In a video released by interesting engineering, Volvo automobile group displayed the video coverage of their concept for a next-generation driverless car. The ultra-sleek and compact design driverless car displayed by Volvo group is the first of its kind.

The car has an extension system for a truck which 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 a long distance travel autonomously covering several miles and making good and accurate U-turn in the required areas on the road.

The special aspect of the Volvo design is the ability to convert the truck into and vice-versa. Despite being used as a truck, the next-generation electric driverless car concept has one of the most fascinating designs and resemblance of a sports car.

The appearance when seen without the attachment of the truck makes the 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 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.
