faster transportation system for future trucks. Actually, Volvo is set to surprise the public with this latest design.
The images below show a clear aspect of the car, how it can be converted into the truck with just a simple linkage joint. When the time of using it as truck elapses, the car can be separated and driven as a simple sports car based on design.
