No driver need keep a ‘log’ book for this vehicle! Unveiled at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the T-log could prove a boon to the forestry sector. This autonomous, all-electric logging truck is intended to improve worker safety while reducing impact on the environment.
“With the T-log, we’ve created a vehicle that can withstand the rigours of a demanding environment,” Robert Falck from its Swedish designer, Einride, says.
Such vehicles should prove more cost-effective too.
“The driver’s cab is what makes trucks expensive to produce, and having a driver in the cabin is what makes them expensive to operate. Remove the cabin and replace the driver with an operator who can monitor and remote-control several vehicles at once and costs can be reduced significantly.”
Einride intends to introduce the T-log by 2020. Interest has already been expressed by several major global companies, Mr Falck confirms.
