5G to enable sustainable, self-driving trucks

November 07, 2018 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Ericsson, Telia and Einride are creating a significantly more sustainable transport ecosystem by connecting electric, autonomous vehicles using 5G with the aim of reducing or eliminating harmful emissions.

The trio are putting 5G into motion at a DB Schenker facility in Jönköping, Sweden to enable an all-electric, autonomous transport ecosystem that takes fleet management to the next level.

Ericsson Radio System and Ericsson Cloud Core for 5G are providing high performance connectivity to Einride's T-pod – a driverless vehicle operating continuously at DB Schenker's logistics facilities in Jönköping, Sweden.

The high-capacity and low-latency characteristics of 5G will be key to future transport systems. Einride's T-pod and autonomous transport system, powered by 5G, can potentially replace more than 60 percent of today's transport with a cost-competitive and sustainable alternative.

In addition, 5G presents an opportunity for telecom operators to tap into new revenue streams emerging from the digitalization of industries. An Ericsson report on 5G business potential shows a USD 619 billion revenue opportunity for telecom operators by 2026.
