The future novelty will get the FLIR system of Autonomous control, as well as the opportunity to connect in a single column with one the lead truck. And the trucks will get a modern aerodynamic design.
Isuzu FLIR is a new concept truck from the Japanese company, which will be presented at the forthcoming Tokyo motor show. The public debut will take place on 23 October 2019, but the press service of the brand decided to talk about his new product and show some pictures.
The main feature of the new trucks will become Autonomous control system capable of integration into a single network with the same trucks. This will create a single column of transport with one transport head in the beginning, and several subordinates tractors, responsive to commands and information from the head of transport. This will allow all trucks to adapt to the single rhythm of movement, to respond to dangerous situations, as well as to minimize the creation of traffic jams and to reduce fuel consumption.
Specifications are not revealed yet. While I can only judge on the design, in the style of marine animals (according to manufacturer). In addition, the car is reminiscent of “the mighty robot with a shark’s appearance,” added the company.
Similar systems are developing and other world leaders of the segment, including Daimler. Whether information systems was developed with a single standard and with the possibility of integration with each other is still unknown.
