The future of hauling cargo around the country may well be in driverless, autonomous trucks. The newest proposed transport solution to make shipping safer and more efficient is Volvo’s beautiful autonomous Vera truck concept.

Intended for short distances, accomplishing regular and repetitive tasks, the Vera will be connected to a cloud service and a transport control center to manage its predetermined routes. The control center will keep track of various details, such as the progress of the truck’s mission, a live log of every Vera on the road, the charge of each of their batteries, their load content, service requirements, and other crucial metrics. The Vera will be powered entirely by an electric propulsion system with zero exhaust emissions. Will we one day see the highways crawling with autonomous trucks like the Vera? Only time will tell.
