Einride T-Pod Driverless Truck To Hit The Road This Fall

Another day, another self-driving truck is ready to hit the road! Swedish transport company Einride just announced its autonomous truck, the T-Pod, will start delivering merchandise this fall. Unfortunately for the rest of the world looking for self-driving technology, the T-Pod will only be available in Sweden.

Einride plans to deploy a fleet of 200 T-Pods on the route between Gothenburg and Helsingborg – about 120 miles – ferrying up to 15 cargo pallets each. On highways, it will be driverless, but on small roads a driver will remotely control the vehicle. 

The Einride T-Pod is capable of traveling up to 124 miles on a single charge and is powered by Nvidia’s DRIVE AI platform for path planning and environment sensing. 

In the company’s own words, the T-Pod’s mission is “to be a major contributor to a sustainable society by lowering the carbon dioxide emissions of the transport industry.” Certainly, if Einride accomplishes its goal of deploying the 200 driverless trucks by 2020, the T-Pod will be able to ferry 2 million pallets per year and reduce CO2 emission by 33,000 tons, accomplishing its mission in extraordinary fashion.
