Scania has autonomous trucks running in mines and is planning similar trials with other applications such as platooning (convoy) autonomous trucks between ports. Driverless, automated and digitally connected, these smart unmanned vehicles are under supervision from a control tower to ensure the best efficiency and productivity.
