8 Future Trucks & Buses YOU MUST SEE

This truck is completely anonymous. It does not need any other systems to operate, so you can't drive this truck without any assistance, any preconditions on any infrastructure and whatsoever it drives by itself. It'S autonomous, [, Music ]. It'S it's a strange feeling, but after a couple kilometers, I'm very, very comfortable, I feel very safe. I'Ve been feel very secure and I have to say it's really fun to drive the truck Music ]. Actually, it's very simple right. You push that button and you lean back and relax. That'S all that it's about everything else has been done by the system the system takes over, and pilots you to the traffic. It'S just great. It'S a good feeling number two Walmart's advanced vehicle experience which are seen in the video is the powertrain which is made up of a micro turbine, a battery storage system and an electric motor moving inside the cab through the sliding driver's door. You'Ll see the key difference that allowed for the more dramatic Aero design the driver sits in the center of the console rather than over to the left. The dash is electronic and therefore customizable to the gauges and performance data that a particular driver wants to monitor and it's all finished off with a full-size comfortable sleeper moving on to the trailer. Not only is this the first time a trailer has been made out of carbon fiber, but it's actually the first time one piece 53 foot panels of carbon fiber have been manufactured. Looking at the front of the trailer, you can see that the nose is convex which increases the aerodynamics of the entire package, as well as adding additional cargo space inside the trailer. My name is Bill, Condon, the manager of advanced concepts of Peterbilt motors and the program director on the wave project. We'Ve missed a little bit about the aerodynamics of the truck, but let me elaborate a little bit further. You notice, with the center console driver, were able to taper the nose of the vehicle in war. Another key feature is that, because we have an advanced powertrain, we do not need to have the radiator in front of vehicle anymore. This relates to 20 % improvement in aerodynamics over melt over Walmart's existing Peterbilt fleet. If you think about it, 20 % aerodynamic improvement relates directly to a 10 % improvement in fuel economy number please: [: Music, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ], can't you Music, ], [, Music, ] number four Music, ], Music, ] number five Music ] in our almost 75 years of history, Freightliner, has always been focused on our customer needs.

This is the next step forward. Av technology employs radar, camera and advanced sensors in order to identify track vehicles in its path, maintain safe following distances, as well as following the contours of the road ahead in order to stay within the lane. So with features like adaptive, cruise control and act of breaking, these are the core functions of what's required for a V. Now, as we go forward, the new functions of active lane-keeping are added into these building blocks functions to have a fully autonomous driving vehicle.
