Swedish tech start-up Einride unveils all-electric and autonomous logging truck
At the Goodwood Festival of Speed event in the UK this week, Swedish technology start-up Einride has unveiled an all-electric and autonomous logging truck called The T-Log.
While unveiling the T-Log logging truck, Enride said that the all-electric and autonomous truck builds on the company’s previously unveiled T-Pod truck. However, the company did not disclose any timeline for the production of the T-Log or its expected price.
According to the information shared by Enride, the Nvidia Drive self-driving platform has been used by the company to bring autonomous driving technology to the T-Log logging truck. Enride also added that the T-Log not only has self-driving capabilities, but also comes with a ‘remote control’ advantage.
Explaining that a human operator can remote control the T-Log logging truck from hundreds of miles away with the help of Phantom Auto teleoperation safety technology, Enride said that the cost of production of T-Log will be low because the truck has been designed without a driver’s cab.
With Enride claiming that the 200 kWh battery pack of the T-Log will give it a 200 km (124 miles) range on a single charge, the company’s CEO Robert Falck said at the T-Log unveiling: “With the T-log, we’ve created a vehicle that can withstand the rigours of a demanding environment.”
