Automation will revolutionize the transport industry – it will improve productivity, lower fuel consumption, and optimize traffic management and route planning among other things. For drivers it will increase safety, improve working conditions and in many cases introduce new ways of working. Automation is not about killing jobs – there will still be a need for skilled drivers in the future.

      most Truckers would be very Happy if they 100 % Automated the Dispatching Systems out.. most drivers wouldn't miss the Dispatchers at all : ) , Automate them first then work on automation of the Trucks later on. it would be more financially efficient for the company's to automize out the dispatchers first.

      In years to come gangs of unemployed truck drivers will turn to harpooning passing autodrive trucks and taxing the load.

      The role of the person operating the vehicle will likely shift over time, but there will always be a need for human interaction at some level. In general terms our aim is to introduce features within automation to support the driver. In some limited segments like mining we reach higher levels of productivity by running self-driving trucks in confined spaces. We believe that the transformation to self-driving trucks will require some time and during that time the driver role will be changed.

      Volvo Trucks this is where the crap starts Technology should assist a human but not replace him and that’s what this is going towards

      The automation technology should be regarded as a complement
      to the human.

      I understand that safety systems are important, but this is going to far.... I became a truck-driver to control a big truck, not to relax and sit back.

      part of what guy says in this video is "stupid", for example our in a truck on the high way driving its self and so you decide to take a nap and get some sleep, therefore your eyes are not on the road or on anything important, and sudenly someone else has an acident and goes off the motorway, how can the truck detect that, will it just go passed it?

      loving the videos, wish my company had volvos...xD

      Michael Neves not sure how EBS works, but I guess it's relatively 'dumb' technology (e.g. proximity sensor). Next generation technology could implement smarter object recognition to prevent the stuff you've experienced.. Let's hope for the best

      felix As a truck driver in the uk and having experienced those EBS breaking systems where the sensor detects something in front of the truck and starts breaking for me, no thank you for me, as ive had a close enconter with a car because of it yes because of it. So for me its all turn off before going anywhere.

      I'd trust a computer to do the emergency steering better than most/all humans (think: ESP, ABS, which have been in place for 20+ years and saving tens of thousands lives so far)

      Hi Michael. Thanks for watching. We are still carrying out a number of research projects where safety aspects are one of the main areas we study. When it comes to our commercial offer we have one rule: Any new technology that we offer to our customers should be as safe as or safer than what exists already.
