Scania Introduces Self-Driving Trucks

Scania announced that it is taking autonomous transport solutions to a new higher level with the introduction of self-driving trucks and buses for trials on public roads. The company said it has successfully developed self-driving trucks for closed areas, such as mines, ports and terminals. Scania stated that it is designing full-scale autonomous truck platooning operations, in cooperation with the Singapore Ministry of Transport and the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA Corporation). The platoon will traffic public roads while transporting containers between port terminals in Singapore. To prepare for the Singapore operation, the company recently deployed a fully autonomous platoon with three trucks travelling at the typical European speed of 80 km/h with a one-half second gap, equal to approximately ten metres. In addition, an autonomous city bus is now used on a route at Scania's R&D facilities in Södertälje. The bus to departs autonomously after being triggered by a downloaded timetable, making planned intermediate stops for embarking and disembarking passengers.

Scania Introduces New Engines, Cabs and Services

Scania is continuing with the major roll-out it began last year, with more and more services and products going into production and being launched to customers. The order books are now open on a new generation of Scania's robust, five-cylinder engines, as well as the first variants of the new G cab. A number of services and performance enhancements are also being introduced, with most sharing a focus on improving productivity and total operating economy for European long-distance and forestry trucks. When in 2016 Scania embarked on its biggest launch ever, the common themes linking the introduction were connected services, products for long-distance operations, and sustainability. Now the journey down this path continues with the introduction of more choices and solutions as production gets underway. Up until now, Scania has only released a small proportion of all the pending innovations, and only in Europe. The fact that Scania is now offering a greater range of specifications doesn't mean that the company has lowered its targets as the launch goes forward. Scania places a high value on face-to-face interactions with customers and on its message that it has a total focus on customers' businesses and profitability.
