First self-driving trucks on European motorway
Scania is to run self-driving trucks transporting goods on the E4 motorway between Södertälje and Jönköping in Sweden, the first in Europe

“We have come so far in the development of self-driving vehicles that the technology may be ready to be introduced to the market already within the next five years for this type of transportation. However, it will take longer before autonomous vehicles for driving on roads with two-way traffic and in urban environments becomes a reality,” added Nordin.

Scania’s partner TuSimple – with its headquarters in San Diego, US, and with facilities in Tucson, Shanghai and Beijing – has carried out millions of kilometres of tests on motorways to develop the self-driving technology for automation level 4.
